New Owners from Texas gulf coast

We have had our trailer for about 3 weeks, and still have not taken it out. We have it parked behind our house under a hay shed, and have it set up on shore power. We stay in it with our dog and cat on weekends just to get used to all of the features, and to make sure everything is working and we are properly loaded before we take it out for a trip (probably Ruidoso, NM first).

I had an electrical question and found this site through Facebook, and joined up to figure out some minor issues with my trailer.

Obligatory pictures of our setup are attached...

We made our initial trip 2,600 miles from Minnesota to New York and return.
We have had the following happen.
The Dometic 702 fridge went into two flashing LED mode and would not work on Elec or gas. work fine for three weeks plugged into 30 amps in driveway.
Dining room slide mashes gears when at end of extend or close operation.
Although we have the Emerald edition with the Sealy matress went out and added a 3" foam pad. We sleep much better.
We had a great time with our Rocky 2304 DS. We loved the space saving murphy bed.
We (2 adults and 2 doxies) found plenty of room and storage.
This is our first TT and definately would recomend the 2304DS to couples.

We are currently on day 6 of a 7 day stay up in the Texas Hill Country.

We also had the flashy lights on the fridge, but I downloaded the Rockwood manual to my laptop, and pulled it up upon arrival. Said to simply turn fridge off, wait a minute, turn back on. Something about the ammonia splashing around while towing creates bubbles or something, and settles once you stop. Fridge been working great so far.

But the bottom door shelf shattered on me night before last...:-(

The front door rubs at the bottom-side, so it is hard and loud to close. I will sand that edge a little when we get back home.

No other issues, and our first trip has been GREAT!!!

The dog AND the cat have grown accustomed quickly. Luckily we kept them in it for three weekends prior to going camping, so they already feel like it is home.

No complaints for the four of us, plenty of space.

We bought a small trailer so we COULD NOT HAVE any visitors or tagalongs!!! Two humans in a trailer is plenty!
