Hip Hip Hooray!!!

Our new GK arrived at the dealer yesterday. Only a week late thanks to the Holiday, but at least it's here. They are doing their PDI today and we will leave Austin tomorrow morning to head to Canton. We are hoping to do our PDI on Thursday and then (fingers crossed) head toward Austin by Friday. I couldn't be more excited.

We are heading to Camping World to buy all the things we need to set up at the Park. Not sure what all we need, but I have the list for everyone here and I don't think there will be much else.

Wish us well and that everything goes without a problem.

Sharon

I will post pics as soon as I can. We will leave early in the AM to get to Canton so that we can drop of the surge protector for them to install. Unfortunately, neither of us are handy. Not sure how we will manage with what I hear everyone here does. I will be looking for the local handy man often!! LOL

We do our PDI on Thursday AM and I am in hopes of getting the new GK on the road to Austin that same day. Fingers crossed.

Thinking that it would arrive last week, I took this week off vacation only to sit around and wait. They told me today that they would probably be able to deliver on Saturday. OH NO!!! That meant not one single day to move in before back to work. But, because I have a terrific dealer, he worked out a delivery for Thursday. That gives me 2 days to get sorta moved in and then back to work. The worst is that we leave for Vegas on Thursday at 7am. I was really worried that I would not be able to get moved until the weekend after we returned from Vegas. Someone up there was watching out for us.
Of course, we don't have it yet and I don't want to count my chickens, so I am very hopeful at this point that everything will work out for Thursday.

Sharon

Just dropped off the surge protector to be installed before we PDI tomorrow morning. Had a chance to talk to the teck that will be doing our walk. Told him of some of my concerns. The roof seal being one. He said he was up on the roof and they overdid the sealant. Too much is better than not enough. Also talked about water hook ups. He assured me mine were fine. The one thing I thought was odd was they are having to replace my table due to a huge scratch. He said it looked like someone had slammed a cup down on it and pulled. If it was that bad, why did RW let it leave the factory that way? QC?? It will probably take a while for a replacement, but I'm ok with that.

Can't wait for tomorr

Looks like a water pressure regulator not purchased at Camping World but maybe a plumbing supplier...Sharon are you taking your baby home today?

Well, we are on our way back to Austin. The walk thru only took about 2 hours. I'm kinda scared we might have missed something since others have taken all day. We did video everything 'cause we will surely forget!! The GK should be delivered between 6 - 7pm. Then all the work begins to get moved in and set up.

We are headed to the house to get the first load. That way as soon as everything is up and running, I get started. I only have 2 days to get the majority done before I have to be back to work.

As much work as I have to do, I'm still super excited to start a new adventure with Wink!

Should have a glass of wine tonight after today's work is done in celebration!!

Sharon

Well, I haven't been on the forum much since we returned home with our 2014 38GK. We are close to being moved in, but leave for Vegas Thursday AM and decided to take a break and just enjoy our new home until we get back. Then, it will be full steam ahead.

We did our walk thru in only 2 hours. I was feeling a little apprehensive about what me might be missing. I was right. The tech that did our walk thur wasn't very through. So, we are making a list for our 6 month inspection.

Did have an interesting event today. When I got home from work, there was water (with a yellow tint) on the counter. We cannot tell where it came from. Nothing on the ceiling seems to be wet. Then I also noticed water on the floor near the fridge. Again can't tell where it is coming from.

Any thoughts.

Even though we have some issues, she is a beauty and we are thrilled!!

Sharon

Have you had any rain? Does it have the "feel" of water, or something else?

It might be coming from the Maxfan above the island and the stove. Consider installing a cover over it. Also re-caulk the fan on the roof. It may have a pin hole leak.
