First Time Out!

DW and I spent our first night of "real" camping (not in the driveway) this weekend at a local city park. We had a great time. No problems with the TT.
The only thing I managed to break was the small plastic latch that holds the rear storage compartment door open. I managed to do this by leaving the rear storage door held in the open position by the latch when I opened up the rear slide. I'm happy that only the latch was broken when the slide forced the storage door shut. I don't think that I am going to replace the latch because I want to avoid the same scenario from happening again, and, if I had been closing the slide (instead of opening it) with the storage door latched open the resulting damage would have been much worst. So, I figure if the latch is broken then I won't be able to make the same silly mistake all over again.
P.S. We love our new TT!

Always believe that you will ultimately succeed at whatever you do, and never forget the value of persistence, discipline, and determination.

Awesome! We claim that my wife or I are always outside watching the slides as we extend them and ready to yell if anything happens- but realistically, that only happens some to most of the time. Glad it was just a small thing.
