Thanks for the reply. i enjoyed reading it and tip my hat to you. Your solo traveling is a testament to the safe, comfortable, friendly and helpful culture that exists within the camping community. Congrats also on mastering backing into the camp site!
DW and her 5 friends arrived home safely tonight after having a fantastic weekend. It definitely was an adventure for them and "Rooby" too.
The front right stabilizer jack got bent when they were hitching the camper for the trip home. (A friendly camper helped bend it back in place and out of the way so it could be raised for the trip home.). this is a very minor thing and will be a quick repair and a simple list reflecting the order to disconnect and reconnect will help prevent this from occurring again..
The plastic brakeaway key/cable was hanging freely from the brakeaway box when she pulled up to the house. DW said the trailer pulled fine all of the way home which really concerns me. I don't understand why the brakes on the trailer weren't locked up, smelling like burnt rubber or smoking. I would have expected some type of physical difference in the towing and some visual and other sensory clues. Something definitely is not working the way that it should.
Our new Dometic Elite Slide Topper is now sporting a blue streak on the metal cover courtesy of something blue that jumped out and rubbed against it. Fortunately, the slide cover works fine and the metal cover protected the vinyl portion of the cover so no permanent damage was experienced.
One of the white plastic "plugs" that are used to plug in the tent fan/light appears to have suffered a wound by one of the DD's during the previous outing as it was hanging by the wires when the women arrived at the site.
And, lastly, the wood panel in the fridge door slid down again and snapped the battery disconnect button cleanly into two pieces. (this is the second time this happened with this new camper.)
Again, the women had a great time and these very minor things have been imprinted in their memories as part of this adventure with friends. They are already planning their next trip.
I will be off to the dealer tomorrow night to get these minor things resolved.
