Harry Moto; New guy!

I've landed here at IRV2 about 30 times in the last few weeks... might as well make it official.

Recently retired, my wife and I decided to purchase a motorhome and become gypsies. We're both mid-sixties, and in good health, so it makes sense to pull the trigger right now while we can. Your health is never guaranteed.

Back in my working days we had a couple of motorhomes, a class C gas and a class A gas. After doing some research we decided this one would have to be a diesel pusher. We landed a 36 foot Monaco Safari Cheetah in need of some TLC. It's a 2005, exterior pretty clean, interior... well, I don't want to talk about it.

What I love about it is the Catepillar 350 powerplant. Going up the hills on the freeway, I've learned that when the boost gauge moves over to the +30 side, things start to happen. Fun stuff.

I've tons to learn about Freightliner chassis, Caterpillar Diesels, and Allison transmissions, and I've gotten a good start right here. Thanks for all you guys have shared, and for being such a nice community! I'll be seeing you all around the forums.

Thanks for the kind words and warm welcome. It's slow going, and the trail is long, but we have faith that we'll be happy gypsies next year!
