Maiden Voyage!

Our maiden voyage was a screaming success! It was hot, but the weather was nice otherwise. We went to Thousand Trails Hershey resort. It was beautiful, and we got a perfect site in the shade, away from the crowds! Two minor issues, but with the kitchen sink. We noticed that our pots and pans were wet when we got them out from under the sink, and the water pressure for this sink only is very low. I don't know if they are related or not but I'll check it out next weekend. My truck on the other hand... I unhooked the safety chains and they were dripping with gear oil. At some point during the ride home my pinion seal decided to give out and dump its fluid. I'm going to replaced the seal, as well as the axle bearings and seals at the same time. (Truck has about 200k miles, never been done, I think they are due). But otherwise, complete success! DW even loved it! (There were some concerns...) Thanks for all of the advice you folks offer all the time!
