RE: New to RV’ing....and might not last

It is good that the grandkids are excited about camping. Try to keep it fun but that does not necessarily mean waterparks and theme parks. We don't do commercial entertainment. The grandkids lost interest when they were in their early teens but have decided that it is really fun to be off the grid and away from civilization. We want the comfort of the RV but the great outdoors- UP Michigan types. Looking forward to skies without light pollution that I remember as a kid in nowhereville.

RE: New to RV’ing....and might not last

Understood on the 50amp being dual 110’s and not a dryer plug. Had a pro do the wiring. I am normally pretty handy but time can be an issue. Slowly but surely starting to figure this thing out. As to the locksmith, the door lock was picked in minutes. The deadbolt was the issue. Strange thing is, the fob now works. I am beginning to think some battery had run down inside the RV and not the fob. We now have plenty of keys so hopefully no more issues on that front. 400 mile round trip planned in two weeks So that should shake the bugs out and expose me to all I am learning on net and here. We are currently based in Southern Indiana. Rig is beautiful and grandkids excited. That alone is worth the effort. Thanks to all.

RE: New to RV’ing....and might not last

Amen on the happy wife. Thanks for all the responses. I may go the route of the service guy. Again I believe my investment was sound so I have some room for repairs and upgrades - I earmarked 10k even though all records indicate it is road ready. The tires are 2 years old with no wear. Aqua hot almost brand new. Generator has only 300 hours and the engine checked out. At least 1 of the ac units kicks out frosty air almost runs you out of the coach. Thanks again

New to RV’ing....and might not last

Wife convinced me an RV was a must have......and unfortunately my mantra is go big or go home.....ended up with a 12 year old 42 foot class A. Made every mistake possible in the purchase but bought it right so no harm. Owner had passed so no training on how to control anything. The unit was immaculately cared for and meticulous service records. Promptly got locked out and locksmith had to drill out the deadbolt. Can only assume it was slightly jiggered and engaged when the door slammed shut. Lost a hubcap on the maiden drive home. 2008 American Eagle 42F and any suggestions to help me get my arms around what buttons do what would be most appreciated. Ran the 50 amp plug to side of house today so at least it isn’t hot as Hedes while trying to figure things out. I think this may eventually be fun but right now it is almost overwhelming. A smaller less optioned unit is looking pretty attractive right now- as is the Holiday Inn
