Hello everyone,

Just happen to stumble over this site and thought it might be good for
someone new to the RV world. I just bought a 2001 Winnebago Journey
32ft pusher. Used to use a F350 dually to tow my car to the track but
got tired of the hotel expense along with the fuel cost. Took it out for the
first time this past weekend and it was nice to be able to sit in comfort
during the race and even have a cup of coffee. Look forward to chatting

Welcome aboard and safe travels,
My website describes the conversion of my Dodge B-250 van into a small RV. I deal with a lot of woodworking, but hope to be quite specific on solar as well.

Thanks for all the welcome messages. My girlfriend (Retired Chief Petty Officer 22 years) and I took the RV and race car to Richmond this past few days and had a
blast. The RV was great, but we were a little nervous about using up all the fresh
water being the first trip. I don't think the indicator for the amount of water left in
the tank is working. It registered 2/3 full after the first day. Other then that, it was
a blast. Now if I can do a better job of racing, we will have it all figured out. lol

Thanks again
