Welcome to the forums!
What running gear does it have? You will need a 30 amp RV outlet to plug into your house, it is 120 volt, do not hook it up to the dryer outlet.
We all like pictures around here, so when you get a chance, be sure to post some so we can oooh and aaah over them.
About the name. Once a cat adopted me, she wouldn't go away for anything, I wound up naming her Freebie...

some people have all the luck. too bad I'm a Trailer person, so can't help.

Welcome! You'll find your sailboat knowledge will help a lot, except you don't have to do the three-step pump for the toilet!

Zep, wish you mentioned that about the toilet wonder my neighbors get upset at me for installin a marine toilet in my A.S.

jahawks, Welcome aboard! I'm just a trailer guy too, but there are plenty of M.H folks here. No worries though, does not seem to be any rift between the two...ya know, like between boaters with smoak pots or rag boats

How long was your noew rig sitting? Good thing about being free is you have plenty of room for repairs and refab. Sounds like you have a good start. Tires if it has been sitting long. The rest pne step at a time.

What town in Maine is the Excella located? If you are located in the area between Kittery and Portland, we would be happy to stop by at some point to give you a hand.
