I know that Capn Morgan is basically at ground zero in Wyoming for this thing. hope he will get some nice pics.

We are going to be stuck at Loveland Lazy Days, this week, getting a rather nasty leak fixed in the Dancer's overcab.

Place a steel 50 gallon drum under each corner or several good pallets stacked on top of one other.

So here is my 3 cents worth of info. I am an older disabled single woman so being able to rv by myself was important. I had thought about  truck/trailer combo but I can't back up anything to save my life and also I wanted to be able to access the kitchen/bathroom etc without getting in and out of a vehicle especially after dark. So that left one of the ABC's. My first rv was a B+ 07 Cambria which was nice but had some issues. As far as living in it I felt it would not be a good choice for any length of time because it had a dinette and a corner bed and they are a pain in the butt to get in and out of not to mention making it. I consider the overhead loft beds to be useless when you get older because no one in my age group or there abouts would want to or could climb the ladder, they are good for storage however!  I then went to a class A. The first one (winnebago vista lx 27N)  I had about a year and ended up being a lemon (and yes it qualified under the lemon law). Now I have a Winnebago vista lx 30T and for me it is perfect. I went into it thinking that if I had to give up the house  could I live in it comfortably, i.e. the buffet/chairs and a sleeper sofa vs the dinette. That alone made a huge difference for me.  Of course living full time would mean getting rid of a lot of stuff ::) The things I considered when selecting this model was the length (31ft) for traveling ,parking etc. Another main factor was the layout. This one was better than the first class A (the 27N) because I could access the bathroom and bed without having to put out the slide if necessary. It has plenty of storage inside and out (that can be a factor to look at if full timing.). Another key factor was the ease of being able to set up by myself.  I have found that there are a lot of really nice fellow rvers and you can find help just about anywhere you go, and that can be a huge plus if you have a handicap and find doing things to be a challenge if you are having a flare up. I tow a small car behind and am able to hook it up etc. I got the braking system that you just flip a switch rather than fool with a bulky box thingie for your brakes. It was those little details that I looked real closely at and talked with others about. Yes it may have cost a bit more but it is a very easy system to use. I did a lot research before ending up with this combo I have now which I can't stress enough for you to do a lot of researching so you can figure out what would work best for you. Floor plans will be a major concern if you are going to full time it so make sure you visualize how you will spend your evenings etc (hobbies that take up some space) etc and then check everything out, sit on the toilet , go through the motions, stand in the shower, go through the motions you would when showering etc so you can tell if it would work okay for you. I have to say that is the one thing I don't like about my rig is that the shower is too small but because everything else was perfect on the rig  I am working around the shower issue.

Tech Talk / Re: Installing 14-50R NEMA RV receptacle

Maybe redundant, but we have a wiring diagram in our forum library for various types of receptacles, including 14-50R.

When we had our dock behind the house wired with two 14-50R receptacles, I warned the electrician that I'd chop his fingers off if he plugged our boat in before I verified that he'd wired them correctly.

Never heard of such however you might have a loose connection. Check the control board and wires. Even on LPG, it needs 12 volts to run.

Lots of excellent advise above.

Living full time in an RV is NOT cheap, but it MAY be cheaper than rent.

Whatever you buy, FLOOR PLAN is the most important consideration.  You will be stuck in here full time!  Is the shower big enough?  Is the kitchen fully workable for you?  Is there a comfortable seat for reading, watching TV or doing what YOU enjoy doing?  Is the bed comfortable?  Easy to get into and out of?  Is there sufficient storage space?  These are questions only you can answer.

A Class B or B+ is a passenger van with a SMALL house replacing the seats behind the driver.  They often have limited storage, small showers and small holding tanks.

Class C is a truck based van with a house behind the driver.  These often have slide outs to make more space for added comfort.  It is still small enough for most folks to be comfortable driving.

Class A is the classic shape big RV, although they come in several sizes.  Most come with a host of amenities standard that are optional or not available on Class C and B units, like power steps, auto leveling, walk around beds, generators, and storage space.

Both Class A or C can tow a small or mid size car for local travel.

Do lots of reading and research before spending your hard earned money so you may be able to get it right the first time!

Are you able to stack wood blocks? Back in the day, I used to stack 8"x8" wood blocks laid on their side.

Food For Thought:

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally, you live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to get your parentís permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion, you live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book, but not to vote who runs the government, you live in a country run by idiots.

If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy leaders in Egypt, you live in a country run by idiots.

If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat, you live in a country run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman can be strip-searched by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched, you live in a country run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more, you live in a country run by idiots.

If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is cute, but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable, you live in a country run by idiots.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing and free cell phones, you live in a country run by idiots.

If the governmentís plan for getting people back to work is to incentivize NOT working with 99 weeks of unemployment checks and no requirement to prove they applied but cannot find work, you live in a country run by idiots.

If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more safe according to the government, you live in a country run by idiots.

Did a bit of research on the fluid level and it seems perhaps mine is overfilled since it is above the edge of the red cap. This could have caused the issue, huh?

I may go ahead and lift up the front of the rig on the hydraulics, spin the wheel so the drain plug is pointed down, then let off a bit of fluid so it is below that cap. Perhaps it'll solve the issue. Thoughts?
