Hello from Tucson, new to the board!!!
 
Howdy, I'm Tank and live in Tucson, AZ. We moved here so I could retire from the USAF in '95.

After I retired, I worked for a few RV dealers here in Tucson, before going back to the DoD in search of a better living wage. While working on RV's I was allowed to take a few for a few days off, and advertise for the company. It worked out well, they got exposure, and I got a $275,000 motorhome to stay in.

Well, there is no way to go back to a tent after an American Eagle, so, we started with a pop up. I didn't sleep one night, and it went away. A 39' Gearbox replaced that, and it went away. We're on a 2003 Flair on a F53 chassis.

I just put new Alcoa wheels on it, then new tires, with Centramatic balancers. Man, it rides very smooth now, even up to 70. That's where I drew the line, and slowed back down.

All of that to say:
I hope that I can help members and add to this forum. I'm not here to impress anybody, I'm here to learn from y'all, and maybe help, if I have the knowledge on a few subjects.

Thanks for letting me join in on all the fun!!!
