Looks like a great book to have as a reference...I think it tells you much more about each exit....not sure if it mentions dump stations...

Your mention of "The Next Exit" brought a smile - that book was a LIFESAVER for us. We bought our first Airstream over the internet, waited for spring thaw to drive from Indiana to upstate New York to pick it up. It was a 31' 1976 Sovereign, we had no idea what we were doing, and with the terrible hitch set up we had we are so lucky we made it as far as Erie, PA, where we realized we were really in trouble and needed help. The trailer was setting at such an angle we kept losing air in the back tires. We got out The Next Exit - I don't even remember now how we happened to have it -and learned there was a dealer in Erie that offered overnight parking. They were closed when we arrived but someone came by in the snow and offered us an electric hookup, and we spent our first night in their parking lot. The next morning they fixed us up and we drove safely home.

We highly recommend the publication. Sandy

The sliding cabinet doors above the galley are now LRF-compliant.

I attached Little Rubber Feet along the bottom of each sliding door to add just enough friction so the doors won't keep sliding forward every time we tow the trailer.

I also attached the same Little Rubber Feet to the bathroom doorframe so that the door no longer rattles when its closed, bouncing gently instead against the LRF.

Total cost: Probably less than a dollar.

I'll have to think about it for a second because my husband does most of the grilling, but I'm almost positive you leave the grill on and place the griddle on top. Yes, we use it for bacon all the time. Really have been pleased.

What did you use to wash it? Also, what is the tall antenna? TV? Do you have 3 ACs?

Armor All Wash and Wax. Any car wash soap will do.
TV antenna. We get 8 channels. CBS, NBC, Fox, and PBS.
2 roof airs and a MaxxAir cover on the Fantastic fan.

I got a couple of grandchildren for a few days. I am the luckiest lady around. We told ghost stories, rode bikes and had good old fashion unplugged fun.
