Joy, Welcome to the forum. Every one on this forum was new at some point. Stay tuned, and you'll pick up a lot of good info and don't be shy about asking what you might perceive to be unintelligent questions. Congrats on the new to you RV...

Hi Joy and welcome to the forum! I made a post similar to yours about 5 years ago. The knowledge I gained from this forum helped me get to full timing and has kept me safe and sound.

Don't be shy. Jump right in. We're glad you're here.

Welcome Joy. I'm still pretty new myself but learning a lot at this website. I have an older RV too and have found a lot of good info for older rigs at the Vintage RV section. Check it out. Also, ask questions if you don't know something, the people here are very nice and helpful. Good Luck and travel well!

Thumbs up

Thank you all for the warm welcomes. I have already learned some things. This is a great forum. I'm sure I will have questions along the way.

Hello Joy! Warning, this forum is very addicting! I try and read as much as possible every day. I am always relaying bits of info to DH. And I can't begin to tell you how many friends we have made from this site. Try attending the 2012 IRV2 National Rally in September. That is where we met so many people and learned alot from the seminars. Safe travel and hope to see you on the road somewhere.
