We took our new 243RBS on our first trip this past weekend. Had all the girls, husbands, and grandkids along as well. We went to KOA Prizer Point CG on Lake Barkley in Western Kentucky. It was a wonderful trip with no major surprises or gotchas at the CG.
Grandkids that fished all caught fish, though none were "skillet ready"! It did rain on Friday night for a bit, but that didn't hurt anything.
I did run 8 people through the shower on Thursday night one right after the other and did not run out of hot water. I did throw the gas switch to help heat water faster. I went outside to check and with the gas on it sounded like a jet about to take off.
Saturday was 80 and sunny and except for the wind a near perfect day. Didn't put the awning out much because of the 20mph gusts.
I also had my Rockwood PUP there as well to handle the overflow. My oldest daughter quipped she was being pushed to economy class. I reminded her that the PUP was sure better than the tent we had used the past 7 years for overflow. At least it has air and heat!
Had a tail wind for half the trip home which greatly improved fuel economy on the return. The return had one glitch.
I had forgotten to out the antenna down. I was about to go under an overpass in Princeton that was 12.1' - then I remembered the antenna. Too late and nowhere to stop or go so under I went. I pulled over, and it was still standing, but bent. I put it down and will check it later. It looked like the damage was only to the wings. The shaft still looked straight from the ground.
Live and learn I reckon.
