Wow, that was a really long post!
Welcome to IRV2.
I'm sure you'll find a wealth of information here. The folks on this site are pretty knowledgable about things and more than happy to help a fellow RVer out. Please feel free to share any experiences you may have. I'm sure you'll make a few friends on this site.
Another good idea is to go to your profile and add some lines in the signature section. That way others will know what kind of RV you have.
Again, welcome, and enjoy the site.
