First, welcome to our forums. You will find lots of help here. Now to answer your questions as best I can..

1. What temp is your AC set to? Is it set to AC, Heat or fan? I can't help much on this one.

2. Typically the filters are in the large vent openings. Do you have 1 or 2 AC's? There is typically 1 filter per AC. These can be washed out and reused.

3. Beep beep beep is likely the CO more Igor (usually low to floor) or smoke alarm. Check their batteries. If your coach battery is dying, you have a drain. When not in use refill the battery disconnect switch. If yours is not equipped with one, they are cheap and very easy to install. A trailer will always have a parasitic drawing the battery is not disconnected and will go dead in a couple of days. If you are dry camping, the battery will drain quickly if you don't conserve power, have a generator or solar power charger. Several threads on how to conserve power when dry camping. Try a search if that is your issue.

4 what kind of smell? More info needed here.

Once you get this all taken care I'm betting that you won't hate your new RV. Right now things aren't as planned so you might be dealing with regret. Give it time to get the bugs worked out so you can be back in your comfort zone. I can relate - I almost sold my TT the first night I brought it home. It's a long story but I'm glad I didn't sell it.

New wood smell or is it an not-so-pretty smell?

What do you mean by it has water? What and/or where has water?

My batter used to go dead quickly and the beeping noise drove me crazy. I no longer have that problem since getting a battery disconnect switch installed.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
