A Chilly Hello

Good morning ! I hope it is warmer wherever you are. Hello from Baltimore MD. The wife and I had always talked about buying an RV and traveling the country when we retire. And even tho that's still a few years away I went out and bought a nice used Class C to see how "we" would like it ( I was pretty much sold on it ), Well "we" love it and have been traveling up and down the east coast for several years now. The different places we have seen are beautiful and the people have been fantastic. Meeting new friends at every stop. I'm still working on figuring out all the mechanical in's and out's of an RV ( I'm an electrician and have been around construction my whole life but things are a little bit different in these tiny houses ) and Mama is dealing with only having 10% of her usual closet space. But we love it and I'm sure this is just the beginning for us. I have been following this site for a while but a problem with a leaky shower prompted me to join up and post a message in the forums to try to make sure I'm on the right track for fixing it. Sorry I jumped the gun and didn't introduce myself first. And along those lines if you check out the handle ( for those of you who remember the days of CB ) I'm Mr. Wizard, or Wiz, and the better half is Vicki. Y'all have a good one, I'm 10-10 on the side.

10-4 Mr. Wizard, Welcome to the forum!

I'm 10-12 for some pics of your RV, as I''m sure some others are.

This is a great friendly forum with lots of knowledgeable folks for questions on you RV. Since your an Electrician, you'll have knowledge to share as well.

Catch you on the flip-side,

Rich I have tried to post a picture but the equipment just isn't cooperating. I just took a particularly sad one of it sitting in our latest snow storm the other day. But it's just a nice clean 1996 24ft Itasca Class C that I picked up used. It has everything we need and after our first camper, an 18ft Honey Class C, we feel we have enough room to roller skate inside.
