Here is a little pictorial run through of Sugar Shores in Durand, IL.
The entrance to Sugar Shores The main buildings and pool area
The work shop and tool shed The pavilion
Miniature golf, the wife loves the Penguins.
Frog Pond, quiet now, give it a month! River view with lots to the right
Nice lots One of many for sale
Phase II, a lot of lots for sale Right before I put up the awnings
I took many more pictures but you get the gist of the place from these I think.
The trip went very well, the salesman gave his best pitch and of course we had to turn him down for now but believe me when I tell you if we could have bought a lot we would have. Prices were anywhere from $10,900.00 and up but who knows maybe in a few years we’ll be able to give it some serious thought.
While packing everything up and dumping the tanks I discovered our expensive Rhino sewer hose started leaking from one of the couplings while dumping the gray tank. Um, really, $60.00 sewer hose less than a year old and suddenly it leaks?!? So I run clear water through the hose and drain it real good, go into the rig and break out the petroleum jelly and after drying the rubber gaskets, I give them a coating and wipe them down. I put them back together and let it rip and no more leaks, this stuff is as useful as duct tape!!
Speaking of which, remember when I said during our last trip the toilet bowl wouldn’t hold water? Ever since I cleaned the seal and used petroleum jelly on the seal and it has been working perfectly since. Considering everything, a successful weekend we think! We dropped the rig off at Collier and saw another rig was just parked there and their slide topper was ruined, I should have taken a picture, the damage to theirs was significant for both the front and rear slides. Considering the wind we have been having lately it’s no wonder!
The rig is now back in line waiting for the parts to come in. We’re not sure when we’ll be going back out but we’re going to shoot for some time in May. That’s all for now! Have a great week everybody!
