CONGRATULATIONS on the JAYCO!!!
...and WELCOME TO JOF!!! The members here are GREAT!!! There is a lot of GREAT information to be found here. I am sure that you will have information and pictures to share with us... so please do!!
If you plan on dry-camping then upgrading your batteries would be highly recommended. Just remember you need a way to re-charge them also. If you plan to only stay at CG's that have electric hookups, then your current battery will be all that you need.
There is some information on batteries on the "RVing with SOLAR
" Social Group in the Community section of this website. The posts are on the second page.
