Nice trip, Mark! You make great use of that thing.
If you fine yourself going south of NYC let me know. I'm 30 miles north of Atlantic City.

Mac, that's a good point. When "Pete's" rotated the tires from front to back, they turned the tires around. Even thought they stayed on the same side, they are now, in a sense, rolling backwards from their original position.
Apparently, Michelin has no problem with reversing the tires. The guy at 'Pete's' wanted the date codes to be on the outside. Most of the dates codes are around '4306'. Now that the tires are turned around, the sun can hit the new side. LOL!
I keep 303 protectant on the tires so I have no cracking as of yet.

I've dropped our host a line about this so it should be gone soon.

What happened that you needed to contact a host?
Anyway, we're continuing our New England trip and are now ensconced in New Hampshire and it's SO nice to be in cooler weather. We're approaching 45,000 miles on the coach and everything is going fine.
I had to replace my electric cable connecting the lights from the coach to the toad and couldn't find anyone locally to repair or replace the cord. So, I called the company in Oregon that originally installed the towing system and they shipped me a new cord the next day by UPS. Now, we're good!
The New England area is beautiful. The floods seem to be south of where we are and we'll continue to Maine in the next couple of days which is our final destination before we head back to TN.
It's amazing to see the trees are starting to change. We notice it starting in upstate NY at the end of August. Our trees don't start changing until October in TN.... so we might see a little of the beautiful fall colors before we head back.

Hey Mac, What happened that you needed to contact a host?
Just some spam. Our hosts are good about dealing with that stuff.
How did the connecting cord get damaged? Under normal circumstances there shouldn't really be much stress on it.
Sounds like you're continuing to get good value from your investment.
Too many RVs sit parked for 48-50 weeks of the year.

Nice deal there. It is beautiful up there. I have a brother in Maine and a brother who's not really a brother (a friend that's close enough to be a brother) in New Hampshire. I love that whole area.

The constant use of connecting and disconnecting the cords over 44,000 miles and 4.5 years have taken their toll. The metal housing around the connector that connected to the front of the Honda broke. So, we're good for a while with the new cord/connector.
I wouldn't want a motorhome that just sits, what a waste. We just saw George H. W. Bush's home in Kennebunkport, ME,....from a distance. Nice digs.

Your relatives/friends live in a beautiful area. We are on an architectural tour seeing seen at least 10-12 houses along the way. A Frank Lloyd Wright house (Martin Estate) and the George Eastman (Eastman/Kodak) houses in Rochester, NY. We're planing to see 'Falling Water', a Frank Lloyd Wright design near Pittsburg on the way back.
While in PA, we saw four duPont mansions.. (Winterthur, Longwood, Nemours and Hagley mansions). We also saw Monticello and Montpelier in Charlottesville, VA, and a couple of old plantations in Williamsburg. Great places!
