After the trials and tribulations over my first year, I have to say the coach is operating darn near perfect. I hate to write this as something is sure to go wrong tomorrow.

I had her washed and waxed yesterday along w/the toad and I am stylin'. She looks great and I am not working on anything. Passerby's are complimentary and we are looking at 70's and sunny for next 5 days or so.

Only new thing that popped up was the passenger power shade stopped working while driving. I'll write up a question in another topic. Doc - I didn't get mad as promised after my false alarm on the slide out. We just tied it 2/3rds of the way up w/twist ties and I'll deal with it later unless I get the urge here at Fort Wilderness.

My additions in advance of this trip, Blue Ox Tow Bar and all the fixins, BrakeBuddy and Pressure Pro all worked great coming down.

Just need to relocate the repeater on Pressure Pro by hooking into 12 volt in the bathroom fuse closet. That said I still get updates on the toad's tires every 15 minutes or so when they do connect.

Anyway, happy camper here. Kids are happy, worn out and napping right now. Getting ready to grill some steaks, enjoy some wine and see the fireworks this evening.

The coach is "humming"? I assume it's a happy coach and it's either humming the Mickey Mouse Theme Song or Zipadee Do Da.
