New member saying Hi!

Hello to everyone.
My family and I(Wife,7 month old son,and dog) spend approx. 9-10 months of the year living in our 5th wheel due to my choice of occupation.
My son is only 7 months old and has spent 5 of those months on the road with ole dad. I work pipeline construction for a living and have for 18years. I have pulled a trailer all over the U.S for 13 of those 18 years.
I've been reading through your posts and have seen alot of good advice (and couple of good squabbles that were fun to read through) that I wish would have been avalible throughout the first several years that I started pull'n trailers. Even though our trailer is not used as a recreational type vehicle we still enjoy the bennifits of r.v parks,parking with other campers and rv's as compared to motel living while on the road.
Over the 13 year period I have pull'd, lived in,tore up,fixed and crash'd several different sizes, brands and types of trailers. Not sure I will have any good answers for questions about what to do, but gaurantee will have some good ones for what NOT to do! LOL!
Oh Yeah our current Home away from home is an 06' 33ft Keystone Challenger(5thwheel) Pulled buy(my work truck) 07' 3/4 ton, 4x4 Dodge reg. cab lwb,5.7 gasser all stock,3.73's and firestone air bags. Reece 16k slider hitch(last truck was a short wheelbase)

Welcome to the forum - we're glad you here. First bit of advice - try not to crash any more rv's... it always ruins the day
