Yes we went camping tuns out only the rear slide was not working. The kids were still able to sleep in there. The motor is in the back under the slide. The shop put it back together for me to take camping.

Good to hear!

How many people go through all the systems before any trip to make sure everything is working properly. I don`t know how many times I`ve seen people messing around with things because they are not working. do people just throw their stuff in the trailer, hitch up and head out?

note this is not directed towards the OP!

Sounds like OP was lucky enough to catch the issue before launch so at least it was not a panic upon arrival at the CG.

I believe most of us go through many of the systems just getting ready to go. I can't pack the trailer with the slide in - only my kids are skinny enough to get into the bathroom and I believe it is not advisable to walk on the slider floor when it is in.

That said, there is always going to be something goes egg shaped on a trip - we stayed at a Hyatt last weekend (no CG convenient enough to our destination) and had to rush back to the hotel on Saturday to evacuate our pooches because there was a gas leak. The rest of the trip was stellar so just gotta take the bad with the good.

I wonder, has anyone ever used the tent and air mattress when the RV is suddenly out of service? I have that as a plan rather than lose the deposit.
