All in all how did your AI perform?
Did you move back into your condo?
We are back in the condo. It was only rented out for the first three months, only because no renter materialized for the 4th month. Everything looks in good shape too, thank goodness. Will not hesitate to rent it out again.
The AI did great, considering all the miles we put on. The fridge was a problem at the beginning, but it was finally taken care of at Jackson Center.
Besides that, we had some odds and ends pieces on the interior fall off (screws, pads, weird little items), but nothing of much importance. I have a little zip lock baggie with the little pieces in there. Don't even know where some of them came from!!
We had a couple issues that happened, of course, in remote places. First, both of our keys stopped working (couldn't lock or unlock doors, except for using the actual key in the driver door). That was weird, and then, after about 4-5 days, they both started working again. Will have that checked out
And then, we had a slow tire leak while in Newfoundland. The alarm on our TPMS went off when pressure dropped to 55 psi. Mark was able to pump up the tire to 59 psi with our bike pump. Did that for a couple days, until we got to a town where there was a tire shop open and able to help us out. Turned out to be a loose valve stem, and not the tire after all.
But, operationally, not a single other problem!!
Only two items on the "wish list" for an improved experience.....
#1 would be to have a slightly larger fridge. We were able to fit a lot of food and cold drinks in there, but it would become so jam packed that stuff would fall out every time we opened it. And stuff was so jam packed in there that we couldn't find stuff that was in the back. I'm going to search for some organizational ideas at the container store later this week.
#2 would be nice to have the back end of the vehicle not be so dang low to the ground. The lowness was a constant issue even just going up and down driveways to gas stations, etc..
Otherwise, she drove like a dream, and everything worked beautifully. We definitely made the right choice when we bought her! She is the right RV for us.

What a great adventure you have had!
And, no better vehicle within which to do it. Everything you need, right there.
I know, Maggie! The AI seems to fit with how we travelled. And we used everything from the microwave, to the 2-burner stove, to an occasional shower when camp showers weren't available or were too disgusting. We even got to use the outdoor shower a couple times (for ourselves as well as to give the dogs a needed bath).
Can't wait for the next trip!! Already making notes about things to do differently, things to take, things to leave at home, etc..
I think we've got a major travel bug disease now!
