325MKS shakedown trip

We bought our 5ver in late Sept and took it out for a close by State Park for a 4 night trip. The trailer did well.I need to stabilize better but that should be no problem with the threads I have read on that topic.
The only issues were the sink line to the grey tank came out and leaked sink water into the under belly and onto the ground. It took 3 days for it to start leaking from the underbelly onto the ground to be noticed. The front burner on the stove had the flame coming out before the burner.
I just picked it up from the dealer and dropped for storage yesterday. We tried everything out and all is well. I consider myself lucky with these 2 small issues after reading some of the horror stories on here.
We bought the trailer at the start of the off season and when the 14's were coming out. The plan paid off and we got a great deal.
No regrets buying this Chaparral 325MKS as of right now. We'll see how it does in the spring on her maiden voyage.

God bless

Great going. It's always good when things work as designed. My little TT has had zero problems ever. I think it's kind of a case of bigger units have more to go wrong, therefor a greater likelihood something will. So with only two small "fix-its", you have every reason to be pleased.
