New to forum

The wife and I just put our deposit down on a new 15 slx 16xbr. We are very excited to get out family back outdoors. Is there any advice to a new owner?

Read , look and ask. Read posts from folks who have the same rig and learn all you can about the operation of the systems in rv's. Just how things work in the rv world.

Drive thru a campground or five and look for a Jayco of the same model or similar and ask if they have any tips for a new owner.

Ask questions if there is something you don't understand. We are a friendly group with camping in common.

Yup, what Norty said. Ask your questions, pics help for problems. If you find/make a cool widget to make camping better, please share! There are no bad/stupid questions.

Welcome! Only advice I'd say is if you are new to the RV and/or camping world, slow down take your time and enjoy. If you get in a rush, that's when you forget to do simple things that may cause damage. Also, don't buy too much junk until you've gone out, camped a time or two and figured out what you REALLY need! Lots of cool yet won't get used type of RV junk out there. Have fun!

Thanks for the warm welcome. We can not wait to pick the camper up this week to take it out on its maiden voyage.
