Thanks Michael, I wish you lived closer also, I have had dreams of seeing that big F450 Platinum hooked to my Montana since you bought it!

Ron, we are across from Peoria, right on the Illinois River. There are still a few white bass in the Illinois, but the flying carp have taken over.

With weather extremes becoming more and more frequent I may have to reconsider staying at this CG for our extended summer stays. We were even planning on winter storing there but this whole river flooding issue may start happening more frequently. With the 6 locks upstream from us on the Illinois River you would always have at least several days notice of a major flood, but being 1300+ miles away would still be inconvenient to have to come back just to move the Montana.

Hi all,
I am very new to RVing and going by what folks are saying here, it sounds like Keystone is going in the wrong direction. I just posted in the general discussion section about what I found in my 3711FL, while investigating a water leak. The amount of garbage,ends of pull rivets,scrap tubing,sawdust,scraps of flooring and even three steel plugs just lying in the bottom. And the way all the wiring and water lines were run is very disappointing. I'm an old school mechanic,and in the day,if we left a mess like that,we were looking for a new job! I hope this does not offend anyone but my wife and I say this all the time when we make a purchase and find what's wrong. Personal pride in workmanship is almost gone in not only this country but everywhere. I could never and would never leave a mess like they did in my rig,how sad. I'm now very thankful my Dad taught me to be a mechanic and do a job right. He always told me two things " do the job right or not at all" and "it doesn't take any longer to do it right".

I believe we went to the same school and our dads must have been classmates. Safety has always been job #1 as well.
