I checked the posts on this thread but none apply to our 2000 DSDP. The bay lights are all out except for the engine area. I found the fuse for that one so that's not the problem. I do NOT have a...

We have a Weatherpro awning that struggles to retract, and sometimes I have to give it a push with a pole to get it going in. The thing I notice is that the long tube is bowed inward toward the...

Thanks RVTHERE. That corresponds with what a cousin who lives on LI told me. We'll do the GW Bridge. It makes it more expensive because it involves another toll (round trip) on the Throggs Neck...

My first plan was to go across the Narrows bridge but was told that was not the way to go and GW bridge is the way to go. Thought I'd throw that in here for comments. Thanks.

We'll be coming from DC so we'll be on the NJ Tpke. Going to PA or NW NJ seems to be going way out of the way. We used to live in the Hudson Valley and always go up I-81 and across I-84. This will...

Thanks for the tip on used lots, but we aren't really interested in buying a lot. We haven't found that place where we'd go back to every winter. We are kind of obligated to now winter in PSL as...

It doesn't cost $35,000 to get a Dutch Star painted, at least not at Precision Painting. We had our 2000 Dutch Star painted in September and it cost us $13,000. Prices do go up year to year so you...
