New ,ACE 30.3 owners

Hello everyone. My name is Wayne Roe and my wife, Jo, and I are new 2017 ACE 30.3 owners and also new RVers. I am a two-time retiree. I retired from the Air Force in '96 and then worked 20 years for a government contractor and retired from that in '16. Jo is a retired counselor (individual, family, marital); however she stills counsels me several times per day . We have made one short 2.5 day functional check flight trip to a campground 40 miles from home and now planning a longer trip in late August or early September. We will be towing our 2016 Kia Sorento on a Master Tow 80THD dolly. Maybe we will see some of you out on the road and in the campgrounds.

Greetings, we're Bob and Linda from West Virginia. Just purchased our first MH, a 30.4 ACE. We're looking forward to traveling as much as possible during our sunset years. Some aspects of owning a MH are overwhelming especially getting familiar with all of the various systems. Would appreciate getting some of your favorite websites that list campgrounds locations so we're can start planning adventures. We're excited to get on the road and Blessed to part of this special group.

I joined Good Sam. They have a real good online trip planner and you can find campgrounds all over. Good Sam, Public or Private. Highly recommend it. Best part is it's really cheap like $27.00 a year or less.

Congrats on your new purchase, hope all works well.

Welcome Steamboat. Glad to have you on board. The wife and I are also looking to get the traveling done in our golden years that we've missed before. During my military career, we drove past all the exit signs for really neat sounding places rushing from one assignment to the next. Want to take those exits now and visit as many of those places as possible.

I grew up 60 miles from where West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky come together.

Thanks Wayne. Traveled through your home area bringing the ACE back from London, Kentucky. Thanks for your service, Vietnam era vet myself. Hope our paths meet someday.

My brother and sister-in-law did some shopping at an RV dealer in London, ended up buying in Ashland, KY.

Since you are a Vietnam era vet we must have started about the same time. I originally enlisted in March 1966, had an almost four year break in service, went back to college, then came back in through OTS in late '73.

Steamboat, I'm glad to see there are still some people around who went in the Air Force before me.😊 My first four years were spent on the flight line as an avionics tech, worked on the F-4 weapons control systems. When I returned after college, I was a B-52 navigator, then held a few staff positions until I retired.

We were originally from West Virginia. Born and raised about 20 miles south of Huntington. We moved to Nashville about 7 yrs ago. Small world lol!

new member/pictures needed

Good afternoon everyone! i am a new owner of a 2012 thor daybreak 30fs. i was wondering if anyone could send me a picture of the interior, specifically the wall were the monitor board is next to the bathroom door. I bought my rig as a salvage, that wall caught fire and i am trying to figure out all the switchs. I have a new monitor panel coming from thor but i need a good pic of the approx location. Also need to know what switchs are there and were they go. I know theres a slide switch and a light switch, something else is there as well. thanks!!
