Shake down camping trip

We just got back from our shake down week camping in our 832IKBS Flag Staff. We used it all-fresh water, hot water, even took showers. Here in Illinois weather can be crazy in May the first few nights we ran the furnace by the end of the week we was running the AC in the day time. I can truly say our first week camping with our 832IKBS unit was trouble free and enjoyable A few things we forgot but that was not our Flagstaff fault. At one time we had 3 couples in the camper, we served food and drinks to everyone we moved free about while serving. Just side note I bought a portable ice make which worked great, we had all the ice we needed.

Congrats on your successful first week of camping! You need to post some pictures. Our 832IKBS is on order and we hope to have it by the first week in June. That will hopefully give us a month to get ready for our first week out in the Smokies. What is your tow vehicle, what hitch are you using and how does it tow?

Glad to hear some positive stuff. We've had one of those portable ice makers for years. I love that thing. Mainly use it for keeping ice chests loaded for keeping fish on ice.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.
