I really loved this park. This was taken during a recent Loners On Wheels campout. Next one is on the opposite shore on 2/27/15.

The silicone spray idea worked for me. I didn't think it would, but hit the wheel covers with some Liquid Wrench and they went back on with ease. I still can't easily get air in the tires with them on but at least I no longer fear pulling them off.

Thanks. Some of the keys are light weight and compact. There are many nooks and cranys in our 21ft. baby.  Then I fill the toaster oven with kitchen linens, and have made a platform above the water tank that holds pans and plates. Amazing all the storage space you can find when you start looking. 

Hmmm.....I'm going to have to go look at my water tank now!! Awesome idea! I agree, there's a lot more storage in the 2100 than you think. I have a propane grill. a propane campfire, one small electric burner (I paid $10 for it at Big Lots) and an electric teakettle. Oh, and a Nutribullet and a Ninja immersion blender/food processor combo. Oh, and a pressure cooker and a cast iron skillet. :-) I spend most of my time without hookups so I could not live without the propane burners. The corian stove cover is way nicer than the burner toppers you see on raised cooktops and makes it  pretty seamless countertop when you're not using the stove. Roadtrek makes an all electric model with no propane, but I wouldn't be without it.

Has anyone replaced these things? I DESPISE's impossible to get my compressor on the valve stem with them on and I am tired of screwing with them. I pulled them off to add air to the front tires and I really can't bring myself to put them back on. (Ok, also not like I probably COULD get them back on)  Any aftermarket options?

Thanks. I do dry camp almost all the time. I had a small inverter that I plugged into the 12v outlet by the tv that I used for the longest time as I thought using the 2000w inverter to run under 100w of electronics was a waste. But I guess I got tired of extension cords hanging out of the cabinet and started using the built-in inverter.  And promptly had a hard drive fried. Maybe a coincidence but it's also pretty noisy which I don't care for.

Hi all, I use a lot of electronic gadgets and I am a bit afraid of the MSW inverter in my PC Cruiser. I had my first ever hard drive failure while plugged into it, and have had issues with the new laptop. So I am thinking of swapping it out with a pure sine wave model. Any one else ever do this?

Thanks for the replies. Yes, the parking brake is set, there's a different light that shows when I forget.  I've always had the engine running when leveling as I thought the manual said so, but I see now that was just on the written notes the seller gave me.  But I've always done it that way, and I used to be able to level as soon as I turned the system on, and now there's a delay. I'll crawl under one of these days soon and see what's what....I have to reattach my hitch wiring socket somehow.  (And the leveler delay started before the hitch dragging incident so they're not related)

Hmm.....I'll have to go check the manual again. I could have sworn it said "ignition on"

I looked in my manual but didn't see anything about this....  When I try to use the levelers, I put the rv in park with the engine running and turn on the system. When I press the arrow for the jack I want to extend, the red light by the power button, which had been steady, blinks and the jacks don't move. I'll try it again and again, and eventually after a few minutes, the jacks will extend.  It used to be that as soon as I wanted to level it would work, this delay is a new thing.  Storing the jacks works as it always did. Any ideas?

Haha I don't know and hope never to find out. :-)  That's all sand. :-)

I get cold just looking at these pics but it was 65 deg last month when I was there.

This dirt road is not really recommended for RV's. A couple people told me I could do it no problem but it was beyond my comfort zone in a few places. I dragged the hitch carrier a few times, and ripped the wiring socket off. :-(  Ah well, it was a gorgeous drive.

Nope, no air bags.  Not sure what may have been done to the suspension as I bought it used, but the seller didn't talk up any upgrades and one would think he would have.  I love the high ground clearance.....I'd be terrified with some of the rigs out there and their low ground clearances.  Being fairly short, when I level it, I sometimes have to use a stepstool at the door,  but it's a small price to pay.  Thanks for the compliments on the pics.

I have a no-slide 2100.  The couch as-is is not terrifically comfy but doable.  I picked up a Coleman SUV Quickbed air mattress that fits like it's made for it and that's way better.  However, I grew weary of making and unmaking the couch into a bed, and storing all the bedding, so I now leave the dinette made up full time.  As Ron said, that makes a lot more storage room available, including the fact that I no longer need to store the bedding.  Pics of my rig are here:

I do have much less bedding now, I was carrying memory foam, sleeping bags & air mattresses for both beds, but I've gotten rid of most it....if I have company it will be BYOB.  :-)

Haha....the name is Gail and you're very welcome.  I have never towed anything ever so was pretty phobic about doing it.  I was dreading going to the Uhaul place and trying to back up to the trailer to hook up.  When I got there, the lot was so crowded I didn't know what to do, just parked right in front of the door.  It turned out to be a non issue, they brought the trailer to me using a little dolly that went under the hitch.  Awesome.  While the 5x8 trailer has a 4-wire connection, it fits that 5 wire adapter as well.  The 5th wire is for trailers with a brake controller, according to the Uhaul guy, so it's good to buy that one & then you can tow either one.  I couldn't see the trailer in the mirrors at all.  I drove from northern VA to Panama City FL.....left at 8:30PM on the 4th of July & got there on the 6th.  Spent the nights at Cracker Barrels in Roanoke, VA & Columbus GA, plus took an afternoon siesta at the SC Welcome Center.  Thankfully we had a couple cool nights. 

I did have to slam on the brakes once when someone cut me off.  I definitely knew the trailer was there then.  As I said, I am pretty sure I overloaded the trailer though.  I had 10 cases of wine in there.  :-)  I did try to weigh everything while loading but the scale died halfway through so I just had to hope for the best.
