Just reading the forum regularly is very educational. And if you have a smartphone, you can search for tips and help from almost anywhere.

I know I still have a LOT to learn about the workings of our motorhome, but I am having fun doing so.
I was not aware of that support line. That's definitely great to know. Thank you!

If you encounter a problem while in a campground, I expect you can walk around and find someone with a similar setup and ask a few questions. Most RVers are delighted to talk about their rigs.

You'll need wheel chocks. Don't ask how I know this. It's embarassing.

If you're new to the backing up thing with a trailer, find a big open space with cones and practice. Always just take your time don't let ANYONE rush you into something. When you're at a campground ready to back in and it seems like the world is waiting behind you and the stress builds.......... RELAX they were once in your shoes doing the same ting you are doing. Try not to rush or get anxious. Bad things happen when those 2 things mix. Good luck and happy camping.

Good advice. I've had experience trailering boats, so I'm not too intimidated by that aspect. Although I have no doubt I'll find myself in tighter spaces in CG's than I did with boats.

Well, we picked up our trailer on Saturday morning, and by Saturday night we were at our first campground. I am happy to report that the first outing was a success! We did notice that the lower skirt was peeling away from the body in a few places, so I've had to schedule some time with the dealer to have warranty work done, but it's minor and not a mechanical thing that I'm worried about. I had a worse case scenario situation at the dump station. Some of it my fault, some I'm pretty sure was an error on the part of the folks that did the PDI. When I took the cap off of the sewer line from the trailer, a pretty good amount of water came shooting out. My natural reaction was to assume that I would be covered in feces, but I'm pretty confident it was just water. I checked again to be sure all the valves were closed, and they were. I'm hoping that the issues was only that when doing the PDI, the tech ran some water through the system and realized after the fact that he didn't close the valves. We will see! Also, I bought a Rhino Flex hose, and apparently I didn't have it connected at the dump station properly. I'll spare you the details. Glad to have that under my belt. I guess it had to happen sooner or later. We already have 4 more trips booked by year end. Hopefully happy camping! Thanks again all, I appreciate your input.
