Shakedown Cruise in 8311WS

Howdy all! Just purchased a Rockwood Signature 8311WS. Picked it up Monday and will be taking it for the initial "shakedown cruise" this weekend at the local State Park. Huntsville SP is about 30 miles or so from the house so I figured it would be perfect for an initial trip. This is the first TT we have ever bought, so I'm sure everything will go perfectly!

I've been lurking here for a while, absorbing as much info as I can. Just joined yesterday so I can post (and ask questions!)

Thanks y'all! It has been a great weekend.
Just about to eat breakfast and then start the process of getting out of here to head home.

No troubles found with the trailer, everything has worked as it should.

I'm particularly impressed with the air conditioners! I have two 15K units and even in 100 degree temps the camper was very comfortable! In fact it was down right cold after the sun went down. I loved it, DW....not so much. She had to grab extra blankets.

The only drawback is there are only 2 AC vents in the bunk room. It got a little warm during the heat of the day. I'll fix that with some window coverings in that slide out.
