New from Tennessee...

Just got our 2016 25BH and we are loving it. Having never owned anything other than a pop up, I'm looking forward to learning and contributing here. 👍🏼

Thank you for the welcome! Since I can't figure out how to post pics yet, check my album for when I pick her out on the lot. 😂

Bugsy,

Welcome and congrats!!!

For pics I use photobucket to store the pics, then link them here.

Make sure to get the essentials for a trip:
Wheel chock.
Boards/Lego blocks for leveling.
Blocks for under the tongue jack and stabilizer jacks.
Fresh water hose.
Sewer hose- one that is better than what the dealer may include.
30 amp extension cord.

Level the trailer as much as possible when running the fridge. I do drop the tongue just a little (maybe 1/2" or so) to help keep water in the tub from showers (our tub "open side" is toward the rear of the tt).

Once the 25 is loaded up and ready for a trip, you may need to readjust the wdh. The dealer only adjusted it for an empty trailer. Follow my signature links for a ton of wdh info!

Make sure to run the proper air pressure in all your tires (tt & tv).

Unhook your battery to prevent the propane leak detector from draining it. I mounted a Blue Sea mini switch to make this easier.

Enjoy the fun times ahead!

Thanks for the great tips! I do plan to upgrade the sewer hose and I already have some chocks. I also have a photobucket account but can't seem to link the pics here...I may have to do it on the computer...this iPad may be quirky about that...🤔😄
