Greetings from Canada!

Hi all.

I'm new to this forum, and completely new to RV'ing. I've been planning to get something for years now, and finally took the plunge this spring by buying a 2005 Four Winds Majestic.

My wife and I are very excited to get out in this, having booked our first camping weekend fairly close to home so if we have any problems, we won't be too far away.

It seems to be in fairly good shape, and it has passed all the tests including propane, etc, but when I picked it up from the propane certification, the guy said the paint on the tank should be touched up as it had been chipped from gravel off the front wheels, and rust was evident.

I'm going over to the C Class areas to ask a question re: protecting my propane tank from corrosion.

TIA, Mike

Welcome to the forum and to RVing. Lots to learn, lots of mistakes to make and scratches seem to appear from nowhere. Stick with this forum as there are loads of knowledgeable people years of experience. Good luck but mainly have FUN.

Welcome to FRF!

Just be aware that your Four Winds is not a Forest River product, so you may not get info about your specific RV.
but any general RV subject will find you plenty of members willing to help.

The FW looks very much like one of the FR products, and the manual on the FR site does look very close too. The trailer place which checked it over for us suggested this site for the manual and forums.

But I'll keep your advice in mind. Thanks.

Mike

90% of the stuff on your RV is going to be the same as on an FR RV, so only questions related to how Thor slapped the generic bits together may be met with crickets.

Welcome from southern Ontario.
