Newbie from Kansas City

Hello all,

I just became custodian of a 2005 Monaco Knight and have begun the art of learning how to RV in it.

I was referred here by Jerry who said this is a great resource for beginning RVers. I have some electrical gremlins with the Monaco and will be searching and then posting looking for a little bit of help with them once I learn my way around here. So far it looks like a great place though...

Thanks for having me,

Thank you everyone for the kind welcomes... Interesting to see so many from this area on here.

I spent some quality time with a digital ohm meter on the coach last night and have discovered the house batteries are hooked up completely wrong. I'll be diving into rewiring them tonight and hopefully that'll cure all of the ills.
