Finally Made It. . .MAIDEN VOYAGE

Well after 8 hours on the road we arrived at River Rim Resort, Concan, TX at around 2:30 this afternoon. It's fantastic. Had pork loin for dinner and am just about to hit the sack for a relatively early night in. Everything thus far is fantastic. The food stayed cold in the fridge runnin' on propane, the A/C cranked right up when we got here, and the pilot light lit up on the water heater. Anything else I can deal with ;-)

It's for faster recovery. If you ever go with teen-agers, you get to appreciate that there's still hot water left when the "old folks" get to use the shower. Guess I could make them wait

1.) The trip was 360 miles
2.) Tried using electric and it flipped a breaker in the camper. . .not real sure why
3.) And the bats I am trying to convince DW to go see. But who knows, may end up going it alone.

We were told when we bought our camper to run the water heater on propane in the summer and electric in the winter. This perplexed my hubby for a few days until he finally figured out that the AC pulls too much juice to run both and saves propane in the winter for heating. Maybe one of you more seasoned RV'rs can tell me if we're on the right track with this theory.

Rice≤--have fun!!
