Total NOOB ! New TT (x17z)

Picking up our brand new 2013 Jayco x17z from Owasco (Ontario, Canada) on Thursday. Migrating from Tent camping to a TT...kids lol.

I'm a complete newbie, so any advice welcome...particularly anything I should do right away (I recall reading somewhere about spraying water on the end tents..)

Welcome! There are lots of people here who give great advice. This is just our second year with a hybrid.

Welcome to the JOF twistedpear! We've never had a hybrid, so can't help ya with the 'end tents'. But because of kids (grandkids) we got to upgrade a few years back also

Best piece of advice .. git out there and enjoy it! When towing .. go slow. When backing .. go slow. When your spouse is acting as your spotter .. have patience!
I like to park, do a walk through of the site before I back in. Always looking up to see overhanging branches etc. Don't be afraid to boondock with no power/water - and have fun while you learn!

Picked up the same unit the last week of March from Owasco. 2 nights of driveway camping so far. One piece of advice, check to be sure both gray and black water dump valves are closed. Mine were not. A post I read here saved me some embarassment and cleanup at the first dumping station in the near future.

Welcome! My advise is read through the owners manual so you understand how to setup the camper and get started. Once you are camping, you can read through all the manuals. As for the tent ends, our 2007 232 EXP required us to set it up and spray the tent ends a couple times over a couple days. This initially swelled the threads and sealed it up. This was all explained in the owners manual. We never had a leaking tent end in 5 seasons.
