Heading out for my shakedown cruise.

Heading to San Diego area for 6 days with my new Georgetown.
The only thing I have learned is that the 4 door refrigerator takes a lot longer to cool down than my little one I had in my 5th wheel.

Weather should be great 55 at night and 75-77 during the day and sun, sun, sun.. Yah

Thanks all for your good wishes.
I have a list of things to take and have gone over it twice.
I'm 99.9% I can handle any of the small issues.
We will take pictures and my DW will be in the right seat so I'm sure I will get a few lesson is driving this 37.5 ft rig weighing some where around 24,000 lbs. LOL

The 700 mile trip did very well. The Georgetown drove better than expected and averaged around 8 mpg without towing anything but did have head wind, side wind and not much tail wind.

I did find out that my RCA DVD surround sound cheapy system didn't read any DVD so that was added to my list.
I also found out my main sewer gate valve leaks and my DW found a crack in one of the pull out draws facier under the sink.

Everything checked out ok. AC units, fans, fireplace, washer/dryer, shower, microwave, TV.Ran my electric hot water heater and never ran out of hot water and I tried too when I took my looooong hot shower.
The autolevelers had to be tweaked a little but that is expected. I just zeroed it out bt the instructions. Works great.

So all in all not a bad trip
