Hello community,
My names John and I'm new to this "way" of life.
Sorry about the typeset as I'm having tech problems
With my I-phone. I'm kinda pressed for time but here goes.

Thrown into the fulltime RV life 7 months ago not knowing the
First thing about the ways and means of this skillset.
Having been put through a 9 yr Divorce to being Homeless
As well as penniless I made final dollars be invested into a....Less
Than liveable Fifth Wheel;-(. I've come from no idea of Fifth Wheel
life to ?( knowing I don't have a clue)!
Anyways, from buying the cheapest Fifth Wheel and no vehicle
Equipped to tow it safely, my fleet consists of my 2009 F-150, my Ford
L9000,9sp. Eaton Fuller Diesal Semi! (my problems towing anything
I may grow into are solved). I gotta run but just wanted to say Hello
Before I left today. I'll be back. Thank You, John

Hi John! Welcome to IRV2! We're glad you joined the group here! Sorry about the way you got into the RV'ing lifestyle, but I think you'll love it once you get settled in and learn a few basic things. If you have questions I would suggest you post them over in the other areas of the forum that apply to your specific question. You'll get better results there because not too many folks hang out here in the welcome area. Good luck and God bless!

Thank you everyone for the kind welcome, It does wonders for my soul!
First off, I would like to express my deepest
admiration and respect to the men and woman
Of our Armed Forces- Some gave all!
Secondly to the rest of us, thank you for being....
You have no idea the Pandoras box you opened
inviting me to ask questions! I'm one of those who
Have to know a system from the ground up.
Presently I'm looking for a 40' Fifth Wheel, preferably
Under 20,00.00k if possible. Before I mention the one
I had in mind, I'm aware they've had some issues as far
as quality goes in past years. I will ask this in the proper
venue so I don't start off on the wrong foot. Thank you all!
Have a healthy and safe Holiday season
(I'm even politically correct..... Sometimes!)
