that makes sense. I can't find the elec. switch because there isn't one. Thanks for the heads-up.
yep. I found that main hot-water tank switch. How could I miss it? Whenver I am seated on the loo it is staring me right in the face. It gives the most assuring clunk when I press it - the system is giving me lotsa hot water. Oh....one thing I discovered, if it doesn`t kick in, turn it off for 30 seconds and try again. Something about length of time between heating - it has to reboot or something. One thing I am pleasant surprised about is the tank`s ability to keep the water hot long after I have flipped the switch off. On day one, it was really cold here. After two-plus hours, the water was still hot.

hokay. wouldn`t want you to lose sleep or nuttin`.
This will give you an idea of the general area.
Every tourist passing through has to stop and do the hokey photo-op. The first Rambo movie was shot in and around Hope, hence the hysteria. Many scenes were filmed at the Othello Tunnels. If you ever make your way here, they are worth looking at. I didn`t stop because I have been there many times, sans Airstream.

asked....Fly at Night? Think you'll try Cafe Pascual's on this trip?
I tried, but........
: You got some place I can eat around here?
: Theres a diner about thirty miles up the road.
: Is there a law against me getting something to eat here?
: Yeah, me.
....so carried on to Nine-Mile Hill. At the summit, you`ll find the Hope Slide.
, half the blinkin`mountain came down. I`m glad it didn`t come down on my new Airstream. I know...I know. Pretty crass and materialistic, huh. There is a viewpoint at the slide, but likewise didn`t stop because I have been there many times. But it`s another good place to see with the trailer. Lots of parking with a small picnic area, and signage detailing the slide. The viewing area and rebuilt highway is atop the rubble.
Carrying on eastward a few miles, finally made it to my destination - the Sunshine Valley RV Resort. I chose this for my shakedown cruise because it wasn`t too far away from home base, and was given two nights of complimentary stay when I purchased the trailer from the dealer. Of course, nothing really is free; was given a sales pitch to buy into the resort and its network throughout North America. Sunshine Valley is part of the Holiday Trails membership network. I will give you some details later. I don`t know if the full membership would be viable at this point in time, but there are other options.
Anyway, Sunshine Valley is their latest project; the resort is not finished, but has many nice ammenities. I will take some more pictures later today - the indoor pool is very inviting. It is open year round. They hope to lure the skiers from nearby Manning Park. Right now the place is abuzz with ATVers, but they are located at the rear of the park, so it`s fairly quiet where I am parked right now.
It was nice to wake-up to sun and the fresh mountain air. I feel like one of the Waltons.
The roof of the resort clubhouse featuring a store, indoor & outdoor pools, exercise room, community meeting area etc. The sites offer more privacy than usual; the cedar hedging is nice!
Talk to you later John Boys, et al. There`s a nice creek at the back of the resort - the dog wants to go for a walk and get her feet wet.
If I get ambitious, might even hike the old highway to the point where it was obliterated by the slide.
I like to inspect these anomalies......
the highway to nowhere.
