I technically do but it has not yet followed me home. It's at P&S Helena OH getting a few minor tweaks done and I have yet to tow it.
SO.....I'm running around, buying mirrors, the PP hitch, the brake controller, getting the title transferred, paying the $#@$ tax on it, purchasing the plates....does the list never end? I MIGHT be able to go get it Sunday.....so right now I have all the bills and no A/S sitting in the yard as yet!

Home At Last!

I thought she was ready....but we were delayed.
The fine folks at P&S completed the changes I asked for and tested all systems...to find out that there was a short in the electrical system. Three hours later, they find that a replacement rivet in the rear had hit a wire. So they fixed that and went back to testing system to find that the AC didn't work-kaput! Then the replacement was duly ordered, arrived, and installed. I got the call; she's ready to pick up on Memorial Day!

I headed over (about a two hour drive) and had already planned a return trip on state routes. I didn't want to get out on the turnpike for my first drive out. This is my first RV AND my first AS. My son Tim lives less than a mile from P&S so it was a slice of pie to hook up with just the ball on his Dodge Ram and tow to his driveway--where the ProPride hitch was waiting to be installed to my Jeep Commander.

It was raining off and on but we got it done. I'm glad that I'm familiar with every part and bolt in the hitch as it looks good (later pulled well) but I don't really have it "dialed in" perfectly until I get to some CAT scales. But I'll save that for another post.

I pulled it home late that afternoon and it was smooth sailing! I kept looking in the rear view mirrors to be sure that it was still there. Yup, followed me home just fine. We went from flat land towing to some hills where I live in NE Ohio and that went fine too. The steepest hill is the one I live on and I took it carefully down into the driveway. All A-OK.

Here we are--set up on the yard:
