To Theberries, that was a pretty scary fuel station, I bet they have a lot of RV accidents there. Lots of metal fencing too close to the driving area and a low awning over the pumps. I bet you are a lot more picky about where you attempt to fuel at now than you were as a newbie. I know I am.

That's a good idea for the Textronics, get that moho out and do some serious practicing in it before they take it. I'm sure it will all work out well for you in the end!

Kind of late for you now with no motorhome, but it's still possible to go to the Balloon Festival this year. They do drive-ups for $35 a night on a space available basis. For anyone interested, email jgarcia@balloonfiesta.com, or call 1-505-821-1000. It starts on September 30th. We're going this year!

Taking it out and figuring how to make turns is a really good idea. I hope we've learned through our mistakes.
First I'm sorry for your loss of your mother... Second,,, NOBODY is a perfect driver... Things can happen to anybody..... I have a smaller scratch on the front fender of my first ever brand new vehicle , my 2015 Silverado. This was done the first time I backed our 5vr in the driveway by forgetting about the stupid mail box... (yes I now hate the mail box) To make that worse, I have driven a semi freight truck for almost 19 years, overall a trucker for almost 37 years... I felt really stupid,,, BUT things happen... Learn from it and move on.... My excuse is I'm getting old.... )

It's the only accident we've had since buying the coach in 2007. No we did not take a Drivers Ed course

Hang in there. Combining your first long trip with a funeral may have been just too much to think about.
Sorry about your woes!

There's very little that duct tape and superglue can't fix, but for my RV I carry a full roll of eternabond roof repair tape. That stuff is almost as good as the 200 MPH NASCAR tape.

Happy RVing.
