    gypsy family (full time) 311bhs hello all

    We are a full time family of four. After 18+ years in sales and marketing I (Michael) put my wife through Nursing. Now we have switched roles; I am the house husband, homeschooler and Kris is a travel nurse. We have stayed in over 18 states (only staying at least week counts toward putting a sticker on our map) and been to both oceans and Canada. I found this forum when we learned that our basic battery could not keep up with our boondocking. When I searched for replacing this acid beast with 2 lithium, this forum had the most comprehensive DIY threads- about exactly, what I want to accomplish. So here we are

    Welcome to the family! You can create a signature block with your RV and tow vehicle information (see mine below). That way you won't have to repeat that information whenever you post or ask a question. You can create a signature by going to:

    Forum Actions (on menu bar) -> Edit Profile -> Edit Signature (under My Settings on the left)

    Happy travels (from a retired Army nurse),

    We choose well. We have 2, 12 year old twins and they have their own room, bathroom, TV, and an xbox. This made moving them into a RV from a ‘sticks & bricks’ easy, and to them better; as they did not have a TV nor a game center in their old room (we have control to turn off the circuit, it works well). Our room is at the far end of the rig, separate bathroom, shower that we can close off. This set up allows us to have space and privacy we did not see in any class-A.

    second chance -
    thank you - I am going to try that.
    P.S. is there a way to reply to a comment directly - as you see, I am just putting the name at the top.

    You can use reply with quote as I did, or mention them by using the @ symbol and it will let the person know they are mentioned , @WanderingFossans
