The Castaway is still there. Still in storage.
We checked on her several times during the winter. And, apart from filling up the batteries with distilled water, everything on board the coach was fine.
We will be taking our coach out of storage next Wednesday. Hopefully, the engine will start without any issues. After a full inspection of the coach, I’ll need to do the following:
- Inflate tires to nominal levels, front tires to 110 PSI cold, rear tires to 95 PSI cold
- Turn on the inverter and reset the charger
- Turn on the engine and idle
- Turn on 120V AC breakers
- Close and secure fridge doors
- Confirm interior cabin is set and ready
- Bring up jacks and head out of storage
We will be taking the coach to the Hitch House on Saturday for service and warranty work. I am also getting them to detail the coach. I did it myself last year and it took several days for me to complete the work. As we are downsizing and moving in a few months, I will not have time to detail the Castaway this spring. The dealer assures me that they will do a good job (I tend to be a bit fussy about detailing).
Lorraine and I are very excited to be bringing out the coach. With the house now sold, we are much closer to our retirement dream. We will be in Canada for another winter and after that we should be snowbirds by November of 2018.
I can hardly wait.
