Wow, little did I know. There is a 3 hour long course in how to operate a RV, and a hot line for when you forget how to do it. And manual books that will take up all the room I had saved for a library.
Buying new stuff is always fun, and I just ordered a few top books from Amazon.com. I skipped the RV for Dummies, just can't get past the name and have never purchased and "Dummy" book. Actually I know an author of one of them, and he is truly a dummy, so they are not kidding and I am not that dumb.
For the RV everything has to be mini sized. There are very neat collapsible bowls, and I have an old set of Correll very tightly fitting dishes, but really want new jungle theme ones. Seems like I can get lots of items but not in my jaguar or leopard print.
I'll be sending photos soon, and warming up the generator.

Well, it's official. We are the proud owners of a 37' long Forest River Georgetown XL triple slide Recreational Vehicle.
I have wanted one for years, but Ron adamantly refused because of a nightmare trip in a tow behind tin can that belonged to his buddy in 1906, or some time a long time ago. He went to the races and hated it, so decided he was much too good for "camping".
Took me 10 years!!! But I got it, sooner or later - and well I guess the 5 years we spent aboard the condo ship "The World" doesn't really count.
I am planning to learn how to be a RV'er, write it down for others, and start with touring the USA. Ron and I have visited over 125 countries in the world, but I havent' seen the 50 states - now we go on a land safari.
I'll keep you posted, the "BEAST" as I have named her, is being outfitted with an in motion satellite for Ron's football fetish, and a washer/dryer for my convinence. Only one problem remains, where in the heck is the dishwasher??? I forgot to ask, and I don't think I saw one! EEEEEK!
