Our TT is nearly identical to yours, just a slight difference in the bathroom configuration. If you get into boondocking (dry camping away from electrical and water) you will need a generator to keep your batteries charged. I recommend you not scrimp on a generator but buy a Yamaha or Honda with a min size of 2000 watts. This won't run your AC, but your batteries will be fully charged and this extends your camping trip. The advise on your awning to roll it up when you are gone is solid advise. I always carry a sidearm when boondocking but that is a personal choice as some are not comfortable with them. I carry a Rubbermaid 5 gal gerry can for water only if I need to replenish my water supply but your basic water tank is nice and large. Once you are set up, it is a good idea to unplug your trailer from your tow vehicle until you are ready to leave. I hopew you enjoy your trailer as much as we do. We are sold on Jayco.

We bought a 238rb last fall and love it. I think it's the same floorplan as yours.

1. Make a checklist step by step to set up and to tear down - follow same order and will never forget to put the steps in for instance!
2. Practice backing in an empty parking lot (can use soccer cones to create a "target") so the first couple trips are not intimidating in the last 100 feet!
3. water filter for your fresh water and agree always use pressure regulator.
4. plan trip length to not pull in stressed out at 10 pm!!
5. have fun

Yes! Also watch your speed, trailer tires are rated to 65 mph. With a strong truck and a straight flat stretch of road you'll be temped to fly. Resist.😀
