thanks all. we are still a bit stunned that we got it. the extra 7-8 feet is only an issue when turning a corner and i have only clipped one curb....ha

the immensity of this baby is really quite astounding. our 38 footer feels like a compact car compared to it. it is very peppy and easy to drive. i have a few things i need to learn and fix yet.

the previous owner used a large attached tent/room instead of an awning. it did not come with the coach. it is tall enough to block out the sun so who needs an awning?

tomorrow i will put the 90 in a storage place so i can put this baby in the driveway and start updating and fixing stuff.

i know my 1990 inside and out and i guess it will take me a while to be that way with this one.

the tall ceiling is something i really like. i am tall and i still have a lot of room over my head. the slides sure give a spacious roomy area.

it has a rear bath and a half bath as well.

the air door is really cool. i just open and close it like a kid. i have to figure out how to reprogram the keypad at the entry. the fellow who delivered it didnt know the code.

Congratulations Tom! This does sound like a great new project for you and Darlene. The paint scheme looks nice as well.

I hope that the curbs in your neighborhood survive the learning curve.

Reprogramming is simple. Call Newell for the pin code that you use with the trigger pad inside the first cabinet below your door control panel inside. I did mine in two minutes.

i saw a programming switch inside that cabinet on the top, but there is no other pad.

we played with it for a while today and couldnt figure out how to get it to work.

can you outline the steps?

thanks

tom

What is it about us "guys"?.....we just want our stuff to work, and we will spend a lot of time fiddling with stuff that doesn't work, trying to get it to work right. When something isn't working we become mildly (I'm understating here) obsessed with it until we solve the problem, even to the point of waking up in the middle of the night and thinking about it. Personally, I've solved a number of these types of problems in the middle of the night....I do my best thinking after a few hours of sleep....haha! Once and a while I have to ask my wife for her perspective on a problem, and she usually has a completely different observation.

Ha, since Cindy has also retired and we are spending much more time together we both noticed how our brains work SO differently!
But it's been great so far, and will only get greaterrrr when we finally hit the road this spring.
(how come if I need one thing from the grocery I can be back home in 15 minutes and it takes Cindy over an hour????)

Forrest,

Maybe since you went to the grocery store you didn't get as many things as Cindy does when she goes and takes longer to buy more things! :-) And that is part of being a woman...we tend to shop more! LOL
