Finished first trip

Just got back from a local CG with our 2011 26RLS. This was our madien trip and thus we did not want to go too far till we get used to the trailer. We set it up Thursday afternoon right before our area had some high winds. By high I mean the lake had two ft swells in it. The trailer never moved. Woke up Friday to snow falling, it did not stick but sure was neat to sit inside and watch it fall. Saturday was more the same, high winds until late in the day. We had a small fire going and just chilled even more. Trailer worked great with no major compliants. We did notice that the tank guages must be off. Filled up fresh tank before we left and it said 2/3 full when we got to CG.

We plan on another trip in a few weeks when our work schedules will allow it.

We just completed our first trip in our new Jayco. Minnesota to Savannah and Charleston with stops in Asheville and Gatlinburg. Great trip and Jayco worked perfect. We loved it!

Don't you love to see the snow fall while looking out the big window in the back while being toasty warm inside. That was our favorite part of our New Years' weekend. Enjoy your new rig.

I would guess, the water siphoned out the overflow tube as you drove down the highway.

We life East fo Boise ID and went to a local lake with many CGs near it. It was good to sit inside, nice and warm and watch the snow fall. That sure beat the hell out of tent camping anyday.

Dirtballx2, this is typical Idaho April/May weather. It sure is nice to look out from a nice comfortable chair and watch the snow isn't it?
