Hello Beautiful RV Humans!!

We have a large family (Mom,Dad and two sets of twins ages 11 and 6) and spend one month in our 1997 Bounder 36S each year. This has been our third year and we are absolutely hooked. We travel from OKC to Florida.

This year the honeymoon on our dated RV expired. We had a lot of things go wrong. Hydraulic jacks failed, Auto steps gears stripped, torsion springs in window awning broke, patio awning brake failed and unraveled on a bridge in 60 mph winds, fuel pump went, master cylinder failed, and some other minor issues.....

I turned to this forum over and over again for help and suggestions. I also learned this year of the extreme generosity and kindness of fellow RV'ers when broken down on the side of the road. During our three breakdowns, RV'ers in the local area, not RV'ing at the time, stopped what they were doing and pulled over to help us. In all three situations their advice, support and kindness relieved the stress of the moment, saved us a lot of money by directing us to their mechanics and technicians and last but not least, introduced us to the camaraderie and protective eye that RV'ers have over one another. We are thankful beyond words!!!

So, we are here to learn and to pay our appreciation forward any way that we can. I have a list two pages long of items to be fixed before next years trip and will be sharing my experiences along the way.

I am a heating and air conditioning contractor and own a business in Oklahoma City. If anyone has any questions about their home or RV systems please let me know. Thank you for reading my intro and be safe out there!!!
