We both have jobs, and we plan to pull this thing around all summer (I'm a teacher, she works from home) - just need help to get through the winter. Little things are stumping us. Once I'm shown, I know what to do. For instance, it sucked trying to get the vent hood thing open because I didn't know what to do. It seems that from the factory they put this adhesive on it. I was pressing hard and scared to break it. We actually got in our truck and went by our dealer and asked to see how the vent a hood was supposed to work. Once I saw it, I got an exacto knife and removed the junk that was put there by the factory and got it open.
You guys would have all laughed at us trying to get this thing off the hitch. I finally figured out the release (I just didn't know how to do it). I'll never forget now.
We bought a truck and rv the same day, and gave up our month to month apartment. This is home now.
We can learn, and we are willing. Just need some common sense help with things. We are able to afford things, but are not rich (if that makes sense). We decided to do this in our 40's rather than get a house. So this was a pretty big deal for us.
Thanks everyone. Maybe we are crazy, but so be it we already did it, haha.
