Made our 1st trip

After working on a lot of little things on the MH we finally got out and camped for a few nights. Amazingly I backed into the spot and was level without any work, dropped the jacks, hooked everything up. Easy Peezie. Even have wifi and TV over our antenna.
I towed the CRV with the newly installed tow bar, didn't know it was back there.
We didn't get away without some issues, the furnace you were either sweating or freezing. The camp ground had a water leak so they cut the water for 4-5 hours with notice so I was going to fill the water tank, switched over and after a couple minutes I went inside to check progress. The 1/2 bath and area at the bed( where the water tank is ) had puddles of water. I ran out cut the water, dried everything out.
When the water came back on I switched back to shore water and no inside leaks but some drips behind the water control panel, just a steady drip.
It rained most of the night, but we'd had the slides out at home in the rain and only had a few little areas that were wet( with way more rain level both times)
Drove home in the rain, and found water on the floors front to back, more than condensation.
In talking to the maintenance guy he said they have as much as 100 PSI water pressure( and me without a regulator) I hope that I just blew some seals rather than anything serious.

MTHook, I just had partial knee replacement 7 days ago, somor coach will st sort a while which is too bad n some ways and ok in others as I don't have to deal with an issues while the unit sits in my driveway. I keep finding things I want to do which is no different than our old T or 5th wheel (still for sale). We hope to get back out soon. Good luck wth the back surgery - my wife has had several with mediocre results.

While it's parked in the driveway, "party like your dying" till the next trip! It's my "Great Escape" from the home chores...I play like I'm a million miles from nowhere. I actually play the Cat Stevens song..."Miles From Nowhere"...recorded the year I graduated from High School.

If you make it to HH and decide to try another location in the area cross
the river on I-95 South to hi-way 204, turn right 3/4 mile and stay at the all new Creekfire Motor Ranch.
They have a great set up there.
