My name is Cathy I am new to this forum

In fact I have never been a member of a forum before. A few weeks ago I purchased a 26' Sunline Solaris. I plan on going full time RVing. I think this forum looks interesting and I am interested in meeting new people and getting tips and advice. Glad to be part of your group. I am trying to figure out how this forum stuff works I hope I posted this to the right place

Hello Poppy and Nana and Tweety
It is nice to be part of an active forum. You all seem so nice.
My trailer is a 26" Solaris. Just perfect for me and my little dog (toy poodle) Emma.
I am not exactly sure of my travel plans but I am thinking in January, I will be tired of the cold weather and in search for warmer weather.
I am on the look out for a used little rv generator. If anyone has some advice on the size, model and so forth your advice will be appreciated.
Bye for now.

Cathy - what do you plan on using the generator for? I for one can tell you not to waste your money on the "cheap" generators....we had a Coleman and after one use gave it to the kids for use at their house and bought two Honda 2000ie's....The noise of the Coleman was terrible......I also hear that the Yamaha's are good genies also, and not loud!

Post what you plan on using it for and I'm sure you will get many replys....

Thanks for the advice. I will be using it to run the appliances in the trailer when I am not hooked up to electricity.

If you are not running your A/C a 2000 watt is fine. There are several 2000 watt inverter generators on the market from around $600 to $1,000 the Honda gets all the attention but I would not turn up my nose at a Kipor or even a Ryobi for a good bit less money you do pay for the quiet there are $180 generators on the market that work fine but you'll need ear plugs. Welcome to the site there are a lot of good people that can help you out with any questions you might have.

Hello Cathy. Great to have another Sunline in Ky. We found Diane's T-1950 in Tenn last month and brought it home to Ky. Hope you enjoy yours and much as my wife and I do ours.

Thanks to everyone for your welcomes and advice.
I am looking at some discount membership clubs like Good Sams club, if I go full time I will be on a budget. I found this websites that claims to have camp sites for 10.00 Discount Campgrounds As Low As $10.00 A Day but I don't know if they are for real.
Looks like most sites are around 25.00-30.00 a night unless I stay long term a month or so. Does anyone have any advice about the discount membership clubs. Looks like many of them have block out dates, weekends and holidays. On the west coast the national forests let people dry camp along rivers and such not in campgrounds you can stay for free for approx. 14 days in most national forest. Is there anything like that in the midwest or southern states. I have a ? about state parks are they usually less expensive and do they have length restrictions.I will read everything I can on this forum and others to learn about full time rving before I head out.
I'll tell you the gas is a killer my truck only gets about 8 miles to a gallon while towing. 2000 Dogde Ram 1500 WD 5.9 liter engine. Does anyone have any tips on how to get better gas mileage.
Bye for now.
ps I look forward to catching up with some of you, I will keep an eye on your calender of events.
