First Trip in the TT

Our first two nights camping in our new Cherokee 284BH are in the books! We are rain soaked, tired but very happy over-all. We camped at Camp Wilderness @ Carowinds outside of Charlotte NC. We didn't spend much time riding rides and walking around because of the steady rain. But just the fact that we got some downtime was enough. One disappointment(besides the rain), our awning leaked at a seam right up against the side of the TT. Slow drip, not a stream. But I guess it's going back in to the dealer so they can check it.

Congrats on your first time out! Sounds like a success; even with the rain.

Glad you had a good time in your new Cherokee 284BH even with the rain. Yup, get it back to the dealer to check out your awning leak.

I'm sure y'all shill had fun. My awning does the same thing. I just change the angle of the awning when it rains. The leaking stops. My understanding is that most awnings leak at the seam. Happy Camping.

It could be the metal channel butt joint and not the Soft material. Youroo!!
