New to the Jayco family and new to travel trailers

Hi folks,
We recently purchased a used 2013 Swift 267bhs and are looking forward to being able to use it once winter ends!
We've both only used tents prior to this so we're really looking forward to the trailer life!
Anything in particular we should be paying extra attention to regarding our unit?
Any problematic items we need to know about?
Thanks!

Welcome and you have a great trailer that you'll enjoy for many years. No real problems to speak of but remember " Water is your biggest enemy ".

Use your time to read here and other sources. Ask questions. Go to manufacturers web sites and read up on your appliances.

There are many ways to do the same thing and much helpful accessories. Just depends on your preferences and pocketbook!

We can help if you ask, it may have already been discussed but that never stops the talk.

Welcome to JOF and above the ground camping.

I agree with Tom. This site is a wealth of information and a great resource. The owners manual is also a great place to start. It lists all the suppliers near the back.

Welcome and congo ratz. Echoing what has been said. There is a wealth of great information here, lots of ways to do the same thing. Decide which ones will work best for you.
One recommendation off the starting block. Since it will be a while before your first outing. When the time gets close (after if has been de-winterized (assuming it is winterized)), try a couple nights dry run in your new TT. including one night utilizing onboard water from the tank and running off the TT batteries, and at least one night with the hook ups available from your house. Do it all, run the refer on propane, cook in it, etc. See if there are any kinks to work out.
