Shakedown/Breakdown Trip

My new to me 92 Bounder and I went off on a trial run last Wednesday.

It was a mess. DW didn't understand the message on where to meet me. So she didn't make the trip. I have a list of things I forgot (DW, hat, Pot Shot, extension cord, water hose, and other stuff)

Good news: learned a lot about making multiple lists. got 8 MPG, found out I can run both A/C units at once. Got a few days of quiet time, before the rush of the holiday weekend.
Bad news: Since this is a 34 ft unit, it wont fit in my driveway or even go up the DW's driveway. I need to troubleshoot my fridge. Freezer was fine. Fridge only got down to 50 degrees. and I have the P30 usual issues. GaryRVroamer I need your help on the Hydrovac, or PS whine. Also it appears I have a bad front airbag, left side.

Is coachnet still around? Who uses what for roadside assistance? I have AAA, and AARP. I intend to sign up for FMCA, Escapees, and Good Sam. Any others?

Conclusion: It was fun. Different in a Class A. I'm used to a Teardrop, so the A/C was a big bonus.

When my wife and I purchased our travel trailer last August, our dealer was kind enough to give us a list of supplies we should get. We didn't use Camping World to purchase most of the items, but Amazon.

When we traded in the TT for the Class A, we simply moved stuff over from one to the other.

Glad to hear you aren't posting from the witness protection program after forgetting the DW.

Hi Railhead,
Coach-Net is alive and well. Google Coach-Net. I like Coach-Net better than GS.

Correction!

I must have been tired. I bought a Fleetwood Coronado. I said Bounder, thinking of what a friend once told me. "Bound Brook? Why would anyone go to Bound Brook?
