Newbie Checking In

We purchased our rig last September and I started using this site as a reference for repairs and modifications needed to get unit back to next to new condition. Thanks to this site I have been able to save lots of cash by doing the minor repairs myself instaed of taking it in to the RV service centers.

We have three years until we will be full timers but we will continue to practice every chance we get.

Glad to be part of this site

Welcome to the Forum and congrats on your rig. We also have saved a lot of money doing some repairs ourselves. This is a great Forum, IMHO. Best of luck on your plans to fulltime.

Happy RV'ing

I do most of my minor maintenance (Things like replacing the 8.1L Vortec V-8.. That one is going to cost me,, but alas)

Furnace, Water heater, Slides, and much much more are easily serviced... Tomorrow I need to fix a friend's water heater (Downloaded the manual so I know what the problem is, Have the two parts needed in stock....cable ties of all things) Life is good.

Between the various folks here there is very likely NOTHING that can go wrong with your rig that one of us has not seen before.
Home is where I park it!
