I hope that you enjoy every moment of your new lifestyle...My sons still talk about our camping adventures decades after the event.

Thanks for all of the tips and encouragement! Great tip on adding a grill on the screen door - I can definitely see that being very handy!

One recommendation we would give is this... furnish the RV like it were a second home. Remember too that the things you may want/need can be found at places you normally wouldn't think of like Ross, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, etc. We saved a ton of money shopping at those types of stores.

We love our new used 2004 Jayco Granite Ridge, Been a Jayco owner since 1983. Started out with a Jayco Jay Thrush Pop Up. Two more pop ups and then a 5th wheel before the Granite Ridge.
All companies have issues. We are Happy Campers!

Did your Greyhawk come with a "Sidekick" grill? I put ours away, and bought a Nexgrill stainless steel grill from Costco. I use a portable tank, and it works great.

It did come with the grill. Makes me a little nervous to use it so close to the truck, but we'll give it a go a few times and see

Oops! ...and see if it suits us. Can't wait for our first trip coming up soon! I've been getting it stocked and ready, but one thing I don't have yet is any sort of leveling system. Should I go ahead and get some sort of blocks or just wait and see? I have been reading about fridge performance and leveling...my driveway has a grade to it, wondering if I will have problens getting the fridge cold before we leave. I haven't tested that yet. Any thoughts?

Lynx blocks, set of 10 is a necessity for me.
Walmart has them for about $38 with bag.

We had the same problem in our 2014 Greyhawk 31 FS. The first time we turned on the furnace it burned all of the crud off of the coils and stank up the entire motorhome. We had to turn on the exhaust fans to clear out the smell.
