Jayco has manuals you can download on their site. Most of the manufacturers of the products like the fridge and the air conditioner, etc. do also. It might take a while to find them all, but then you will have them all for reference.

with sitting that long and in storage, check inner and outer tire sidewalls for dry rot and cracking.

I was annoyed to find the switch closest to the bathroom door was the fan instead of the light... I switched them around to be light first and fan second.

Congrats Kodiak!

Still keep an eye on the tires.

Have heard of some carrying 2 spares, usually those taking longer trips, or with tires that are getting older.

As you probably have read, after you get loaded for a trip, hit a CAT scale and weigh 3 times.
1- Truck and trailer ready to roll down the road (w/ w.d. bars "latched up").
2- Truck and trailer, but w/ w.d. bars "unlatched".
3- Truck only, but leave the hitch in, w.d. bars in the bed. I usually just park the trailer back where the "big rigs" park.

This will allow you to figure out your tw (tongue weight), and make sure your hitch is set up correctly.

Make sure you take a broom handle (or similar) to reach the call button!

Enjoy the new camper!!!

When I go on an extended boondock hunting trip, I carry two spares for the TT and two additional spares for the TV (like most trucks it has one underneath). However, when I am just doing common camping trips to the usual sites with easy road access I leave the additional stuff at home.

Make sure the water heater tank is full of water before turning on the heater.
If you have two switches for it (One propane and one electric) the electric switch will only work on 110v power so you have to be plugged in. Our electric switch will light up and look like it is on even when we are unplugged.
It has fooled the wife a couple times......

Fridge - love my battery-operated thermometers from Amazon! The reader is a strong magnet on the door so that a glance (without opening the doors) tells the temp of both the fridge and freezer.

I bought a fan like this one and it really helps keep the fridge cool. You have to run wire down the drain tube to connect to a 12v hot wire but it's an easy addition. Dometic Norcold Refrigerator Fan for RV 12 Volt | eBay
