Newbie fulltimers checking in

We sold our house and bought a 2012 Fleetwood Bounder 33C to live in. Its been a couple of months now and we are loving it. We're starting out by staying in full service campgrounds until we get a real feel for what w are doing.

So far we've had only 2 mishaps. Vacum pump won't turn off auromatically, and we got a massive puncture in the sidewall of an inside dually tire. Have a 60 month exclusionary warrantee which will cover the pump repair, but declined the tire coverage, which probably was a mistake ($600 to replace).

Anyhow, life is good.
