Never thought I'd be here!

My wife and I just retired a couple months ago, and my wife thought we needed to buy a used rv to take the grandboys "camping." So after looking at several class c's, we could not turn down a 95 winnebago brave, 27', class a.
We have taken one small shakedown trip with the grandboys, and it was fun. We are looking to see New England and the west in the future.
I have been searching the forums for info on a electrical problem, and will be asking for some understanding on how things work, and should work!
Thanks for what seems like a great site.

Hi folks! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you're here! Congrats on the new Winnie! You've got a lot of memory-building ahead of you with the grandkids, so enjoy every minute of it! RV'ing is a wonderful lifestyle, just wish we had discovered it when our kids were little. Good luck & God bless!

Welcome! Great rig you have there. We have a 95 Winnebago Brave 27'. It is a lot of fun and can be maneuvered quite easily. If you have a question about it, give me a PM or post.

Ahhh, the old "Never thought I'd be here" thread. Have a good troll around, and if you have questions ask them. If you have answers speak up as well.

With 18,000+ members, there is loads of info floating around here.

And Welcome to the madhouse!
