New from south dakota

Hey y'all!
I posted a brief intro the other day, but thought I might as well be official.

After four years of pop up camping, we finally began our hunt for a fifth wheel! (Half ton towable - but still).

Four weeks ago my wife gave birth to our first born (a daughter) she's healthy and a cutie! So last Sunday we purchased our new camper. Well new to us anyways. It's a 1995 Jayco 25' 253rk. The hitch and brake controller are getting installed tomorrow morning. I also have the Ram tow mirrors (moose mirrors) on the way.

I've been going thru the forum finding a Lot of good tips and advice. If I think of any specific questions I'll be sure to ask. My father in law is an avid 5th wheel camper so he's been a Godsent.

In any case I want to thank you for the join and also a thank you for any future questions that I'll have. My biggest concern so far, is understanding the water/waste setup, so please wish me luck there. The camper is almost two hours away, all goes well I'll drive up and get it Saturday
