on the road again I just cant wait to get on the road again ;-)

First time on a site like this first time rv owner's we plan to retire in this rig so I hope to get to know it very well. Right off the bat we created a parking crisis in our neighbor hood because the rig is so dang big. prepping the driveway to pull it up next to the house. Spectrum was great they're coming out to move the cable tv box to an underground vault so I can get more of a straight shot along side the garage... In the mean time I'm sitting on our sloped street and am planning on making some leveling ramps out of horse stall mats. I already messed around with those plastic blocks and still didnt get the back end up high enough. well thats it for now. here's to life on the road!!!

I havent done the math yet... I have to put a level on the ground raise it up until the bubble is in the center... then I have to get a measurement between the center of front and back tires... not sure what the wheelbase info is needed for. I figure if I get a inches reading when the level is level that'll be how high in need to raise this thing..... some much info on the internet. :-)
