Orientation Day

Will 8 AM ever get here? Today is our orientation and pick up of our new 19' Escape. I feel that the members of the Escape Forum are my support group. Only here can I say that the Forum is the last thing I look at in the evening and the 1st in the morning! (Not counting checking in throughout the day) I feel that I know so many of you from the 1+ year that I have been a member. My wife and I are now sitting in the Hampton, just feet (or meters) away from the ETI factory. Kind of feels like Christmas morning when I was a kid - when can I go down and unwrap the present So for now, we sit and wait. But @ 8 AM, a whole new phase of our lives begins. Yes Donna, I will post photos! Thanks for everyone's help in assisting us along the way.

Congratulations! I am sure you will enjoy your 19 as much as we do.

I can remember everything except how to deploy the awning. I would do a video next time. Would also have asked a few more questions re the inverter and surge protector.

Our orientation is on the 14th at 11:00, making it a long morning. After 7 plus months, I guess we can stand waiting a little longer.

I wee bit excited, are we?
Don't blame you.

As we were in a hurry, and it was the 11th hour finishing a few things on our trailer, I skipped our orientation. Besides, we were heading to a rally that Reace and Tammy would be at anyway. I only had one question for him, and that was where to find that tiny 120V switch on the water heater.

There was an orientation video made by Tammy. It showed, among other things, how to put up and take down the awning. I reviewed it numerous times in order to write down the steps, so I could put it up and not screw things up.

I agree! Before heading to Chilliwack, we viewed Tammy's video numerous times; however, the whole orientation was a bit overwhelming and when we headed out on our own, we were looking at each other saying, "What did they say about this or that?" Perhaps there should be a list of "little things to pay attention to" -- like the by-pass valves on the water heater. We were in a panic that the valves were turned the wrong way and we would burn out the water heater before our first day ended. Who knew they weren't visible from the outside ...
