1400 mile shake-down cruise
I thought it was about time I reported on our shake down cruise. Instead of checking in at a nearby KOA, we decided to take the tt to Tulsa, OK for a visit with our son and grandsons. The P-trap isssue was taken care of and nothing else seemed to be leaking, so we decided to go for it.
We hitched up in the snow which was a new experience, but typical of spring snow storms around here it was hit and miss and it wasn't far before the roads were dry, but it was VERY windy. We fought the wind all the way to Dodge City KS, but it towed very well and was much easier to control than previous rigs. We went on to Tulsa the next day with less wind to battle. Spent 4 days parked in our son's yard, then headed home. The wind was even worse on the way back.
The fan in the bathroom lost a motor during the trip, but everything else worked great. Ventline sent us a new motor, no questions asked, which Doug has already installed since the dealer is 150 miles away. Great service!
All in all it was a great trip and we are eager to get out again. As for the cat, she stayed at home and getting her used to the tt is a work in progress.
Thank goodness spring is finally here and happy camping!
Doug and Cheri
