Green as they come.

Newbie joining the fray. Looks like a lot of helpful folks on this forum. That's good because I'll be needing lot's of help.

On order: 29BHDS soon to be delivered. I have so many questions.. (Like "what was I thinking?")

There is much to learn, but I am an empty sponge so bring it on!

Welcome to the JOF! Don't sweat it. After a couple trips you will have it down. Just take your time the first few times out and don't get in a rush. I would recommend searching YouTube. There are a lot of excellent videos on leveling an RV to how to empty your blackwater tank. This will also give you some good ideas on questions you need to ask when you dealer does their pre-delivery walk around and get you better more prepared for your first time out. Enjoy and have a good camping season.

After reading the title, I thought this was going to be a thread about being environmentally over-the-top..."as green as they come." Welcome to the forum. You will learn quickly and yes, make a few mistakes. We all do. Just ask away and use the search feature and you will learn quickly.
