Newbie w/XLR

Hello from Minnesota,

After many months of research, going to RV shows, visiting dealers, and reading waves of information on this and other wife and I purchased a 2015 XLR Thunderbolt 340x12 toy hauler in December. The dealer is winter storing the unit for us, and we are anxiously waiting for spring to arrive here in the mid-west!

I'd like to thank the members of this forum for posting a wealth of knowledge for rookies and first-timers like me. There hasn't been a topic or question that I've not been able to find a practical or real life experience answer.

Thank you, and I hope to pay it forward someday by contributing with my experiences.
