Wink Hey from Lexington, KY

My wife and I are class B, RVers since last year. Been on a couple of trips and had a lot of laughs at some of the things that I did wrong. Great site!

Glad to have you on the forum. Now tell us about the things you did wrong. I'm sure somebody else on here can relate.

Oh, pulling in at night at our first campsite in AL, I hooked up the city water and it blew out the plug for the exterior tank, by the drivers side door. Water was streaming in and my wife was screaming, telling me to turn it off. Needless to say I had a little water to clean up before bed time!

Their never mistakes made, what you have are memories. Enjoy them, we all do. The thing is, more will come and you'll laugh at them as well. It just takes longer sometimes. Safe and trouble free travels.

Welcome aboard Lexstone. It takes a while to figure out all those valve positions so water squirting all over is not a surprise. Just keep on using your new toy and enjoy the good times. Make sure you check in on the Class B discussion area. There are a few "B" owners there.

Hi Lexstone, welcome to the forum. Love the Lexington area. Earned my masters at EKU down in Richmond. Still enjoy it anytime I can get up that way.
