Nice to hear from you. I had an idea that your AS was a bit more pampered than our 'ol girl. Our AS seems to have spent her life outside in S. Florida (hurricanes and all) but she has lots of potential! And once we get the 'vent leak' problem worked out I'm sure all will progress nicely. Our last "mystery" is how to get the 'Fresh Water' tank access open, seems to be a common problem...I wish people were better at keeping track of keys!
We know what you mean about a "cozy" feeling. AS just feel secure, almost solid.
