Today we drove Charley to Ehrhardt’s Trailer Sales in Des Plaines – the next suburb over from our summer storage site – which gave us some more city driving practice. There, we got schooled by Dave, an awesome technician with 23 years of RV experience. He showed us RV neophytes how to operate our unit – from the hot water heater (capacity just 6 gallons – Navy showers!) to pumping out black water (first!) and grey water (second, to act as sort of a rinse) and everything in between. I took copious notes – eight pages of them – so with this training, we are ready to hit the road!
