So, do you mean that you went on your first run and it was a success, or like me, you had many previously unsuccessful trips and this is your first one that was problem free?

Either way - YES, it feels good! Looking forward to another in less than a week.

You?

It was only our 2nd trip. Before the first trip, we found that the refrigerator roof vent was broken, where the PO's pulled the trailer under something. They had also raked off the tv and radio antennas. Had to replace those.

The PO's had also hidden a huge stain on the mattress, so had to replace that.

In the first trip we found that the water pump had a problem. Turned out to be cracked and when city water hooked up, water ran all over the floor. Had to replace that.

Between that trip and this one,

PO's had had a blowout and after that trip we noticed a wheel was sitting at an odd angle. PO's had bent the axle. Had to replace that, and the wheel they bought which was the wrong size.

Their blowout also caused damage to the wheel well area, which now leaked when water hit the side of the trailer. Had to replace that fender and seal all the joints. Then took fender off other side after seeing water on the wheel well inside, and saw that it had never been sealed.

It rained and we found a leak over the bed. There was a tiny slit in the roof where it looked they dragged the trailer under a tree.

On this trip, the only TT casualty we noticed was that we lost the cover to the porch light. Hope it didn't hit a car behind us. We had a problem inside during one move when we had pulled something out of the pantry and didn't put something in its place to keep things tight, and a can fell out and broke the top of the Pur water filter. Only two little things in 2000 miles. I can handle that.

After we got home, and hooked up to electric so we could run a/c while we unloaded (it wasn't hot the whole time we were gone and we came home to 95F - didn't miss Texas at all while we were gone), I had the fridge door open a lot while I grabbed an armful of stuff and took it to the house, and then came back for another load. I noticed the fridge fins were sweating a lot and that the water in the drip tray was going into a drain at the back. But I had never noticed a puddle under the TT before. Asked dh and he said it probably drained under the TT. About 10 minutes later, I noticed a puddle on the floor under the fridge. At first we thought it was because we didn't level when we got home. But no, there was a tube that had never been connected. How in 6 years had this gone unnoticed????

HOLY MOLY - I concede to your worse troubles!

Sounds like we both persevered through a lot.
Hopefully, the worst is behind us.

Oh I don't know about that. Most of our troubles were caused by the PO and while more expensive since we had to pay for the repairs, you had a lot and they came that way on a brand spankin' new trailer.

But here's to good days ahead for both of us.
