I have learned a lot from it in the last five years. So I don't ask as many questions as i used to.

I try to limit my postings to where I think I have something to contribute. I think it was Abe Lincoln who said something like "better to remain silent and let people think you are a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt". A lot of times someone else has already posted a solution to someone's problem, so mostly I can sit back and observe. I generally try to post when I have direct experience and don't contribute much to the theoretical discussions

Also, I try to limit my time on the forum, and in other online media, so I only check it once or twice a day. Too much other fun stuff to do.

I really appreciate those who do contribute a lot, and those who moderate the forum.

I don't post very often but check in a couple times a day while I'm off work in the summer. I enjoy reading the threads and have gained a lot of knowledge here. I am gaining experience with my new 5.0 ta Classic.

Got most of my questions answered. Bought the trailer, now I'm off using it. There's a wealth of knowledge on this board that I haven't acquired, yet.

If anyone has questions about the use of a portable oxygen concentrator in a solar powered Escape or whether a Newfoundland fits on the U shaped dinette, I'll jump right in.

The comments on this forum are what helped sell us on getting an Escape, and the information has been very valuable. Thanks everyone! We are relatively quiet folks, but hope to be around for a long time to come.

This forum has been invaluable over the past year as we were putting together our build sheet. Now, I mostly use it to whine about not getting any photos of my new 5.0 TA.

This is a great site and most of the questions have been answered. Just by using the search you can find anything on anything Escape. I believe most people don't post because they've already found the answer using the search. Sometimes someone will ask a question and a member will kindly direct them to a section on forum with the answer. I don't post much, but do read a lot. I own a Casita but find this to be one of the best sites on RVing.
I'll be retiring in about two years and wanted to buy the Escape 17b, but unfortunately the price is now beyond our budget. I know Escapes are high quality they are worth it, but for now we are just like kids in a candy store looking through the window. When you can't you can't, and we'd like to retire debt free and enjoy our retirement traveling.
I'd like to thank the moderators and all the great people on this forum who give great advice. Especially Donna! If she can do it you can too!
