New RV'r from Central Florida

Hello all,

I am a soon to be nearly retired RN from Central Florida.

Over the past 12-13 years I have been fortunate enough to ride my motorcycle through 44 of the lower 48 states, Alaska, and 8 Canadian Provinces, often camping along the way.

Because of a bad back, my wife (DW I guess from here forward), has been unable to accompany me since 2012. Through my travels, every time I saw an RV going the opposite direction, I would imagine how much fun it would be to have an RV and travel North America with my wife (and grandkids, of course).

This past summer, after a motorcycle to trip to Newfoundland-Labrador and Nova Scotia, I decided it was time to stop dreaming and start looking.

The result,
we are now the proud owners of a new-to-us 2017 Jayco 29XK!

The previous owner knew next to nothing about the rig, so I have already made great use of this forum for information such as; how to bypass the hot water heater for sanitizing the FW tank, locating the inverter, and much more. Many thanks already!

BTW, it turned out the GFCI on the inverter was tripped, so that was an easy fix. AND, my inverter just happens to power the TV, AND the TV outlet in the bedroom, an unexpected bonus. From what I understand, on most Jayco coaches, the inverter powers the forward TV and nothing else.

We have our first trip planned to Blue Springs State Park December 12th and 13th, about 8 miles from our house. From what I've heard, it pays to not be too ambitious on the first departure from your own driveway.

And, thanks in a large part to this forum, I can say that "all systems are go" as far as the rig is concerned.

Thanks again, Merry Christmas, and Happy Travels!

And just to clarify my own post, we purchased a Jayco Redhawk 29XK. I previously posted just Jayco 29XK.
