I am so new to RVing. My kids and I have kind of been forced into it. Not really complaining, though. It's kind of exciting.

At any rate, it's just me, the kids and our cat. Oh yes, and my son's 2 mice. We live in a motorhome we are purchasing and we are so green. But we're learning as we go.

I hope to meet many of you because I have a feeling I'll be asking a LOT of questions!!!

Have a fabulous day.
God bless

Hi Mom,

Welcome to the Forum! You have definitely come to the right spot to learn. What type of rig do you have? If you have not filled out your rig info in your profile please do since it helps people to answer specific questions.

This is an exciting life and you and the kids will make some amazing memories. Ask your questions and I am going to give you some advice I received that has helped us.

Get a water pressure valve and a in-line water filter. These can be purchased at Walmart for around $30 for both. CG's (campgrounds) tend to have high water pressure and can damage your plumbing and the water needs filtered in case they have any debree in their pipes.

Will you be staying at a CG or boon docking? There are threads and forums here on almost anything you need to learn. Just enter into the search engine what you want to know and you will find many responses.

Wishing you all the best. Lynne

Thank you for the warm welcome!! My kids and I are enjoying this little adventure, although we'll enjoy it even more when some of the big issues are taken care of. Right now it's quite stressful.

Thank you again!
God bless you
