      Outandaboutsue 2 minutes ago We love our older 2006 itasca—want to let you know that some parks have age restrictions on rv’s; some won’t take older than 10 years or 15 years.  Some require photos of all sides to see condition before letting  you stay.

      The Queen and I 3 hours ago We avoid I-95 (even in just a car). It depends on time of day (and luck), but the whole Washington DC area can be a parking lot. Fuel will probably be expensive in NJ and NY, and then there are the tolls. (That’s not to say you won’t spend as much going a...  more

      Ray Zimmermann 8 hours ago If you go to the RVillage home page, you should see a map that shows other members around your location.  (At least it displays that way on a PC, not sure how it works on a phone or other device.)

        Mike and Donna Wagner 4 hours ago The map works on all devices Ray - it's minimized so it requires the user to click on the blue link that reads "Show Explorer Map". The map can also show RV Parks, and friends, and other RVillagers, and do lots of fun things. ~Donna

      Tim & Crista Tue at 2:24 PM There is a lot of information on YouTube regarding Schwintek Room Slide Systems (troubleshooting) I don’t think that will help finding your control box but it may help you in realigning the slide out and bringing it back to zero.
