Newbies in the SF Bay Area
I've been reading these forms for several months now, and finally joined when we started the paperwork for a 2017 FC 26U Queen. We pick it up next weekend!
My husband is a nurse at a great hospital in an area where we could never afford to buy/rent, and I'm about to start a 3 year nursing program! We've looked at AS off and on for years, starting with Bambi etc. with camping in mind and eventually landing on the 26U for part-time living.
We'll be in a long term site with full hook ups for the first couple of years, and planning to travel more in the future. We're complete newcomers to the AS/RV world, so I'm planning on reading, watching videos, and asking questions for years to come.
Initial questions: I've read a lot about the initial care and maintenance when traveling, and some of that will certainly apply. Are there any major things to consider about maintaining the AS while parked for 6+ months at a time at a full hook up site. We'll be just off the San Francisco Bay so we're getting an initial protective coat, planning to rinse off periodically, and planning to service and wax approximately every 6 months. Any huge issues I might be missing? Tire care? Macerating toilet issues?
Thanks for all your warmth and input. I'm excited to join the community! We're adventurers at heart, ready to love the joy and challenge of the process!
