Guess I will highjack Vaughn's thread... Anyone ever stay at North Fork Resort in Front Royal VA.

Looking for a good overnight stop in that area and found online. Don't need anything nearby.

We stayed at the Endless Caverns RV in Front Royal, VA... I wonder if it changed its name? Anyway, if it is that one, it was about 10 minutes off of 81, nice clean, on the side of a mountain..

*** On Edit **.

It is not the same one, so as usual I am no help.. :-)

FWIW we've stayed at Endless Caverns a couple times too. But I can see I'm no help either. Lol

Left Baltimore today and heading west. 50-60 mph winds in western Maryland and West Virginia. Rig was rock steady but the first time I can remember having the accelerator floored and doing 50 mph. .......... in a dumpy little campground in Washington , PA south of Pittsburgh but as saying goes, any port in a storm. Headed to MorRyde tomorrow for an appointment on Friday to have the IS checked, bearings packed and change brake pads.

Vaughn,

How many miles have you put on your disk brakes before having to change the pads?

Guy - I'll let you know tomorrow. Just got in to MorRyde and they will be doing service tomorrow. Last time we pulled wheels, the t ch made the comment that I would probably need pads the next time. None of the rotors show any scoring, but I'm going to have them changed tomorrow anyway as we are headed to the mountains. Right now, we've pulled over 30k miles with the discs and IS Suspension.

Vaughan,

How often does MORryde suggest you have the spring rubbers inspected/changed? Cost ?

Joe - they suggest taking a good look at the suspension annually and grease all 1 of the grease fittings while you're down there. If you see any cracks in the rubber, there is a procedure in the manual for testing depth to see if it needs replacement.

I looked the miles up in the truck apps to see how many we've towed it (Sergio asked ). As of yesterday at MorRyde, 36,538. And then we added a few hundred more in the afternoon Lol
My suspension and springs are fine at this point. Not quite 5 years old.

On a different note - my Lord is it cold here in the Midwest !! We are in Lena, IL, upper northwest corner, went down to 14 and windy last night. Supposed to be high of 34 today and back down to 18 tonight. And this is spring ??
