and most of all remember, if you need assistance, or a spare part, or you just forgot something you really need, don't be afraid to ask the campers around you. you will find the vast majority more than willing to help, we have all been there. good luck with the new tt....happy camping!

Rhino hose is a must have, fits right inside the rear bumper, get a few good levels to make sure your camper is good and level front to back and side to side, this is important for the a/c drainage.There is no need to pitch the camper front to back since the system is designed to drain when LEVEL!!! I made the mistake of pitching the camper for drainage and caused major pooling on the roof, best of luck with the x23 you will love it!!!

Good advise Bayleigh, I have found that the camping community will go out of their way to help and I have asked for help and love getting feedback from other campers especially ones with hybrids!!!

I've found it handy to have an adapter to allow me to plug the power cord into a standard household type outlet. It also comes in handy at the campsite since there are only so many of the larger receptables available and you may have to rely on the standard household type outlets.

If you camp in a cooler climate, I would recommend getting the Jayco heated bed mats. They are great. We use them all the time and I rarely have to turn on the furnace.

Make sure you also have an extension cord to reach those eelctrical posts that are just too far. This is also where the adapter (from my earlier post) comes in handy.

Most important is a good sense of humor and a pad and pen/pencil to write down what you "need" to get. Have fun.
