Today's News: 18 April 2015 2015:
We are back in
the RV community with a new to us 2003 Sunnybrook 2850SL in perfect condition! I decided to keep my short bed 2006 Dodge
Ram 2500 quad cab (4 full size doors) diesel truck with the quiet Cummins. Instead of going to one of the heavy
and expensive slider hitches I went with the Andersen Ultimate Hitch. This one is amazing because it sets back the trailer
just enough to do a 90░ under it, yet hooks up almost instantly to the already installed gooseneck.
are problematic when using adapters that create a lever multiplying the forces on the frame of trailers not designed or gusseted
for the extra forces, and directions of the forces that gooseneck trailers require.
I got mine from the original purchaser, who bought the wrong one for his recessed gooseneck
but the exact one for mine, for 1/3 of the price new.
New friends and old! Expect the unexpected here. My warped sense of humor is thrown in for good
measure along with the serious side of RVing, and now stationary life. Yes we came off the road to be close to aging
parents, and one day will rejoin you hopefully again.
Our RV and non-RV articles, and other
things of interest, are getting uploaded as time permits . There are another 1000 articles that need to be edited,
updated, and uploaded that are already written. Bringing them up to date takes a lot more time than I thought! Technology
is changing so fast, that by the time I get them updated they'll be out of date! Accck! No worry. We'll
keep them as current as is possible with your help, corrections, and comments. Check back for new articles as I am working
them as fast as I can. Do check the Web Site Use policy and disclaimers if you like a good parody that still works!
It's on the menu to the left.
If you are curious about what we are doing now, and the life of a fulltime RVr we'll share what we know with you here.
A fulltime RVr is someone who sells everything that won't fit in an RV, including the house! Why? Well, to
travel the US, Canada, and Mexico, in a palace on wheels. We've been there, done that, for 7 years after retiring from
the US Air Force. I just checked and we have been off the road 10 years now! I already had a second career and
retired from that!
RVing was a dream come true, but not without some challenges. Our newsletters, technical articles, pictures, and
the tips and tricks we learned along the way are all here. We've sure had our share of challenges!
So browse around our virtual campfire. We hope you enjoy your visit as I start the task of updating the pages
As always, Safe Travels!
