Newbies checking in from San Diego
Hi! We're Judy and Jon, newbie owners of a 2021 Leisure Travel Van Wonder RTB, our first RV ever. We're just getting our feet wet with our new RV and the lifestyle in general. We are a couple in our 60s, not retired yet but self-employed, and are getting a crash course in both boondocking and camping at campgrounds with hookups. We spent 4 days on the road after picking up our new baby in Northern CA – two at Harvest Hosts and two at campgrounds – with lots of "learning experiences" (aka mistakes we learned from), all of them very valuable. These included a mostly sleepless night due to battery low voltage issues, and my husband scooping out the toilet with plastic bags (to dump in a jiffy john) when it refused to flush. A sense of humor has been a great ally on this journey.
We know we still have a lot to learn! We're going to another Harvest Host nearby (a winery) in about 10 days, and are looking for relatively short trip recommendations for us to spend a night or two here and there to keep learning before a big 16 day trip we have planned to South Dakota this summer. We look forward to interacting on this forum!
