THOR #20891
Hello from the Pacific Northwest

Hello,
Iíve already posted a few, so I thought I better introduce myself.

We have a Thor Omni RB34 on order, expect by year-end (hopefully). It wonít be our first RV. Weíre trading in a Thor Freedom Elite 26HE. Loved it, but hated the folding bed and weak gas power, hence the Omni. Also used to have a Ram 3500 diesel DRW with Northern Lite camper. We did lots of horse camping. Pulling the full horse trailer up the Cascades with the Ram spoiled me on the gas motorhome. Gotta have a diesel, not to mention the more comfortable truck cab.

Learned a lot dry camping with horses. 160w Zamp Solar, Deep Cycle 6v 250AH, Fantastic Fans, generators, water conservation. We no longer horse camp, but now have Golden Retrievers. Need extra couches/beds, and floor space.

Now grandchild in Arizona that weíll kidnap after Spring Training. Weíll spend summers in the northern mountains, springs & falls in Arizona. (Holidays are still home in Central Oregon). Still plan to drive east someday.

I know there is still much to learn about Trucks, Motorhomes, Equipment. Thatís why Iím here. Iím a career office boy, not enough dirt under my nails, so I hope to learn lots, if anything itís to know when to rely on professionals. (Finding a good RV Sales/Service organization has been a mission too).

I hope my questions wonít be too nuisance. Iím still ignorant on many technical things, but try not to be stupid.

Happy Trails, Be Safe out there.
Don

Hi Don!
So if you're no longer horse camping: does that mean that you are now "golden retriever" camping?
It seems that you have plenty of great stories to tell, and we'd love to hear them!

With horses and now Goldens, I do know about spring shedding. A hand held vac helps keep the RV loose hair somewhat under control. Shirts and sweaters are another thing...
