New guy on the block

Hello everyone from Northern Utah. I'm really a newby to the camping world. My wife has done a lot of camping in a previous marriage but not me. Last year at the end of season she talked me into going out with her son & family. You guessed it, I got hooked. We scouted around a bit and found a super deal on a used TT but it was too late to get out. Now we are suffering while waiting for the weather to warm up a bit more.
Hoping I can hold out a few more weeks.

Thanks,
Samslik

Appreciate all the kind hearted welcomes. Does anyone have any good tips for a seventy year old rookie? I've never pulled A trailer before so it should be a very interesting challenge.

Sam

Old Campers - New to Forum

We have been motorhoming for about 18 years and on our second RV. Have a Newmar Dutch Star and love it. Had Fleetwood Flair before that. We travel about 6 months off and on during the year, mostly in the Southeastern US. Thanks so much for your helpful answers to problems. I have already found answers to a hot water heater problem and am now trying to get help removing baggage doors. Have posted a new thread asking for help. Would appreciate any help possible. Looking at $500 to remove and replace 3 doors. We had a fight with one of those 6" concrete/steel poles that guard the pumps in gas stations and the pole won.
