Special Thanks To All

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for their efforts in reading and responding to the threads and posts. Your inputs have been very informative and helpful to me, and I'm sure others, too.

As you are probably aware, I live in my Bounder, and am doing all that I can to get it ready for full-time travelling when I retire in 3 yrs.

I don't want to need repairs, maintenance, or modifications before I start my journey. I am sure there will be plenty that pop up along the way.

Its seems I am on THIS site more than any other, often 3-4 hrs a day.

Even though many subjects have undoubtly been repeated several times, I always seem to learn something new when a person starts another thread. ie: converter-charger.....water pump inop.....solar panels cost.....
etc. etc.

I keep a pad and pen handy to add to my list of "to-do's". And to do research on a part or subject mentioned by you.

I have 30 yrs experience in the auto repair world, so I try to lend a hand when I can. But, it seems there are some very intelligent and experienced members here already.

Thanks again for being there, and all your help.

Yep.....and when I mention this to a customer, they look at me all funny and say : "Oh...you don't want to retire yet, getting older isn't good".

I never thought I'd be saying I wish I were already 62. But I just can't wait to hit the road.

You may be surprised how fast the time goes as you get older. The time will come quickly. Enjoy your time as it comes....Some of us will soon be 67 and I'm still working.

It's a pretty great membership huh? It's actually the first forum of any kind that I joined five years ago and I continue to be amazed at how helpful everyone is and how addicting all that "learning" can be.

Just for jollies, a few month ago I went back and read some of my first posts here. I wasn't even a newbie then... had never owned any kind of RV... and was asking questions like, "gas vs diesel"

The kind folks here helped guide our purchase of a new 40DP and have served as a tremendous educational base which got us through two years of very extended travel and two years of full time.

BTW, be careful spending so much time here. You could end up a moderator!

Yeah, I will be carefull, as that's what happened to me when I had my Toyota Supra sports car. But it was fun. Over there though, were lots of young 'racers' that were mostly interested 'go faster' things, and restorations.
Only took mine to 156 mph twice. Those telephone poles were going by too fast to keep doing it.
Loved those Angeles Forest mtn roads.
