Shakedown trip

So with over 5,000 miles logged on just the outbound leg of my trip, I have had a few rather interesting failures and fixes.

Yesterday we slept in the campground just inside the Arctic Circle in Alaska. That highway is by far one of the roughest stretches of road I have traveled since leaving the Army. While on that road, the stairs decided to not retract anymore, then they started working miles later, and the lower hinge mount on the fridge broke. I had to do my best Macguyver work to keep from losing all our food while the gorilla glue set up overnight.

On a positive note, the cab map lights are now working.
