Update on newbie camping and the 23SS. The dealer installed our new awning (groan), fixed the water pump and sink leaks, and installed another genesis sound panel or system. Awning works and looks great without all of the tear marks. Leaks seem to be stopped. Cd's now play, love the Bluetooth linking feature.
We have about 12 nights under our belts now. Smoke alarms are really sensitive.
. Bacon wrapped jalapeņo poppers are probably a no no in the oven.
We bought a generator and tested it with the AC. Nice Champion from the local Gander Mountain.
It's at the dealer right now, though.
. Couldn't get the fan to start for the air conditioner after we had turned it off. Read the forums, crawled on top of the camper for the next two days every time we needed the AC and started the fan with screwdriver. Waiting on a capacitor?
Fridge was warm when we stopped for lunch on the way home. Battery was either dead or something. They say a breaker? Apparently the propane doesn't even switch if there is no battery at all. Still in a learning phase.
Hope to get it back next week. We got the plates last week woohoo.
Question about the black water tank. We emptied it when we left the campground the first time. When we got to the campground a few weeks later with what should have been an empty tank. It showed full after we leveled and unhooked. !?! We tested with a stick. Lol. And it was empty. Next day it showed a third, after a few uses. Is this normal? Maybe some level got stuck? Fun stuff, learning all of this. I'm glad you are all out there.
Oh did I mention that we got a newer tow vehicle? 2006 f250 4x4 now or an e350 utility van. Whew. Busy few weeks!
Really like Giant City Campground near Makanda, IL.
