Another great Florida State Park is Koreshan Historic Site in Estero.  It is right off of 41 with alot to do in the area.  There is the Koreshan settlement that you can tour, it is right on the river with canioe rentals and it is in the midst of city life but very secluded and quiet.  The Coconut Point shopping area is only a couple of miles away and that is like a city within a city.  Great night life to just stroll and window shop.  They have great sites, very private but close enough to meet many wonderful people.  And the beaches are only a few miles away as well. Of course it gets booked in the winter.  We will be spending the last two days of February there before we head to the beach for three weeks.

We have been to Silver River State Park a couple of times.  We always got a pull thru site.  I don't think thy have a bad site there.

When you rent an RV drive or fly to your destination and then rent your RV.  Most RV rentals have a per mile charge.

We would also recommend Florida and in particular the Fort Myers Beach area.  We have been going to this park for over 10 years, just love it.  Very relaxed, casual and only a few hundred feet from the gulf but there is a lot of sand.

Here is a link to the manual for the Winegard Antenna:

A couple of other things to consider.

1.  Have the antenna amplifier turned on before you scan for stations on your TV.

2.  Insure your TV is set up to receive an over the air signal and not a cable signal.

3.  If the red light does not come on you might have a blown 12V fuse.  

Good Luck

The limit is with the hitch not the 2551.  The PC would be able to pull a 6,000 pound toad with a good health safety margin.

Curb weight is the total weight of a vehicle with standard equipment, all necessary operating consumables (i.e., motor oil and coolant), a full tank of fuel, while not loaded with either passengers or cargo.

Starting at 3,970 you need to add the weight of any options that were installed at the factory (i.e. skid plates and 4WD) or anything added by a previous owner, plus the weight of the towbar, plus the weight of any cargo you add to the GC.  Easiest way to determine the weight of the CG is to go to a scale and get it weighed.  This can usually be done for about $10.

I looked at the hitch on our 2012 2551 and the hitch is bolted to the frame.  It looks simple enough to remove and have a higher rated hitch installed.

You might be able to change out the existing 5K hitch for a 10K hitch.

I'm assuming you have the Xantrex Inverter.  My first suggestion would be to test the actual output voltage from the batteries.  A fully charged battery should be above 12.7 V and should hold that voltage for many days.  If the battery looks good follow the red cable back to the inverter testing at each connection.  If all connections test OK ( >12.7V) wait a few days and check to make sure the battery is able to hold a charge for a long period of time.  One weak battery will result in both batteries being drained.

A digital volt meter is required to get an accurate reading.  I carry an inexpensive one I picked up at Harbor Freight.  Here is a link to their web site:
