Made a couple trips to the storage place this weekend, slowly getting stuff cleared out. Will be glad when over. My target date is in May sometime. Then full-time in the rig, "holy cow" this is happening quick. Understand what Howard and Linda say about emotions. Mine run at times too, wondering if I am making the right decision etc. That is why the storage, besides we have a house on the ranch in SD, so if I decide to move into it I will have that capability. However when I retire, my plans are to be in the southern part of the country. If anyone has endured a SD winter, you will understand why.
Not a lot to report, just keep plugging away and taking life a day at a time. Besides got the rig in the shop, getting some mods to the cabinets and warranty work done. Wonder why the builders go with such cheap products. Had to replace the fireplace, now the ceiling fan. Made in China. Don't get me started. It has to make dealers frustrated as well, think of the time and cost for them to do warranty work. I do understand if they get cranky as well. They want so sell a good product and would rather not see it in the shop all the time. Then we wonder why the prices keep climbing. I will nitpick on warranty items, the cost we pay for this equipment is just too high to ignore the problem.
My dealer "Wichita RV" has been absolutely great on fixing any problems I have had and I know I am not alone here. Just hope when I start living in it full time I won't have toooo many problems. But we all know that issues come up and we deal with them as they arrive. I understand that after being around airplanes, farm equipment, motorcycles, etc. it comes with the beast. I know a number of others experience problems as well. However, a good feeling is that we have a great suppport network of other RV'ers out there.
One of the best sources for information is Howard and Linda's site http://www.rvdreams.com/. Check this site out and you will see what I mean. They have really put a lot of effort here. They along with Ed and Marilyn have been a great inspiration and support for me and I thank all of you for that. Ok, enough of a rant, but sometimes this "cat" has to get if off his chest. Then he will be in a better mood to enjoy what I see as a wonderful lifestyle.
