Hi, I recently spent 4 wks. camping in Oregon. A suggestion; I found a lot of campsites to be very muddy with all the dampness, rain, and possibly snow; nothing dries out. Bring mats and lots of old towels to keep the mud out, particularly if you have dogs.

Be careful of the flooding and land slides. Where are you staying in LC?

Sounds like you've done your homework. Do have a notebook and pen handy to jot down any thoughts as they come to you. If you are RV "Newbies" I'd STRONGLY recommend you find and attend an RV Boot Camp. The Escapees RV Club run an excellent one and, other groups also offer them. Mistakes made with RVs are often expensive and, sometimes dangerous. The time and money you spend at RV Boot Camp will be well spent. Congratulations on your new rig and, safe, smooth travels!

"We are only going 150 miles so this will be a good ice breaker. "

Hopefully you don't have to break too much.

I totally agree with the notes about making and following a checklist for hooking up and unhooking. We have camped in many of the State Parks on the Oregon Coast and really have enjoyed them. Since you are going in the winter, please be cautious when driving. Watch out for black ice and the ice that can form on bridges. Enjoy your trip!
