Ron and everyone, I would recommend a hook system like you mentioned rather than risking having someone hold the mudflaps clear, as that doesn't sound like a safe OSHA maneuver.  On some surfaces, I've occasionally had boards (granted, not as grippy as Lynx or equivalent) kick and fly fore or aft depending on direction of wheel rotation, and have seen gravel fly.  Of course, we've all either been driving the vehicle or gingerly stablizing blocks with another block or risked fingers while someone else drove, but the sight of flying blocks is scary and I sure don't like risking it.  If a hook or a means of somehow quickly detaching mudflaps would work, I'd be all for it.

I have a feeling the 2910 is more crowded in that area than your units.  My water tank and associated hangers prevent moving it further back.  Photos from a 2910 showing otherwise would be helpful.  Thanks.

After we finish dumping we often add a small amount of clean water and some Dawn so it will slosh around while traveling to the next stop. As for additives we have in our almost 20 years of RVing only used adequate water (btw a natural deodorizer) in our tanks with never an odor problem.   Cheers

Without a doubt take the Pictured Rocks boat tour...that is the best way to see it all.  We also did the glass bottom boat tour of the sunken ships which can be seen in the clear cold water.  The wrecks are a Nationally protected area that allows exploring diving but no salvaging/souvenir hunting.  Oh, be sure to tryaCornish pastie.  Cheers

Purely unscientific, but wondering what would be the most popular paint scheme on PC?

My wife and I have several favorites along Lake Michigan.  First is Ludington State Park with three nice camping areas (Beechwood is our favorite), several miles of hiking ranging from a stroll along the river to really hoofing it through the woods, and two beautiful beaches.  Second is Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore with two nice camping areas semi-modern (Platte River) and rustic (D.H. Day), a very nice visitor center, a scenic drive, as well as many many miles of varied hiking trails.  We were there just this past weekend and the wildflowers are barely starting.  Our favorite camping spot on Lake Michigan is third on this list and it's Leelanau State Park which is a very nice rustic campground right where Lake Michigan and Grand Traverse Bay meet.  There are a few miles of trails that take you through the woods but it's mostly a place to enjoy creation's beauty.  The Straits of Mackinac is also a nice area and depending on when you're there you could run into some neat historical demonstrations.  If you get there don't forget the fudge!  If you're running down I-75 Bay City State Recreation area is a worthwhile stop with its semi-modern camping, nature center, bay front beaches, and the Tobico Marsh hiking trails.  Bay City is also home to the USS Edson which is a destroyer located in the bay. It is open daily for tours and is really a neat addition to the Bay City area!

Hope this helps, have a great trip!!

I have good mudflap clearance to the tires as well.

My mudflap issue is only when backing up onto Lynx blocks, the mudflap hangs so low that it gets pinched between the Lynx components and tires.  I like the low hanging mudflaps so I would never consider trimming them shorter so I work around the problem by hand which is not the safest method.  As I mentioned before, to do it right I need to come up with a simple hook system to hold the mudflap up and out of the way when driving up on the leveling blocks.  This way everyone can stand clear.

My rear mudflaps are mounted very differently and have about 6" clearance to the tires.
