The TT couldn't have worked better!!
I was there for 2 days with the kids and the dawg before BF got there. We had some heavy rains one night but it held up just fine!
The igniter on the HW heater doesn't always work but I've become quite skilled at starting it with my long lighter!
We had to dump the black tank once during the trip since we ended up being there for a total of 9 days (I think). A fellow friend and camper helped blow what appeared to be 5 years worth of poo out of it. Ay yi yi! We put the Calgon and detergent in it again along with a tissue digestor and will empty it again this weekend. We had so much fun that BF, the dawg and I will head up again on Friday for a final weekend.
The water quality wasn't that great from the well and the hosts suggest we flush our system when we get home. It wasn't good for drinking and you could smell the high iron content. I wasn't worried about a pressure regulator this trip but probably could've used a filter.
Only a couple things we need for next year for sure:
-stabilizers- getting up off the tires is mandatory. It was quite "bouncy".
-radio- our tuner is broken but I think we can plug something into the auxiliary input- yes?
-an outdoor rug- one big enough to cover the span of the awning. LOTS of grass 'n stuff tracked into the camper required thrice daily sweeping. We did have a small rug outside and inside.
-a TV would be nice, but isn't required. The host of the weekend said he has an antennae "booster" and was able to connect with his Directv. He said it operates on battery or electric and gave me permission to hook up to the electric.
I took a TON of pictures and once I get them uploaded I will post some!
Thank you ALL for your help and advice!!
