Hi all,

We traded in our 30 foot TT for a used motorhome earlier this month. We've taken one local camping trip in South Carolina so far and we are going out again next weekend....great fun!

It's a 2002 Tiffin Phaeton DP, 38+ feet and alot bigger than what I'm used to, but I'm getting the hang of it and having a blast when we get to drive it out on the road. So high up off the road you can see over most vehicles, and the view is terrific.

I spent my Xmas vacation fixing most of the "little" things (resealed roof, loose screws, battery maint, leaky kitchen faucet, clogged low point drain to name a few) and it's shaping up nicely.

We're planning a trip across country to Calif and Washington state to see the sites and visit with relatives that I have seen in twenty+ years. Before I do that, I need to replace the tires. They are 22.5 rims and I know they won't come cheap. Anyone know where the best places to purchase RV tires would be?

Anyway, glad to be a new member on this forum

DoubleVeteran (Larry)

If you join FMCA they have a Michelin tire program that should save you some money.

Welcome and hope you enjoy that rig. Dreyer (sp?) Island SP on Lake Murray is pretty nice.

Kix, we're about 100 miles from Dryer Island and go there frequently in the summer, when we can get a camping spot
