Smile n00b from Southern California

Hello All!

I just got myself a trailer and I am jumping into RVing head first. Before this I was camping in the back of my truck or in a tent

I have a 2005 21 foot Forest River Surveyor SV210. I purchased it from a family member who purchased it new. I am pretty happy with it.....but like any RV it need TLC here and there. To go along with the trailer I purchased a Yamaha 2400 ishc generator and upgraded to two Exide 12v true deep cycle batteries ( not the dual purpose ).

I am currently towing it with a 2008 F250 Crew Cab Diesel.......yeah its overkill but I plan to upgrade to a bigger trailer in the next couple years.

My other vehicle is a 1999 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. Lots of bolt on performance parts.

Anyways....just thought I would say hello. See ya all around the forum.
