    Thanks!


    Since you are thinking about purchasing a four year old motor home, finding an independent RIVA certified mechanic to inspect it for you would be a good idea.  I think Google could come up with one in your area.

    I just joined FMA and in filling out the profile, I'm having trouble with a few of the fields, namely: Organization, FMA ID and New field. I don't know what is required for these three. What organization? Is the FMA ID the number at the top of the profile page. What "New field" would fit here? I didn't put anything in either of these fields since I didn't know what was desired.

    Appreciate any help. I don't want to get started on the wrong foot.

    Alan Ford,

    It is not necessary for you to fill out " organization, FMA Nr or new field". Some members put in the organization such as FMCA if they belong are maybe another organization. The membership chair will assign the FMA Nr and enter it in your profile. The new field is there if the association wants to add a new field. In reviewing your profile in the data base you entered all the information you need to.

    Membership Chair

    HI all, looking of advice on the best roof resurfacing material? Has anyone use "The roofman" mobile services. Apparently these folks will come to RV owner and perform work on location. Thanks appreciate your feedback.

    We own a 2017 Storm. The earlier Storm is rather cheaply constructed and the compartments open up rather than out which inconvenient for loading and unloading. Also try to avoid a on demand water heater as they are cantankerous at best.

    my advise is to spend as much as you can afford initially and get more Motorhome. Buying a cheaper rig will disappoint.

    If there is a loft above the driver area make sure if you can drive with the loft in the down position or at lease half way down. You can 't store anything on it if it has cabinets built under it and the cabinets come down with the loft and blocks the windshield. I want to be able to store totes onto of the loft while driving.

    Look on your counter top, is there space for a coffee maker and maybe a toaster? Do you want a 2/way fridge (electric/propane) or a residential fridge electric only? washer and dryer? if you get a washer and dryer do you loose your pantry then where will you store your dry/can foods. Are the awning lights mounted on the outer end of the awning or on the outside wall. Lights on the end of the awning can only be used when the awning is out all the way. Does everyone friends foe have to walk thru the bedroom to get to the bathroom? How many overhead kitchen cabinets do you have for dishes, 1, 2 or 3?

    Can you see the tv from all seating positions? 

    Is the RV 30amp or 50amp? always make sure you have 2 AC's, these A/C's are not as efficient as your stick built home, in area's where temps could reach over 100 degrees one AC will not keep you cool.

    Do your research on your particular RV on "www.rvtrader.com" and check pricing. Might be worth driving a 1000 miles to save $10 grand.

    Have a 2015 Fleetwood Storm. Having a issue with the grey water tank sending units. The light panel will show full when I know the tank is maybe half full. trying to make sense out of this. Any ideas? 

    Your sensors are probably dirty, its the most common problems with blank tank not getting flushed out properly and not using the right chemicals to break down the debris. Make sure the tank is full or almost full when you dump so the water surge with force debris out of the tank. Sometimes the debris will build up in the tank and also sticking to the sensors indicating full tank. It's a lot of work and patients to keep everything clean down there. Most folks just give up and dump when they hear the toilet bubbling.
