Tips for Newbies

You will find that most RVers are very friendly and more than willing to lend a hand or give advice, but here are just a few tips to get you started.

1.  Practice!

Your RV will not feel or respond like a regular car; it is much heavier, longer and wider.  For more information on handling a trailer or motorized RV, please click HERE. And, remember to practice, practice, practice.  Empty parking lots are especially good for this, so practice until you feel comfortable and then go enjoy your RV!

2.  Don't Overpack!

You will find lots of storage both inside and outside of your RV, but don't feel like you have to fill it all up - keep things simple.  (You will appreciate this when you trade it in or sell it and then need to clean it out).  But do pack a good toolkit with basic necessities like a tire guage, wrenches, jumper cables, and a flashlight.  

3.  Make a "set up" check list!

Be sure and scope out your campsite before pulling in to make sure you have the space and clearance you need for your RV.  Level the RV, if necessary; chock the wheels and connect your hookups.  Then test the hookups to make sure they are working properly.  This is a very rudimentary list and assums that you have been instructed on a water pressure regulator for your city water hookup, dumping procedures and the amperage plugin your RV requires (30amp or 50amp).  If you have questions on the electrical side, please check out this information on our website:  How to Plug in an RV

We've found that a good source for learning about your RV is RV Education 101.

Happy RVing!
