Hello from East Tennessee!

My wife and I just bought our first TT. We went with the Jayco Swift 184 BH. We plan on taking it out for the first time this weekend for the 4th of July on South Holston Lake. We have both camped for much of our lives with our parents, but our first voyage is going to be boondocking. Neither one of us have much experience boondocking in a camper and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or pointers you could throw our way. Thanks in advance!

-Todd & Kenzie

Somewhere down the line if you do a lot of dry camping, you will need to consider the purchase of a good, reliable generator. This will keep your batteries charged and I charge up mine each day I dry camp. I hope your first trip goes great and you have a great time. Welcome to this board.
