Our first RV for us and the muttlies

This January we purchased a 2000 Coachman Mirada. It sat out in a field for years and only has 24,000 miles on it. I've been working on getting it road worthy. I've replaced the original tires, a leaking water heater and the fresh water pump. Also installed a railing for the inside entry steps and removed the TV from the dash. A flat screen TV is now on a cabinet behind the passenger seat. The cabinet also has a fake fireplace in it.
I think everything is now working. We just took the RV to Florida for a week to visit relatives. Everything went fine until a palm tree attacked the back bumper at the camp ground and the water line to the toilet burst. I replaced the bad line there. Since getting home I've fixed the bumper and installed a nice backup camera.
Hopefully things go better now.

A very successful trip overall. Back up camera good, spotter plus back up camera even better.

You have to watch out for those trees. They have a bad habit of attacking.
