Welcome to the club. May the force be with you. Moderate speed, think way ahead, and don't pull the handle until you're sure the big hose is connected properly, and you'll probably live to learn the rest by trial and error.

Welcome aboard.

X2 on making absolutely certain the sewer hose is firmly attached. That's about the messiest mistake one can make.

Read anything you can get your hands on. Owner's manuals for the RV and appliances if you've got them. Google 'em up if not. Then read up on trailering and what it does to your SUV or truck that used to handle so wonderfully...

Again, welcome to JOF and the fun of RVing!

Welcome to the best forum! TIP #1: If you're not sure about something, ask it here. There is no such thing as a dumb question---just a dumb answer (and you'll get no dumb answers here). #2: carry four wheel chocks, extra hoses, an extra power cord, and a pad and pen to jot down anything you think of.

Put an extra sewer shut off at the end of your sewer pipe. You can make sure to be able to shut of the sewer if there is a problem-like your main sewer shutoff fails and you get sprayed when you take the cap off!! UGLY

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new Jayco! I recommend that you read up on all you can. The forum is a great place with a wealth of information. When you want to read about a particular item, use the search function up above. There are also a great deal of videos on youtube with most everything RV related. Remember to take it easy and don't be in a hurry. And most importantly, have fun!

Tip #1, spend the next 3 months here reading. You probably already have a laundry list of items you are wondering about. Search the forum and ask away... very friendly group here.
