Maiden voyage for new TV - tomorrow!

Got all my supplies loaded and my trailer hooked up to my F-150 ecoboost. I'll be hitting the road tomorrow morning, hopefully no later than 10 AM. From here to Reed Bingham State Park about 2 and a half hours down the road. Couple of nights there, then on to Ochlockonee River State Park just south of Tallahassee, Florida, another 2.5 hours. I'll be there a week. This will be the first time I have towed the RB220 with the new TV. Really looking forward to seeing how it does.

I'm a little confused on just what you have for an RV.
You don't by any chance mean--ST220RB--do you?

Anyway, have a good trip, and enjoy your units.

Ah, yes, I have the ST220RB. I changed my signature too. I'll update the photo sometime this week, as the current one still shows my Tacoma.

Weather promises to be quite nice too - upper 70's to low 80's, little chance of rain for the most part. Long range forecast calls for possible T-storm the day before I leave, but only 40%.

Sounds exciting - you're finally getting out. We just had our first 70 degree days and looking like the weathers going I stay in the 60s. We had 8" of snow Wed. 4/16 and we're a little gun shy yet - hoping for consistent weather. We still need to stock the '05 Cruiser 28FB to get it ready for the first time. We too are itching to get out. Looking like 5/8 - 5/10 could be the first run.

You folks enjoy yourself - we're jealous having to wait but it will be here soon.

First stop, no problems. Ecoboost did great. I was even able to use cruise control, which I could not do with the Tacoma. Weather is great too. Very pleased so far.

Glad to hear it Went well. Personal preference for me is to not use cruise control when towing. I prefer to control the acceleration and speed myself.
