Mostly done with our shakedown cruise
So, we're home... I still want to do some cleaning before I leave the Argosy in its storage spot, but it's murderously hot outside so I'm procrastinating. Tire temps ran 15-18 deg above ambient, and hub temps were always lower than the tire temps. So far the Argosy is even better than I'd hoped!
We started our day with this "healthy" breakfast of chorizo and eggs and good strong coffee, and had a sweaty walk around the campground with the dogs before we set about working through the departure checklist. No tank troubles or other real mishaps, though I need to do some work on the galley exhaust fan flap. I may replace the fan altogether in the process, what it lacks in its ability to move air it makes up for in excessive noise and vibration.
Well, I guess I'm really an Airstreamer now, I've towed, parked, set up, cooked in it, slept in it, packed up, dumped tanks, hitched up and come home. Woohoo!
