Short stays RCI Points at Smugglers Notch

We booked a couple of long weekends (2 nights Sun-Mon) for this year at Smuggs. I will probably book a third one today. I emailed the resort and they told me they waived the 1/4 rule for the RCI points exchanges so I do not have to worry about that.
So far we got units 28Z (Sycamores) and 28N (I do not know where it is, the resort is closed, it may be Sycamores as well)
The reservations will be for September, October (not booked yet) and late December.

I understand they might be a cleaning fee of $60. Interesting they first say "will be" than "may be"
"There will be a partial week housekeeping fee for bookings less than 6 nights.
Housekeeping fee for all RCI points reservations: There may be a fee of 60.00 U.S. dollars for 2 Bedroom units, weekly. Cash or Credit is accepted."

I also see a resort fee between 25-60 dollars.

"Resort amenities fee is 25.00 to 65.00 U.S. dollars. Cash or Credit is accepted.
Includes wireless internet and other services. The Resort Fee will be collected upon check-in."

Is this fee prorated if you stay for just 2 nights? Can you avoid it the second/third time if you already have the RFID card? I do not need the resort internet, we will use our cellular data.
Anything else we should know about RCI Points reservations at Smuggs? By the way, I do not see short term discounted stays. Are the discounts generally just for 7 night stays?
