Thanks for asking. It went very well.
I had an issue getting the trailer hitched in the morning due to the battery being dead. I put a jump box on it and was able to get it done. I have to learn how to manually crank the tongue up and down. I also need to install a battery cut off switch so the CO2 detector doesn't drain it while its in storage.
I filled the fresh water tank at my house and hauled it 30 minutes north to the track. I was there early enough to pull into a spot and not have to back in. Thank God.
Setup went very smoothly. No issues at all.
We conserved our water usage, arrived Friday evening and by Saturday Sunday morning we were out of water and no RV water was coming around on Sunday. I have a plan in place to bring a few 7 gallon blue water jugs from Walmart as backup or standby should this happen in the future.
We ran the furnace for heat on Friday night as it was a little chilly. We ran the AC on Sunday as it was hot and humid. We also left our dog in the trailer while we attended the race with the TV and AC on and he was great.
I purchased and ran a Honda EU2000i companion most of the weekend and the 2nd eu2000i in parallel when the AC was needed. They ran great, very quiet and efficient and cool to put away after running. Well worth the investment.
Our black and grey filled to about 2/3, the dirt bag next to me dumped alongside his camper but I wouldn't do it so we dumped at the Flying J. We had 1 issue when dumping, my black tank valve was open or worked itself open, not sure. I asked the guy behind me for help as it was my first time. I closed the valve and opened the cap to attach the hose and well...... I got a handful. It wasn't pleasant. Attached the hose, paid my fee, entered my code and successfully dumped the black then grey tank, rinsed up and rolled out.
Brought her back home, unpacked and cleaned her up, and put her away until the next adventure. Our maiden voyage was a success and I loved every minute of it.
We even used the dinette as a bed for a friend that attended one evening. The 23RB is the perfect first TT for me, my wife, and our 4 year old Yorkie.
The next day we renewed out tickets and camping for next year, the 100th running of the Indy 500. We also secured our tickets for the Brickyard 400 this year, no camping though as I will be busy the Friday and Saturday before.
Thank you all for the great information, it was very helpful. I am glad to have my maiden out of the way.
