3 hours and off for 1st Camping of year

Ready to go camping at Willow State Park (WI). First outing with our SLX 264BHW. Got 3 hrs to think of more stuff could do before leaving, Also keeping an eye of weather as we are in a risk for severe weather later today.
Made an adjustment to Equalizer raising hitch 1 notch, TT now almost perfectly level when hooked up, level shows just a bit more weight to front of TT, truck is basically level also (no rise on front at all, down 1.5" in rear).

Have fun. We love Willow River. Enjoy the walk to the falls and the climb to the overlook. I think we've counted 290 steps or something like that. Are you in the newer sections?

Have a great time in WI. We have a beautiful state, especially the SW corner of the State where the last glacier never got to. Anywhere from where you're going and South is very scenic. Drive the Great River Road. You won't be disappointed.

Trip went well, camp fire each of 3 nights. One big rain that didn't cause any problems. Bit cold, but no bugs! Water pump quit pumping early on, tried several things and finally after talking to Jayco dealer service rep made appointment as looks like the pump failed (ran w/o pumping water, worked sorta okay at home during sanitization though never held any pressure - faucet on and pump would always run instantly with lots of air, then just air)

Also found out that with a 29' trailer campground 300 at Willow River SP can be bit difficult to get around and campsites selection can be interesting. # 318 worked for us, originally had # 351 but narrow blind entrance along with narrow road to turn TV made us decide something easier better.
