Talking New Contributor with younger kids

I've had my RV - 2011 Jayco Jayflight - 26BH for about 3 year, bought it used but previous owner only had it for a year and a half or so, needless to say I got it in good shape.

Married, two young kids, almost 3 and almost 1, so we make the most of our weekends. We live in Burney, Ca so we have access to many great USFS, PG&E and many other campgrounds within an hour of where we live. We like to stay through Sunday night, and just leave early early Monday to get to work on time while still enjoying all of Sunday.

I've been reading these forums for a while now and have learned a lot and after 3 years of RVing, feel like I'm finally ready to start giving back. I'm a little bit of a tech guru so I understand basic electricity and am good at being efficient, thus making the most of dry camping, and have managed to even convince my wife that it's possible to shower with a trickle.

I look forward to future participation in these forums and seeing what I can share with other new members like myself.

PS I don't usually post in forums but I'll do my best to respect proper formatting and structure and apologize ahead of time if I mess something up early on.

I have one suggestion, put your rig details in your signature, IE tow vehicle/engine description and your trailer details. That way when you post, it give details to the readers for perspective.

There is no "format" per se, you are welcome to contribute where you wish

I actually took the time to scan through the terms for the site and remember reading that... just forgot to actually do it. Thanks for reminding me.
