First trip - 184hb slx

We just purchased a 184 as well...Knoxville, TN. Had our maiden voyage (Big South Fork National Park - East TN) and had a blast - did not have full hookups so grey tank filled before we were ready for it to but that was only hiccup. Purchased a couple 7 gallon blue tanks and put under storage seats - plan to use to empty grey when camping without full hookup. Going to try and squeeze in one more trip before Thannksgiving before getting winterized.

Still learning our way around as this is our first camper but really enjoying so far...half the fun was trying to think of everything we could need to stock before heading out first trip (we did pretty good - spent a lot of time on this forum before making first trip). Seems a great fit for us - myself, wife, 5 year old and 1.5 year old girls and dog.

Sounds like you all are having great fun! Funny how different camping you all have and we are in the same state! Take you a RV catalog along with you and check it out when you are sitting in the camper. It really helped us figure out what we needed and more importantly, what we didn't. Enjoy!

Congratulations on your purchase of the SLX 184BH. We also recently purchased this unit too.

Sounds like you are off to great adventures and family fun!

Use that trailer a lot and enjoy it.
2011 Eagle 330RLTS with just about every option.

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left.

we also have this tt and after two trips we love it. bought 2 stabilizer jacks at wally world for the front, about 20 dollars, they work well. good idea for the grey water tanks. we are thinking of adding the portable black water tank, 9 gals seems so small, but we did not fill black tank on first 2 trips. only 2 of us in tt and we try to use cg facilities when we can. happy camping.

I just recently joined this forum & am catching up on all the great 184bh posts! Our family purchased ours just under a year ago & we love it...it seems like the perfect little camper for a young family. We have an 8 year old son & a 3 year old daughter. It's great to be giving them the same camping memories that I grew up enjoying!
I hope this summer is bringing you many happy camping trips!
