Our first trip had it's mishaps and then it had it's conundrums. Our drive was a mere 4 1/2 hours with little wind for the southwest and all went well, we chose a spot with all the conveniences for our first run so we could check out our systems. Unfortunately our "telephone walk through" failed to educate us as to the refrigerator
lock so we arrived to quite the scene on the camper floor, fortunately I had put a rug down which did a good job of soaking things up! Was an easy fix and now we know how the lock works.
We hooked up the water to the "city" water line and opened up the hot water by pass wherein we experienced excessive dripping (we are talking buckets here although the drain was closed on the same side of the trailer so no hot water for the trip. Closing the hot water bypass off again did stop the leaking so our plumber has that to help him sort it out..
Although we only used the city water port our tanks filled? We were under the impression that having separate fill stations would indicate a bypass of the tanks such as in the Casita
when using only City water hook up? Otherwise why have two ports when one would do the job? Any feedback on this? At any rate we returned home full which seemed to cause quite a bit more sway than the trip out did, not to mention the waste of water which we ultimately had to dump.
We sure wish Chandler would grace us with a manual complete with labeled illustrations to help us sort these things out. Has anybody put a tank bypass in for city camping with a water hook up?
Hikes and cycling were lovely!
PSThanks Brian for the de- winterization details.
