Nice to have you with us. this is a great group of folks that have tons of "know how, been here done that" experience so don't hesitate to ask for help and chime in if you can do the same. BTW, I had an uncle that had the same TT as you and towed it all over the US for 15 yrs prior to his passing in 1984. He loved it! it sounds like you have yours fixed up with all you need. Hope you have memorable travels
