Well, it finally quit raining long enough to take our maiden voyage. Went to a campground up near Beavers Bend State park in OK. Which was closed btw.
It was a pretty flat road and my TV pulled pretty good. No issues with getting passed by semis in either direction.
I was expecting a bit better gas mileage,
I got less than 8 mpg and that is not good. We bought this to be able to take to IL when we go back to visit, but at that rate it would cost about $600 in gas alone.
As well, I think I am going to have a bit of hard time towing up the MO hills.
I will probably be looking for a different TV so any suggestions to what can get at least 12 mpg with enough power to pull 8k lbs with ease, I am all ears.
The park was basically all full timers, so there was very little interaction as they pretty much stayed to themselves.
Question, how early is too early to start up the air compressor on a Sunday morning? I waited til 8 because I saw no one moving, but would have liked to start it at 7.
The only issues we had were right off the bat, power tongue lift didn't work and once I found the fuse...of course I did not have that size. The nice park owner took me to the store a couple miles away and got me going.
The biggest issue we have is that you cannot hear the TV with the AC going (which was 90% of the time).
When I connected the TV to the AUX in, the overhead speakers would not work. The outside would though, so I know at least I am getting a signal there.
When playing a DVD, the speakers worked but are so weak. Why would they not spend a couple extra $ and install something worthwhile.
Sounds like my first warranty issue to me.
Any suggestions on the sound? Do I need to upgrade?
The dogs, also on their first camping trip, did pretty good, but new scenery and situations had them off schedule as well. There was little area for them to go.
One other thing comes to mind...why were there plastic bags over some of the faucets? Some of the full timers had a bucket over theirs, while others were just in the open
Overall, it was a pretty good first time ever trip for us.
Thanks for listening!
