Hi from North Florida,

I’m in North Florida but have a 38’ Sandpiper TT that stays under cover on vacation acreage in the NW where I generally spend three or four months in the summer. It’s a long drive out and back each year and in September I finally gave in to the urge and bought my first motor home.

What a first road trip it was, a brand spankin’ newbie driving that big baby cross-country and pulling my SUV behind on a U-Haul car dolly. No, I had never pulled anything behind anything before in my entire life. And no, I had never driven a motor home except for the little test drives with the seller muttering prayers over his rosary beads… jokin…

My crash course included adventures as a Craigslist buyer, first time motor home driver, and a beginner’s view of truck stops, Wally World, an almost-Dorothy-storm coming across Kansas, and navigating through Denver, Kansas City, St. Louis, Nashville, and Atlanta with a 6 year old GPS.

With a combination of beginners’ luck, ignorance is bliss, and the Good Lord watches out for fools and little children, my furry kidz and I made it back south with everything in one piece and only one set of skid marks on the side from getting on one of those red gas pump guard post thingies (nobody warned me not to back up if I was towing …:-)).

First question… how do I get the red post paint skid marks off the side of my coach ?

I would use some WD-40 you will be suprised to see how easy the red pant will come off and it will not hurt your R.V. Paint eather.
A frind of mine sent me an E-mail on WD-40, there must be 30 diferance things that you can use it for and it won't hurt anything it's made of Fish Oil.
If I had your E-mail address I would send you the list.

Good for you! Glad it went well except for the paint. And, I second the WD-40 - was out in the unexpected November sunshine today applying on the TT step brackets. Wonderful stuff.

Thanks for the WD-40 idea. That's something I need to stash onboard anyhow.

I'm trying to figure out how to set up my forum account... privacy levels etc etc and actually getting sorta confused. Is there a forum section where people talk about the how-to part of using the forums ?
