First Night with Georgette

Last night we went camping at the Weeks Driveway Campground.

Because the anticipation was high, followed by a high level of excitement, sleep was minimal.  However, the primary goal was to take a trial run before heading off to a public campground.  Spending the night with Georgette allowed us to learn more about her and we learned a lot.

One thing I learned is that the learning curve to RV ownership is bigger than I thought.  The dealership was good at going thru everything with us, but I needed to just get in there and go through everything myself.

We also made some discoveries that will require a trip back the dealership to repair some warranty items.  For example, getting the gray water tank cap fixed.

We, or should I say hubby, learned the importance of making sure all the caps are on the tanks before use.  I think he would agree that it’s especially important on the black tank.  I had no idea what happened, but Naomi came in to tell me that daddy opened the door and “Whoosh” lots of water came pouring out.  Yuck!!!  (For those who may not know, the black tank is toilet waste.)

Lili quickly claimed the top bunk and Naomi the bottom.  They have curtains that help block out some of the sound and light in the RV.  FS1 has the pull down bunk above the cab, but no curtain.  I don’t really sew, but I need to come up with curtains or something that blocks out the noise and light for him as well.

We’ll likely need a few camping weekends to gain a real comfort with Georgette, but there is great potential for a lot of fun times ahead!!
