Been lurking for months and felt the need to join up. Have enjoyed the great information available and the friendly attitude of the posters.

Bought a TT in '02, 5'er in '05 and Type A Gasser in '10 from the same dealer. Salesman said we'd be back after each sale and so far he's been right, but hopefully not this time. About a years worth of camping days during that time and lots of great places visited.

Currently have an '05 Newmar Scottsdale on Workhorse W22. Can't seem to keep my hands out of the tool box and stop making changes to it. So far:
Front and Rear track bars,
Koni FSDs,
Front Sumosprings,
Steer Safe,
Residential Refrigerator and Inverter,
TST Pressure Monitor,
Manual Electric Cool Pack Fan Switch,
Driving (Fog) Lights use with low beams.

DW says I need to find a new, less expensive hobby. Oh, and to stop reading posts on this forum for new ideas (thanks to many of you for them)!

Sounds like you have a lot of experience. Tell your wife that when you quit playing she had better bury you.

Hi and welcome to the forum. My DW cringes every time I open the tool box and head towards the MH. I guess as a hobby it would seem expensive, but dirt cheap when you look at it as a second home or your vacation house.

Welcome Tom. Glad you could join us. That way I'm not the only spending money on one of the expensive, addicting habits. I recognized several items from your list. Keep us updated.
