More 1st-Time Owners Here!

We're Leo and Jeannette...bought a 1994 T-1850 Sunline a few months ago and finally used it two weekends ago. Great time!

We discovered that I (Jeannette) am a bit uncomfortable with the mechanics of the camper (hooking up to truck, the sewer/water/electric hookups, etc.) we worked out a natural solution. Leo is in charge of all that, and I am happily in charge of food (buying, storing, cooking, cleaning). It worked out great! Especially, when the toilet started! But he gets three meals served to him without complaint.

Anyway, Leo wanted to join this forum so he could learn from others about the technical stuff. And maybe I'll learn some secrets to dealing with food in a camper (e.g., the fridge froze the fresh produce; I had to pull everything out to find what I wanted; I'm concerned about mice and ants (have never dealt w/mice in real life before); is a worm compost a stupid idea?)

Hope to become virtual campers with you all! And just maybe...a meet/greet event...

Hi Leo and Jeannette - welcome to the will find this to be one of the most friendliest forums to be on.....some of us were former Sunline owners - now we are know as SOB's (Some Other Brand) members.

Tell Leo not to be afraid to ask any question he may have - for we all feel the same that the only dumb question is the one not asked.

Good luck with your new to you Sunny!

Hello Neighbors!! Well, maybe not neighbors but we are close. We are on the CT/RI border. I'm new to this forum but not to campers. This is our 3rd since 2001. We've got a 26' 2000 Sunline Solaris, not sure what the number scheme is and need to find the leak in the roof that caused some damage to my walls in the rear and the floor that I had already fixed in 2005 when we got it. As for mice, I've had good luck with dryer sheets. At the end of the season, I use about a box of 40 and put them in every draw and cabinet and haven't had an issue. You can PM with questions and I'll see if I can answer them or just post them to the forum. Also, post some pics of your camper. I have to dig mine out and will do the same.

All the best! Steve

Hi and welcome !

Do post any questions at all. We have received lots of good advice from the members of this forum.

There is a New England Meet and Greet each year in August. And one coming up in Sept. in Western NY and then in the Adirondacks late Sept. Do keep in mind, if not this year, perhaps next.

What is the question regarding worm compost. I used to have several bins and might be able to help you out.

Welcome! Pretty darn exciting, isn't it! Lol! We bought ours a couple of weeks ago so most of my time has been spent here, You Tube, Amazon, Google, and at the local trailer stores. Not to mention cleaning and trying out everything in the camper while it sits in the driveway. Sound familiar to you? Now I can't wait to get home from work to see if the new awning cover has been delivered! It's Christmas in August!
I'm sure you guys have been somewhat the same, so post up some pics and get busy asking questions. I imagine the folks on here have seen just about everything and can help and the rest of us really enjoy reading and learning!

Anything stored near the fins in the fridge could possibly freeze. That is the coldest part of fridge.

Leo and Jeannette, check and see if there is a plastic clip on the right side of the fridge fins, slide it up for colder, down for warmer(at least that's the theory). East Coast , your discovery process is the same one I'm going thru, very exciting indeed!Lots of practice in the drive way.
