New to Us 34' Adventurer

Been RV'ing off & on for years. My better half fell in love with this 34" less than 2 weeks ago. Interior is extremely good shape for a 2001.

We're in Ctirus county FL & can work mobile most of the time.

Took our first outing last weekend taking her down to Bickleys RV Park in Seminole, FL & clocked 210 miles. It was a good time & nice park.

Uneventful except for a dish falling out of the cabinet breaking one the sink over Corian cutting board s.

Alot of little things to do but I've turned wrenches all my life & love to do it.

First major is evaluate the condition of the tires as they seem to have a little superficial (?) dry rot starting in side walls.

Unit has 37k

Oh & JJ the 45lb Box Pei is in charge of security ~

Congratulations! It is fun out here! May be a little prejudiced, but we believe 34' is the goldilocks size.

As you have some experience with RV's, you likely agree that there is no such thing as "superficial dry rot" in tire side walls.

Everyone has their own criticalities, ours is brakes and tires. Just seems a lot more important to be able to stop than to be able to go.

Oh, and DIY is half the fun. Don't care what SWMBO says.

Superficial Dry Rot = Lying to myself (easiest one in the room to lie to)
