After many days of mods, changes and upgrades.. we're finally off to our first camping trip in the new RV. We are going to be no longer virgins 😆

Well... only two fix it things. I had a small leak in one of the pipes only if we used the outside shower (hot). Caught it very quickly.

And the mixer for the main shower doesn't work properly so we can only luke warm/cold shower :(. Not nice at all even in hot weather 37c.

The outside shower problem is an easy fix .. just needs a new pipe clamp .. that's all.

The main shower... I'll have to open the controller and see what's going on. It's one of those all in one controllers, where you turn lever to the right fully and it should be hot only and cold when you initially start turning it and gradually should mix cold with hot. But all we get is cold and only the VERY slightest heat.

ANYONE know what this could be?

BTW. . We had a lovely time. Except me trying to back in. The site was the worst site that a newbie could ask for. At an angle and a huge incline and then to a level. I did get help with a fellow camper and he helped guide me in, I was holding up so much traffic.

I felt like a loser! :(

Apart from that .. everything went great!

Don't worry about the problems. It's under warranty! Make the dealer fix it!

Don't worry, now that you have the first one under your belt. The next one will be easier, and more fun .

Why?? Nobody should be in a hurry. Camping should be more relaxed and an escape from the rat-race. Besides, watching someone struggle backing in is almost entertaining.

It's better to take your time and see people laugh at you then to hit a post or something, put a big dent in the side of that new shiney new RV, and watch eveyone watch you cry.

Oh yeah, a grown man crying about the damage he just did to his new RV is something that is just to painful to watch ...

Without LMAO!!!

Of course, I can laugh because I've done it.

Yeah I know you're right. I'm dreading the day I put a dent in any of my vehicles including my RV. And yes, I probably would start crying lol.

Oh you're so heartless and mean! Lol
I would probably LMAO the same after empathising with the driver and reliving the experience with him!

Yeah, nothing hurts, and then brings laughter, like learning from my mistakes.
