FMCA @ Perry, GA, 3/14/18

We’re still trying to figure out this RV’ing thing. There are a lot of balls to keep in the air when you’re tooling around in a 40 foot house on wheels. Plumbing systems, electrical systems, propane, AC, furnaces, etc…. Not to mention the care & feeding of an 8.9 litre, 380 HP diesel engine, 6 speed Allison transmission, air brakes, air bags and on and on. This learning curve we’re facing is one of the reasons we were looking forward to the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA) Convention that just wrapped up in Perry, Georgia. We spent 8 days taking classes, attending seminars, cruising vendor booths and meeting lots and lots of nice people.

We pulled away this morning much smarter then when we arrived. Who knew, for instance, that under normal wear and tear the brakes on our Class A coach will last its lifetime? I learned how to change the air filter on the coach. We found a bunch of items that we’ll end up getting (I’m looking at you, WiFiRanger) and were able to research a bunch of others. I got the representative from my tire pressure monitor system to come out and troubleshoot my problem (thanks, TST, for getting me working). And we had a great time with new friends (hi Tim & Beth, we’ll see you soon).

Probably the most important thing that I’m taking away from this trip is the confirmation of just how much I’m enjoying the whole RV process. I like driving it and setting it up as much as I like seeing the sights and meeting new people. This 2 week trip will be tough to come back from. We’re already looking forward to next time.
