Hi Eddie & Diann, Welcome to the forum. Everybody on here were newbies at one time and all had a learning curve as far as their RV be it new or used. We were newbies 7 short years ago and learned a lot about our 1st RV which was a 36ft gas Class A. We bought it new and pretty much did what you're planning currently, hitting the roads close to home, time and finances. Recently we did trade the gas for a used very well maintained 2010 Diesel Pusher and we are back learning about this one. Hubby will be retiring end of this year then our adventure really begins.
This is a great place to ask questions and get answers. Wish we had known about this forum back in 07. When asking questions try to give as much info as you can about your problem or issue.
Again welcome to the best and friendliest RV forum on the net. Enjoy your new addiction.
