Even though I am kinda a newbie here as well, since we have something in common, I will welcome you aboard as well! Plus, I am sure you too will discover there is no better place to be!
Last year I bought an 04 Bounder, 38n for somewhat similar reasons! Though not a nurse, there are a number irony's there as well!
I will try to take a little time today and draft a little list of the things I've experienced and the tribulations so far. But, I am still in the "love my bounder" camp! We can compare notes and maybe be of some aissistance to each other on this journey!
