JayFlight 23MBH - Shakedown Trip

Hello All,

Tomorrow we are headed out for our first trip in the new 2015 23MBH for a local shakedown trip. Obviously we are going to check out as much as we can, but what are some of the things I should test that might not come to mind easily?

Thanks in advance for your input!

JP

If it moves or operates check it. Get a note pad and keep track of what needs fixed, tightened, or adjusted, or we could have used xxx on this trip and it would have been nice to have xxx. Attack as required

Shake down for you too? If you're new to RV camping, you can probably leave half of what you think you'll need at home. We tend to be of the mind "I might need this..." And "we might need that..." Fight the urge. Trailer shakedowns should really be done within a short distance to a hardware store, to get any emergency items. But really most of use aren't camping on the Serengeti. Most new campers are within 45 minutes of a Walmart, so feel free to leave home 5 of the 8 or so pots and pans, and leave home at least four bottle of hair "product" that the DW or daughter "need."

Have fun. A new unit won't have any major issues. And the minor issues that you do come across can wait till you get back.

Congrats on the new TT!

We survived, enjoyed and are ready to go out again. We found a few very minor issues that I'll probably end up fixing, but nothing major. Thanks for suggestions.
