For the record, we have enjoyed our first trip getting to know our AS. We had our issues and problems, many of them just because everything is so new to us! It's one thing to "read" how to do something, quite another to actually "do".
From learning how to hook everything up. Trying to figure out the air condition, DVD player, refrigerator, microwave/convection, water heater, heater, and on and on. We went out and bought a cable so we could hook up to cable TV and it comes in lousy. I accidentally reset the systems monitor, and it has to be recalibrated at the dealership tomorrow.
And now to learn we might have to invest in recliners or a new sofa!
On the bright side, we visited Hurricane Ridge at the Olympic National Forest yesterday, and loved coming "home" to the AS.
Yes, the sofa is not the most comfortable thing I've ever sat on, but who cares. If my butt gets sore I go for a walk, get some fresh air and enjoy the people and places my Airstream have taken me. I'm probably going to upgrade the foam, but it's not a big priority for me. There are lots of other projects I have planned first.
I recommend Fort Worden in Port Townsend. An enchanting place.
