Thumbs up Joined today

Good evening!

I'm new to the forum, though I have read posts on here as a guest since buying my 2018 Salem 32bhds in June. I'm excited to learn from everyone here & fine tune my RV life skills. Before this June, I had no experience in RV. I have the Salem in a darling park space with full hookups.

I was previously stuck in (rising rent) apartment life with absentee property management and declining work-life balance, but everything shifted when I gave notice, bought an RV Trailer, and moved 600 miles back to where I lived as a kid. Now I am paying into my own equity, landed the best job I've ever had in a field I love, and got reconnected with my heritage.

I'm looking forward to the meeting of minds and skills, here! Happy holiday season to you & stay warm.

Congrats on your life changes and welcome aboard.

There’s tons of help here, and if you have questions specific to your Salem, there is a sub forum listed down the left side. If however you’re asking about operations or specific appliances, make sure to provide that specific info because accessories can vary even amongst Salem units.

Thank you guys for the welcome

I am hoping to do some DIY renovation regarding the 'furniture' in here and more so customizing how the spaces are utilized.

Happy Holidays everyone.
