Intro

Hi folks. Just bought a used camper. It's our first step into the world of RVing. I am going to ask a lot of dumb questions so please bear with me. a little bit about me, I live in Maine and drive an 18 wheeler for a living. I am getting ready to retire in March and cant wait to hit the road with this baby. I know you would think I ve seen all there is to see but all I get to see in the course of my job is the interstate.

Welcome aboard Bill!!
Ask what you want or need to. Somebody will have the answer.
Just remember, the only dumb question is the one you didn't ask.

Welcome aboard. Everyone is new to RV'ing at some point. I lived in Brunswick, ME for a few years with the Navy and loved the area.

Welcome Bill from just outside of San Antonio. This is where you will get all the answers you need. One thing that you have a leg up on, and that will be parking that big rig in a tight spot. We should all be that lucky. Enjoy and congrats on the rig and your retirement.

Travel well, travel safe,
Jim

The bigger the better. An old guy told me big moves make big problems. So slow and easy does it.
