...2006 Dutchmen, Class C, 26', and have been living in it for about 3 months now. I really love it, except when something goes wrong.
After my first dry-camping experience, this past Saturday through Wednesday, I suspect what's "gone wrong" is my expectations of house-battery life, fresh-water usage, etc. I just need to recalibrate my expectations -- scale them down to fit what is, instead of what I had hoped it would be.
I've also taken the giant leap into having a "toad," trading my 2006 Honda Element in on a 2012 Smart Car and having the car and the RV soldered together -- not quite, but you know what I mean.
Talk about jumping off the deep end! I have a long way to go to get used to driving not only the RV (Moby Jane, the Great White Whale) but now with a toad, however "smart" said toad may be....Whew!
My thanks for everyone's help and advice!
Now, the side mirrors on the RV can only be adjusted manually from the outside, which turns out to be a giant pain. What is possible/would work better: having side-view cameras installed or having side mirrors adjustable from the inside? I don't know if it's even possible to retrofit an E450 chassis with electrically adjustable mirrors.
