Yesterday we traveled to Dothan, AL for some family business and also a stop at Camping World.
Our first meal in the bus. We stopped for lunch at Sonic. Because we no longer fit under the overhang, we parked in a vacant lot next door. While John fetched the food, I cranked up the generator and the A/C. Heaven!

This CW is one of the large ones with probably 20 RVs for sale inside. The store is extensive as well. I didn't get quite the level of help I wanted (the first employee who was helping me turned out to be the bookeeper! The second employee had just started on Monday - I had to show him where the electrical section was). But I think I got all of what I came for.
An teeny tiny table - not much bigger than a coaster but it will fit nicely in the bus, water filter, surge protector, voltage meter, and a 30/15 adapter. Next we went to the dump station where a nice young man let me know that I was managing my waste correctly.
And, I don't want to brag or anything, but I'm now a member of the Good Sam Club. But please .... treat me as you would anyone else.
It felt odd just shopping in the store and not scrambling in and out of all the RV models because ...... now I don't have to!!!
So it was a successful trip. The Good Deal Bus is a comfortable roadtrip vehicle for sure!
I discovered that my camera battery was low so I charged it going down the road. The convenience of that thrilled me no end. That experience brought up an inverter question which was answered by the incredibly helpful Yahoo Roadtrek discussion group.
The only sour note: the built-in TomTom was a navigational nightmare. It's way too complicated to operate and I don't think it got anything right all day! It kept threatening to take us on unpaved roads. I threatened right back. It seems incapable of recalculating. The system is very unpopular with the Roadtrek crowd. Not a problem - I'll just bring along my trusty Garmin on the road.
