Friday, November 2 – Well, we're all packed up and ready to go. Marsha was so excited that we successfully hooked-up the trailer on the first try. Guess she thought Paul would miss the pin box while backing the truck under the fifth wheel....ha ha! We successfully towed the 5th wheel about ten feet with no mishaps!

Marsha's responsibility for this first time was to be sure the pin aligned with the hitch.

Paul did check the tire pressure on the trailer and discovered only 65 pounds of air pressure in all the tires instead of the 80 pounds marked on the tires. So he dug out his air compressor that he had stored in the basement of the 5th wheel and increased the pressure to the recommended amount. Wonder why the RV dealer delivered the 5th wheel with low air pressure?

With everything completed, we settled into the house for the last night in Ohio. Interestingly enough, there were a few snow flakes in the air as we closed-up shop.

Here are just a few photos of the inside.
