First family trip -->successful

Our first trip in the Classic was an unqualified success. We stayed at Fort Wilderness at WDW. The campground there is very well maintained with large sites separated by landscaping. Pool, watersports, campfire sign alongs, movies, plenty to keep the troops busy even if you don't want to go to one of the theme parks. That said the real story is that we made it there and back with no issues.

Not sure what mileage we got as the odo is inoperative but what ever it was is okay. Great way to travel, everyone had plenty of room to get comfortable and the sleeping arrangements worked fine for the 4 of us.

Complaints, a few. Better sound insulation would be nice as it is a little noisy on the road. The dash air was not working a result of something we did when working out some other bugs, so a fair amount of heat was coming in instead of nice cool air.

Sprung a water leak behind the hamper in the bathroom that soaked the carpet and vanity unit. That is fixable though. Water tasted horrible according to my wife but did not bother me since I only used it for washing.

And my leveling jacks refused to work for some unknown reason. That is all the bad. The good, everyone had fun, no planes to catch or cars to rent, lots of room to travel, comfortable when parked. Looking forward to the next trip.

See you on the road.

I just completed the 1 week tech school from HWH and I'm now a factory authorized service center. If you have their jacks, let me know and I might be able to diagnose the problem for you, as I now have most of their manuals.
