Just a thought....
I was going to ask that same question, was it turned on. My controllers (two awnings) are in my front driver side compartment and there is an off/on push button plus the speed settings. There is also a reset for my remote controls. Just sayin' Herb.

Aw! So cute. My first dog as a youngster was a Boston Terrier. She was a good dog.

This may be of interest to Tim. Sue and I popped over to Newark Park and House, just a few miles away from our cottage.

The house is Tudor and described as a hunting lodge. It was built by Sir Nicholas Poyntz in 1550 and I suppose it was the then equivalent of what you would now call a deer stand. It stands at the top of the Cotswolds Escarpment near a village called Ozleworth and this is the view to the south.

Subsequent owners of Newark added to and altered the house, turning it into an impressive and comfortable home. It eventually fell into disrepair until it was discovered and saved by a Texan architect named Robert Parsons. The estate is now owned by the National Trust and open to visitors.

It was a beautiful sunny day for a drive in the Cotswolds, concluding with a stop in Dursley for some fish & chips.

Tim, we are not sure of when we will be at Jacobs Lake, but probably 2 nites the 13th and 14th. That makes for one day on the Rim, maybe 2 if we get there early.
Here is where we go:

Sue and Martin, you pop over to some downright nifty digs! My fanciest "hunting lodge" was a trailer that I had to pop up.
Bless those that save the right places for all to see! Alas, my pop up is a mere shadow of itself and now hauls wood for a neighbor in PA. Not available for restoration.

Thirty? My fingers don't squeeze squirt pistol triggers as good as they used to. I figger some duels at close range, some ambushes of ruffians or maybe assassinations of royalty.

I had the same thing happen to an inside dual and just decided to replace both when the inner failed. Gave me peace of mind and I never did have a problem. Before this trip I had all six replaced. $Ouch$!
Wayne, sounds like solid information. Ouch! Each tire has 46,000 miles on them in 5 years of running on the road. Solid tread left on all but as you said, what condition are they really in? Do I trust the remaining tires for 5 miles, 500 miles, 5,000 miles, or 25,000 miles? Fronts have definitely seen their last summer. Thanx Your opinion needed concerning my safety quotient.

We have safely landed at St. George. This is a nice, in city - just off highway, low noise believe it or not, rv park. It'll work for 5 nights and a site seeing base quite nicely.

Have yet to see the pool buts it's on the list. Not as hot as Vegas, but still hot. Another 5,500 feet or so and we should be good!!! Hello Bryce - mutants calling your name!

That's what I heard.
I won't need a set for about 5 years. You are such a prince, Wayne!
