new guy from pflugerville tx (by austin)

hello all,

proud new owner from texas and just purchased a 2000 tradewinds. older model, but new to me.

been lurking for a while and decided to dive in after my first outing this weekend and got a few questions.

i hope I can get the posting right so please bare with me. hopefully I may be able to share some knowledge to others, but unfortunatly most of my knowledge is 3000 hp race cars or racing 4 wheelers and zippo on an RV. LOL.


thanks ahead to all for upcoming stupid questions.

howard brown

Any ideas on how to get one of those 3,000 HP motors into an RV?

Welcome aboard iRV2. Be sure and wonder down the forum page to the south central section and look in on the activities of the Texas Boomers.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new RV. We are in Texas also. Taking our TT down to San Angelo next weekend to watch some incredible horsepower on the liquid quarter mile. Again, welcome and enjoy.
