New to us from WNC

Hello all,

Just took delivery of a new to us 05 Newmar Essex. Big jump for us after renting in AK the past 7 years. Looking forward to learning all I can. This site has been a great source of information for us so far. Heading out in a few weeks from the Brevard,NC area for points west.

Congrats from another WNCer. Will you be making the trek to Alaska again? We did it last year, but want to get a few more dings and scratches on the new coach before we attempt the Alaska Highway again.

Hello,

Welcome to the Forum! You have definitely come to the right place. You might want to go into your profile and fill out a bit of info on your rig so if you have questions the guys will know how to answer you (personal to your rig).

So just in case you do not know, might want to get a water pressure gauge and water line filter. CG's (camp grounds) are notorious for high water pressure that can cause plumbing damage and sometimes the water is a bit dirty. You just want to NOT have a problem with your water or plumbing.

Good luck and keep it safe but mostly, you have some fun. LB

Thank You! We are planning Alaska for next year. We want to get some time and experience under our belt before we set off to the great north. Can't wait to do it the from the east coast vs renting up there.

Thanks for the info! That was one of the first things on our list we got after picking up the bus thanks to this forum! Learning a lot from all the great folks on here so far. Hope to be able to make a contribution in return eventually.
