Fulltimer, hello to all

Been a fulltimer for 15 years now, even though i still work full time. just prefer living in my Jayco.

Can get a little tricky up here in Ontario Canada during the winter months, but I make out okay. Not uncommon for -25 celcuius weather for up to six weeks at a time. I park beside my shop where I do heavy truck repairs and some rv work too. Handy being close to work and the summer months I usually travel around the local area within 100 miles or so. Did the seasonal camping for years, but grew out of that and prefer now to be away from the crowd. Seasonal is okay, but you see the same people day in and day out and I prefer to go to a new campground and meet new people.

This is my second Jayco product, I can say with absolute certainty, that my unit is no problem in the deep cold as long as a few things are looked after. I can burn at times, 100 pounds of propane in under 3 days.

Looking forward to participating here on the forum.

Thanks for the welcome. Yea been at it awhile, pretty much went through everything I suppose, even a fifth wheel fire few years back where we lost everything.
There's a method to the madness, disturb the method and the madness begins.
