Hello from central WV

Hello all,
Have been a recent member of Bought a 1989 Barth 31' coach on e-bay. It was located in N. Myrtle Beach, SC.
To make a long story short, on the way home, in Mt. Airy, NC, it caught fire and burned to the frame. Never made it home with it. Luckily, noone was hurt. Insurance paid off the entire amount. Wife did not want another RV, although she was not riding with me, but following in her car, because of the horrific experience.
Started looking for a travel trailer. Thought I wanted a bunk house, since we have 7 grandchildren, and we looked at several. Finally I asked myself how many times they would go camping with us since they live out of state. We settled on something with enough room to entertain a few people or have a small bluegrass jam. Looked at a lot of campers on e-bay and RVtrader online. Found a 2007 Rockwood 8296SS that really suited our needs. Went to Ohio and looked at it and bought it on the spot. Got it home, no fire this time, and getting it "fixed up" with our things.
Having trouble finding where the fresh water tank drain is, and as others on this site in other threads, with the media center (TV).
Looking forward to meeting some of you this summer and through posts. I live right beside Route 19 just north of Summersville, WV.
