Hi from Sunny FL

New to RV/TT's amazing what I have learned in a month.
Bought 2001 26 ft Bunk House. Started right away w/ mods and restorations.
First concern was where the electrical panel was, found it. Then where did the electric water heater element go? (dissolved in tank)
Leak over bed, cracked/rotten vent dome. (duct tape is working at moment, new cover should be here by Friday) Shower skylight, doubles as a shower in the rain. Have a new one to install tomorrow, sealant just got here today.
The list goes on, discovered the water fill hose is missing. Glad I haven't tried to fill the water tank yet...LOL It goes on...
I hope to learn from those here who know more than me.

Thanks for the welcomes, FL with 2 Thoms, glad it's a big state..
I have the TT hooked up in the backyard, getting everything working as it should. Already it's been an adventure.
I have a feeling I may posting some some questions to the knowledgeable folks on here, TIA.
I did get the sky lite replaced, was a bit worried about the weather, but all went well. Now I need it to rain as the weather guessers said it would.

Ask away! according to the seriously non-scientific survey (SSnS) the community here is about evenly split between newbies and people that have been RV'ing for more than one lifetime.
