Oh no here we go...

Hi everyone,

Just purchased our first Class A MH. Well technically we traded our 36' Catalina sailboat for her, (hmm, do MHs have a gender... ). We're in the home stretch toward our retirement target date and looking to move back home (Phoenix) after 25 years in upstate New York. The plan is to spend the hot months where it's not . Did I say Phoenix? We may be on the road 10 months!!

Current challenges include getting the coach out of the shop where she(?) has been since early August, yikes, waiting for a solenoid for the leveling system, figuring out how to tow a toad, and logging some hours behind the wheel. We should be good to go with retirement 12 months away.

We look forward to learning from all of you and sharing what we can.

Welcome aboard. Going from a yacht to a land yacht. You will find that both take a lot of maintenance.

I think I would not be looking to settle in Phoenix though.

Welcome and congrats on the new rig!

Yes, I think that just like boats, motorhomes are female. How else could they bring us such joy, comfort and consternation all at the same time?

We spend the winter between Buckeye, Az and San Diego to be near the kids and grandbabies. Oh yeah, and to be out of the cold!

Best of luck...
