Hi All, We just joined you
I just wanted to open by saying hello to everyone and telling you a little about us
I retired three years ago and enjoy the house-husband duties while my wife still works. I've been a long time member of the RV.Net forums. We bought our Scenic Cruiser almost 3 years ago and have put almost 15K miles on it. Denice still works so we are yet in the short term vacation mode. Hopefully, in a year, we'll be able to head out for greater adventures. Since our rig was not first put on the road until August, 2002, we're still under Cummins and Allison warranties, which has been a nice comfort to us.
We recently became parents again after losing our wonderful Papillon's to heart failure six months apart. Her name is Cookie and she's an 8 year old 1/2 papillon-1/2 long haired Dauchsund. We adopted her as a rescue and it's one of the best things that's happened to us.
We've not had any serious problems with the Scenic except for a failed E-brake (covered under warranty) and losing some coolant crossing the Cascades. We had to have it trucked down the mountain by Good Sam ERS. We were lucky to find a mechanic on Memorial Day weekend in Sisters, Oregon. He found all the coolant hose nuts to be loose (probably since new) and it was only a matter of time before we had the problem. He charged us next to nothing relatively speaking and we've not had a problem since.
We're members of Good Sam and FMCA. We're going to the Redmond FMCA rally in Redmond, Oregon this coming August. Hope to see you there.
That's enough for now. Thanks for the forum.
