RV Newbees Gary & Maggie

We are both retired. I tired twice, once from the Air Force in 1994, and second I medically retired myself from a Tech Support job in Jan 2022. Maggie is retired from being Mom, part time jobber, and Nana Day Care. Our first trip will be from Bryan, Texas, to Marysville, Tennessee, to be with Our son, Chris, and his family for winter. Chris retired from the Army in the spring of this year (2022).

Thank you. It is only by the grace of God that I have made it this far. We are VERY new to this adventure, and hope to gain a lot of wisdom from y'all's posts.
I'm going to try to get the info on our truck and RVs in the system.

My son, who lives in Maryville, is looking around for us. Hopefully, we will able to get our house here sold and move out there sometime in January for the winter. We will discuss places when we are there for Christmas. We may need some advice. Thank you for the offer.

Gary,
Your stats say you have a Jayco Eagle 5th wheel.
If you folks are really newbees, may I suggest that you hook her up in the driveway and "camp out" for a LONG weekend, use all the systems several times and get to know your unit, prior to hitting the road.
That way you'll not have bad surprises out where they become serious.

JMHO

Mike in Colorado

I tried to add stuff to the signature and got a message it was more than three lines and wouldn't accept it.

Yup, user CP will not take more than 3 lines.
Mine is kind of long but it says it all.

I'll try again. My info was about as much as yours, but I may have done a line feed or two.
