Hello from North California..

Meant to say Northern Ca.
We have owned our first and current RV for almost 2 years.
What started as just looking for something cheap got me onto buying a sort of rare model but chassis and price was right. Ended up with a 38 foOtero Class A
Almost 2 years now and wife and I are enjoying ourself and so far after 15 trips we are lucky.
Getting new tires next week and that was also a learning experience. Have safe and happy trips. I'm hoping to learn from the Pros.

I haven't been here on the forum very long myself but I am in the Sacramento area. There is a ton of great information here and nice folks willing to help where they can.

There is also quite a bit of useful information on Youtube concerning maintenance and upkeep.

I have had a small trailer (Apex 215RBK) for about a year and a half. The trailer has helped initiate my wife and I to living in an RV. Still learning the ropes but having fun at the same time. We take delivery of our new MH this coming Tuesday....thus the reason I am here. I need the expertise of these guys and am hoping I can get to know some fellow RV'ers along the way.

Have fun!

Chance

Thanks for the welcome. Chance my wife and I have been going all over..we did 2 weeks on the Oregon Coast and lots of campgrounds within 100 miles. New to RV but have been boaters prior on a 55 ft boat in Isleton. I know a little about mechanicals as I tinker quite a bit on gasoline and diesel motors, but very strong on electronics.
Congrats to your new RV. If I can help out let me know. I'm not retired and still awhile and waiting for it.

Hello and welcome aboard from the north east coast. You've come to the right place for anything from mechanical to electrical and where to go from here.

...hmmm...we'll be the riffraff in the Winnie 31 footer...

As for the retirement thing, my wife and I will be going the end of June. So I am a little limited in my ability to travel until then.

Thank you for the offer to help out. Maybe we can meet up some time in the MHs and compare notes. I, myself, am a novice when it comes to motors and electronics...though if you give me enough time, I can tinker quite a few things out. Thank God for the internet!

Chance

Welcome to the forum!
We spent a week around Crescent City after going down the Oregon coast. Beautiful country!
