Hello HERmit. My husband and I are also just the two of us with kids out of the house and are beginners. You've got a little jump on us having owned an RV before. Our only experience is in fantasy while we read about others' experiences and in traipsing though RVs at all the RV shows close enough to get to in a day trip.

We're up in Pennsylvania.

You're setup is beautiful.

oooooo lawdy, lemme see now if I can answer these....

Yes, one A/C is in the bedroom and I'm assuming it's connected to the other A/C ductwork, as the reverse is true. We've not yet used only the BR A/C but used the LR A/C and it was blowing through the BR ducts.

(we've not taken a trip yet....it's just a gorgeious yard ornament at this point...picked it up last Friday, takin 'er on the first short trip this Friday)

With the sliders in, yes, I'd say you can use the fridge. If you're askin can you reach in? Yep. Decent space between the fridge door and the island sink with the slider in.

Yep, that *is* a big black tank. Hellifiknow the answer to that question. I'll check with the Captain of this ship when he returns from the golf course and get back with ya.

I am in MS this weekend and am waiting on a certain home depot across from the hotel to open tomorrow before coming home. They have 7 sliding trays in stock that Herk showed me he installed in his trailers pantry. I am going to buy three tomorrow for mine.

Our home depot doesn't have them.

Pantry Slide Out baskets
Those are nice for deep cabinets. Our pantry is *wide* and shallow....well, they're the depth of the Microwave install above them.

I found some neat "canned food stabilizers" at WalMart. They're floppy silicone strips...the width/length of say a regular can off soup and have 'valleys' about a third of the depth of that can lying on its side. You can stack six cans at least two high, on their side, and probably three high. I didn't buy 'em, and just looked through 78 pages of kitchen gadgets on their website...didn't see 'em...going back to get several of 'em today.

I'm learning that those rubber woven look shelf liners are a must! I'm cutting them up to fit the base of anything I don't want moving around....that stand alone paper towel holder has a rubber bottom, but I cut a circle of that shelf liner and put it under it as well.

I wouldn't call the RV we owned a "jump" on camping. It was a hand-me-down from In laws.

While heade up the mountain at Carlsbad Caverns the tranny blew. Stuck in Carlsbad for a week, waiting for a replacement. Next trip out the tranny blew again. Found out the problem....

Ex FIL (God rest his soul) had been working on the radiator before we took it out...unhooked the hose to the tranny cooler and to keep the fluid from draining he plugged the hose with a small stick.

YEP, ya guessed it, he'd forgotten about the stick when he put everything back together. GRRRRRRRR

HE thought it was funny.

We too dreamed and schemed for a *long* time before we bought our new toy. Something just clicked when we walked into this one. We'd been all over their lot that day..hot, sweaty, tired....I walked through this one, looked at DH and said....OK, this is the one....let's go get a salesman.

Took 'er out for her first trip last Friday, to a state park about 30 minutes away.

Happy to report she was *all systems geaux*! No problems at all, except that a coffee maker we bought at wally world was kaput, took it back for exchange and that one was kaput too. grrrrr

And, we had one helluva storm Saturday night..awesome lightning show until we went to bed at midnight....around one AM the entire park lost power. Discovered Sunday morning that a HUGE pine tree blew down across the site about six spaces East of us....thankfully it wasn't an occupied space...tree went down right across the picnic table.

Thankfully the storm brought in a cool front so we weren't sweatin' all night.

LOL, both of us weren't in the mood to go back to work yesterday....

like that commercial I detest

"I want more"!

Glad to hear your trailer did well on it's initial outing, even though Mother Nature could have been more cooperative.

That sure was a storm system. My gutters at the house got clogged up, so there I was on the roof during the storm, clearing them out.

I also now have part of my driveway in my front yard, as much sand got washed down. Won't have to worry about mowing that part for a long time.

One of my employees lost part of their roof, and another one had a lightning strike close enough to fry some of his electronics in his house.

I saw several trees down as I drove to work yesterday, and Entergy trucks running all over the place.

No matter what, we were fortunate though....and didn't get nothing as severe as our fellow RV'ers in Oklahoma.
