First some pics at the dealership, then at home, them the inside with the slide out.

Everything went great until we hooked up and kept blowing fuses on the running lights. So while Fab and I went to go get some lunch, they called in the experts. That put us about an hour and a half back so we got to sit in rush hour traffic, a small price to pay. Thats why it took a little while to post. More to come, I'm off to bed.(only two more days at UPS, then I can stay up with my wife)

Hey guys-
It's Deb. Rod asked me to fill everybody in while he went out to close things up. 1st I am supposed to tell Sean that he asked about your landing gear and the tech said that you aren't supposed to fully extend the gear either up OR down. I guess it burns up the motor or blows the fuse or something. It's a torpedo fuse in the front storage area. (Is any of this making sense?) Sorry for the choppy info, Rod will have to expand further later on this...it has been a looonnnggg day.

Ok- I'm not sure it's me you want to talk to, but I can try and answer any questions (since, you know, Sleeping Beauty is off for the night).

,
Deb

OK- here goes: TravelOn was great (I think Rod would say that anyway). He didn't mention any issues with towing. Fattie- we loved the area. We ate lunch at Janet's (very yummy)...if we would have known we would be sitting around for a couple of hours we could have tried to hook up.

Deb I happy as a pig in Shi&* for you too. I bet it was a long day for you. Glad your home safe and sound. That thing sure looks nice and shinny. Time to wax it now.

Don

Oh Deb:

Flaber-giggy-ma-wash...BOTH of you are the proud parents!! Ya done good!

I don't want this to take up your good fortunes, but that explanation about the landing gear is just about the biggest BS story I've ever heard (not to fault you 'guys')...if they give you 18", it should work 18". Must be more to the story...FabRod can maybe blurp further (I think I can get thru the typos!)

Wow...how do you 'guys' feel? Happy? Elated? "Out-of-this world"?
Rig looks great on what I thought was going to be a challenge...but all good, ey?

Sean
