I do live in Frederick. Heading to Harrisonburg this weekend. Will most likely see you on the road. Enjoy your outting and let us know how it goes.

Had I left the cabinet shut and flushed my tank, I would have flooded the trailer. Expect what you inspect with your TT. We love ours and hope you have a great first outting. Enjoy......
THANKS "SAILING" I DID CHECK OUT THE ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM TO FIND THE SUB WOOFER CONNECTION WAS LOSE AND THAT WAS BEHIND A DOOR THAT WAS SCREWED SHUT AND YOU CALLED IT MY FLUSH CONNECTION WAS BACK THERE TOO AND IT WAS ONLY FINGER TIGHT. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A BAD SEEN. THANKS AGAIN.

I would hook up the hose before you head out. My check valve had a major leak and would have not been fun to discover at the campground. I also found 4 other leaks from loose fittings.

i would run with some fresh water in the tank as well. in the past (pre 2004). i ran dry. we pulled into a campground in nebraska, went to eat, when we got back, they had lost the well. first and only time i stayed in a full hook up campsite that didn't have water. first time i have stayed in any campground without water.
i've never noticed any change in my fuel usage from carrying fresh water or some water in the waste tanks. when i added a heat pump to the front, didn't see anything there from the additional drag. i weigh 11000 (maybe a little more) dry. that may be one of those things that u know should affect milage and can calculate potential extra fuel usage, but can't actually see it in practice. apparently if is is a very small part of the total weight or wind drag, it isn't noticable.

I have to agree with Jimh. Even if we are going to have hookups we still carry around 1/4 tank of water. My wife uses the bathroom while we are on the road but more than that we just returned from a weekend where we expected to have water hookups, when we arrived at the state park there was a notice at the pay station that the well and water system had tested positive for Ecoli and to boil any water you intended to drink or use bottled water. Thankfully we had some bottled water left over in a side compartment and some water in our tank. We never run completely dry.
