    May 25, 2019After 15 years of dreaming and 1 year of looking, My husband and I finally purchased our first travel trailer. It is a Forest River XLite. We are newer than newbies at this world and would appreciate any and all tips you have for us. (So far we are "youtu...  more

      Bob & Shirl Thompson May 25, 2019 First thing...power up your RV and live in it for a week. Get familiar with how all the systems work. Make you a list of what all you need to “stock up on” to have in the camper. Buy the basics for now like the Black water hose.

        The Dawkins May 25, 2019 Thank you so much for taking the time to give us such wonderful advice. My husband says he wishes I would have read this post days ago as the Amazon cart got pretty full. Lol. Thank you again.

      dalyn8 May 25, 2019 I would check Mike Sokol’s RV Electricity website for proper wiring of dedicated RV pedestal. I have read many times if not wired correctly for an RV hookup that the appliances can be fried. Also, a great site for info is RV Travel.com. Congratulations an...  more

      Judy&Rick May 25, 2019 Start a set up and break down checklist. Essential for making sure stabilizers are up, unplugged, water and sewer unhooked before pulling out. We use ours like a bible even though we have been full time for years. Order some TanktecRx for your tanks, get ...  more

      Seann (the Canadian) May 25, 2019 When you're at a full hook-up site never ever ever leave the black valve open it will cause you all kinds of grief later. Get a good electrical management system it plugs into the power pole and then you plug the RV into it it will save you thousan...  more

      Andy & Maureen T May 25, 2019 So far it sounds like you are doing everything right = research, educating yourself, and simulating camping. One item you may want to consider is practicing backing up in an empty parking lot.

        Ronnie & Milt Abrams May 26, 2019 Advice......keep clothes and toiletries in the RV as well. That way all you need to pack & unpack is food.
    • The Dawkins
      LarandSus May 25, 2019 Make sure that electrician knows what he is doing for an RV, for example, the difference between an RV 50amp outlet and a dryer outlet.

        Paul & Kay Legare May 26, 2019 Sorry John and Diana but each of those two hot leads are 50 amps. The wattage available at 30amp is 3600 at 50 amps its12,500

        John & Diana May 27, 2019 I stand corrected. "Nuff said.

      TheClearyClan May 26, 2019 As an electrical engineer I would wire for both 30 and 50 amp service. The only costs for a circuit are installation and use.

      Dave & Joyce - AZ Mountaineers May 26, 2019 If you keep your camper at home and have hookups it gives you more room when family and friends visit. My son calls ours " Pop's Motel"

    • The Dawkins
      Jim & Sharon Ham May 26, 2019 For your home base electrical outlet, you would have more amps available if you have your electrician install two boxes...30 and 50 amp.   Using a dogbone adapter on  the 50 only gives you 25 amps...hard on AC in the heat of summer.  O...  more

      Dave & Joyce - AZ Mountaineers June 10, 2019 When you are setting up AND disconnecting to leave the campsite tell everyone to leave you alone so you do not get distracted and leave out any part of the procedure that may be critical. I got distracted once and did not put in the locking pin on the tra...  more
