My wife and I just spent some time in Yosemite National Park.   The picture below is my favorite view in the park, partially because you can sit here for the better part of the day and hardly hav

I’d rather be far from people, but this is my wife’s choice. School starts this week so it’s a hurrah of sorts before the storm. 

Kathy and I recently did a trip that included Yellowstone and Grand Tetons National Parks along with Jackson WY. and Park City and Salt Lake City UT.  Not a lot of "feet up" pictures because you need

I am embarrassed for you. :P

I know having withdrawals! I usually get 60/80 hrs a month but between business and personal travel April was not a good shop month. Luckily after some yard work this week I should be back in the shop groove.

That was our first trip out in the camper. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Wondering if you had any bugs in your camper that need to be worked out  with it being new and the first time camping with it.  I have tested everything at home and its been just some small things that were a easy fix.  I have been lucky so far.

This made me chuckle as I remembered back to our first trip with a new 5th wheel we had some years back. My friend we were traveling with calls me on the 2way radio and says you have water pouring out of your 5th wheel I'm like WTH...turned out when they built the unit someone forgot to tighten the band clamp around the clean water fill hose and water was sloshing out of the 40 gallon tank and out the back of the camper :o

  Well there was one thing I didn't say .  I was looking around in my camper when I first got it and noticed face frame next to the stove was all scratched up. They forgot to finish installing the stove and the gas line was the only thing holding it in but the water seems to be all good. LOL.

The only issue I had was the microwave. It would not heat up my coffee. The convection oven function worked great, but when using as microwave it just sat there and spun the mug. It seemed to be operating correctly, it just would warm anything up. 

 

Other than that, everything was great.

Microwave? Your camping man!  You heat your coffee on the camp fire!  Microwave?

I agree. Was just checking the equipment. At this point I want it fixed because I paid for it. I will probably never use it.

 I was wondering if you are a member of any RV forums @MattF..I find them quite helpful because working on campers is a hobby in itself. 

Luckily the R-Pod community is very active online. Very active forums and FB groups. I am not a member of any other online communities for RVs.....yet....Always looking for a good. Any suggestions?

RV.net is a large forum with lots of very good info. I can only use it in limited amounts though because it's populated by a very vocal minority of know-it-alls. Not near the level of civility that there is here.

I have to admit it was really nice and much easier to get to from MN then say HI.

I hope you made full use of the attractions there.  Last I heard it was the world's largest open air aquarium.   Pricey, but a really good family vacation spot, got things for all ages.

Absolutely! No kids with but you're never to old for a water slide or 8, I tried them all more than once :)

Just walking the property to see all the pools, beach, aquariums and ponds was awesome as well.
