First Hookup

We finally put the two big puzzle pieces together on the road this AM.

We just went around the corner to a large parking lot and went through unhooking and hooking up a couple of times. We had trouble getting the sliding hitch to slide but I think we just misunderstood where to put the lever.  Back in the garage with the trailer off I can get the hitch to move easily.

We made a family task out of the hookups - watching a video online then talking through the process.  I just know the more eyes on things the less likely we are to damage something.

We may make it for camping this weekend yet..have propane to fill and other stuff to try out..but we’re getting there!
