Thank you for all of the help you provided and especially for your patience as you guided two newbies through the huge learning curve of driving and handling a Class A motorhome. Both Evelyn and I learned a great deal and feel a bit less intimidated by our coach. One of my greatest concerns was being able to back into a space in a campground. Our final exercise with you was practicing getting into our assigned space at the Thor Diesel Club rally we headed to on the day after our lesson. When we got to the park, we found that there was very little room to maneuver. We both got out of the coach and discussed our plan to get into the space. Evelyn then proceeded to direct me as we put the coach dead center in the space on the first attempt. We had a few adjustments as we backed, but did not have to pull forward to get centered. We only had a few inches of paved space on each side of the coach. We were only able to do this because of the time you spent teaching us how to park.
The weighing of the coach and discussing proper tire pressure was very important and helpful. We discussed this with the other attendees at the rally. Every one of them had tire pressure objectives right where you told us they should be after referring to the Michelin guide. The ride was greatly improved once we reduced the tire pressure to the correct psi.
Most of the other rally attendees recommended we use Freightliner to service our coach. Since I don’t have much aptitude for things mechanical, I need to rely on those that do. How do you feel about this recommendation?
We left the park Friday morning without incidence. Evelyn drove part way and did a wonderful job. On future travels, I will have no problem with her sharing the driving. Frankly, I rather enjoyed the freedom of being the passenger and enjoying the view.
