Returned from first real Camping Trip 2010

Overall, we love our new TT. We did have a few issues as some of you have read.

This is a list of the troubles and the cost to us.......

pinched the trailer light cord in half that runs between the TT and TV... rewired with crimp conections,
>>>> blew out a couple fuses on my 09 f150 screw $ 10
>>>> battery on TT wouldn't work, service call showed me a reset $65

one of the the four tires went flat, in taking it off bent a sissor jack and stabalizing lock arm beyond use

new tire as screw was too close to side wall for repair >>>> $125
new lock arm pair >>>>>>$69
one remaining sissor jack from other accident in backing into drive.

Had a little issue with rear door not shutting but figured it was due to leveling jack to high in rear put rear in bind.

things that went well/////////

very comfortable accomidations, love the TT
Day 2 they turned on the water back on
got to use the shower
everything worked well
wife baked cornbread and cookies in oven
thanks to Emptypockers suggestions the winterizing was a breeze...thanks Everett!!!

Table Rock State Park was awesome.... super nice camp pads and host and park staff went out of their way to help me several times.....

Awesome weather, great times with family....great way to end the 2010 camping season.
