Hi Bill,
We're newbies ourselves. This will be our first time camping with other Streamers. We look forward to meeting you.

Ummmmm, Terry?

Could we have a mini how-to seminar on disassembling and cleaning Fantastic Fans? Is that possible?

If not, any tips from attendees would be appreciated.

We camped there one night, July 31, and were treated royally. We arrived in the afternoon late and were quickly invited to have a meal in the club house. The meal was delicious and the hospitality great. The scenery of Airstreams and countryside was wonderful. They were expecting people to start arriving the following day for a rally but our schedule was pressing and the park was to be filled, so we hit the road the next morning. I'm sure all who attend will have a great time.

Bluegrass at Floyd Country Store

Just a little info for those of you that have never been to Floyd on a Friday night. The Country Store is open all day and has some simple but very good food on the menu - like grilled cheese and tomato soup, pulled pork bbq.

The music starts at 6:30pm with a gospel group and then there are two bands after that at 7:30 and 9pm. The place fills in a hurry, so it is a good idea to think about getting to town around 4:30 when the $5 tickets go on sale, get a bite to eat at the store or one of several other restaurants within 2 blocks, and then get a seat before the music starts.

It is about a 20+ minute drive from HH to Floyd.

If you come later than about 6pm it is usually standing room only. However walking around the store is a treat as well and they stay open til 11pm on Friday nites.

Looking forward to meeting you all. We can provide a hot appetizer for the pot luck on Saturday.

We remove the screen and wash it regularly, it's the blades and other bits&pieces that really need a scrubbing. .

Does not look like every coming has signed up. You can do it here.Airstream Forums - Virginia Highland Haven - Casual

Here is a couple of pictures of the Highland Haven Sunsets we took a couple of weeks ago. I wish we were there today. It is really hot and humid in Florida.

I usually use a product such as black streak remover, and spray it on the fan blades, wipe them, then rinse them off with a spray bottle of water. Place a good-sized towel underneath to catch the drippings.

Ummm, that sounds very messy.

I envisioned immersing these filthy fan parts in hot, soapy water. Is it not possible to take this apart from the inside and wash it?

Doug is afraid to try it. (I'm the fool who tends to rush in......). So, I look at it and hate it.

I really thought this could be done, we just needed to know how. ???

The fan blade is not meant to come off. The motor assembly is hard wired into the base, so any careful immersion ( to keep the motor dry) would require cutting and splicing wires.

We would be two of the Airstreamers who hadn't RSVP'd, but I just completed that. Well, I said this will be our first rally....................sorry, but I just didn't think of it.

We are planning to pack Thursday night, and leave here by 9am or earlier, stopping for breakfast. We don't know how long the drive will be, but we are guesstimating 5-6 hrs., so hoping to be there by 3pm. Is there a check-in time that we can't get in before?

Paula, are you still looking for another DO? If so, I have an extra footed DO you can use while there if you'd like. Just let me know and I'll bring it along; it is a little larger one (a Lodge).

Thanks, AirHeadsRus, for the reminder.

Deb

Well, okay then. I'll try it your way. You buy black streak remover at someplace like autozone?

Thanks for the info.
