Shakedown Cruise. Dallas to Caprock Canyon State Park.


Prepping the coach.


Rest stop south of Childress, Texas. Ours is the black one.


Caprock Canyon, Texas


View from 100 feet above the Canyon floor. Yes, that’s my thumb on the lower right hand side of the photo.  Too lazy to crop.


Backing into spot 22.  We highly recommend this State Park as an RV spot. $15 bucks per night for 30 Amp service, fresh water and a dump station on the way out.  Also, free roaming bison for the viewing.


Standing in water next to 30 Amp electricity. I foresee no issues at all with that.  Camco water filter, water regulator and 30 Amp surge protector. I also bought the locking clasp for the surge protector, but since the thing plugged into the post, it was of no help. I could have used it between the 30 amp extension and the surge protector and thus made a thief take the entire assembly.  Yeah, that would have shown him.


The white water hose was just long enough.  Reminds me of an old joke that Abe Lincoln used to tell….


Here is why one does a shakedown cruise.  We learned that the shower drain doesn’t.  We also found a bad pixel on the Jensen TV–it is small but annoying.  Also, the shower curtain is missing a ring.  And finally, we could not get the air out of the lines when using the water pump.  Hopefully, our dealer, who has been responsive so far, can fix these July 1-2, 2015.


Time to pack up and head home. We had soft tacos (tortillas, ground beef, salsa, etc.) and S’mores for dinner the night before, and breakfast tacos (tortillas, eggs, sausage) and cowboy coffee for breakfast the next day. A fun trip for 4 in the ERA 70X.
