   Thanks for the heads up.  Looking at Cade's Cove it looks great. That's what we look for when it's just my wife and I. With this size group we need full hookups. I'm still pondering bringing the Motorcycles. If I do I will definitely check it out and many other back roads. When not pulling the trailer I typically take the back roads but with a group like this it's more the destination not so much the adventure getting there. Although we do have fun.

I agree that there are multiple English accents.   For example, I used to live in Norwich, and the accent there was subtly different than that of Cromer (25 miles to the north) and Swaffham (20 miles to the west), enough that I could recognize someone's home town just from their speech, and that's just within the county of Norfolk.   However, Britain consists of Scotland (at least, pro tem) and Wales, both of which countries speak their own unique languages.   There are parts of Scotland and Wales where English is just not spoken.   The Welsh linguistically have more in common with the Bretons across the English Channel  -  notice I did not say in France, because a true Breton considers himself Breton first and French second, somewhat like the Galicians and Basques and Catalans in Iberia.   Scotland and Wales are separate and proudly-distinctive countries, not part of England, but they collectively constitute Britain.   Add in the six counties of Northern Ireland (Ulster) and you have the United Kingdom;  however, the Isle of Man (with the world's oldest parliament), and the Channel Islands (originally Norman (i.e. Norse/Viking)) are not even part of the UK, having their own governments and taxations.   Simple!   So, no more "British accent" please!

And now back to our regular programming.   I haven't a clue why he refers to an awning as a brolly.   What a wally (pronounced woll-ey).   Why didn't he just say awning?   Darned foreigners.

And yet, after all that, here in America it's still a British accent!

I didn't ask if he was speaking English, and yes, there is such thing as a British accent. There are actually multiple British accents, because, as in different regions of America, the people of
the varying regions of England speak with very distinct accents and dialects indicative of those regions to which they belong. A good linguist can tell from whence they came by the timbre
in their voice!  Cheesy

ok, since the response to this has been pretty slim, i get the message that we all want to go the campground route, i have the names of 3-4 of them up in the Lake George area, i will continue to see what I can work out with them.  I'll keep everyone posted.

We are going to try and make the Hershey Bus event on June 6th.  they are sending me flyers for this and I will share.

RE the differential temp sender.  You will have to drill and tap a sender hole in the diff housing (below oil level).  The only other option is in the drain plug at the bottom.  If you go that way you will probably knock it off and burn up your diff, not the way to go.  Never seen more than the fill and drain plugs on a heavy rear end.
Simple job to drill and tap, both my buses I went that way.  I also check my diff temp with an IR gun every couple hours when under way.

Just in case the new battery or a new solenoid isn't a permanent solution - I had the same thing happening INTERMITTENTLY a few years ago. Every thing I tried, appeared to fix the problem for maybe 8 - 10 starts. After a new solenoid, starter switch, starter relay, and starter rebuild, I was tracing related wiring and found a spot on the wire that runs from relay to starter, that had wore a tiny spot down to bare wire. When this contacted ground, the starter would run. A little electrician tape, and a few zip ties so it does not come in contact, and the problem went away. It's been good for 3+ years. Good luck!
