Another tip. Ebay has led light strips that use 3m strips to attach to walls ,etc. Got waterproof strip around entry door, 12volt dimmer box with remote. Carry remote with coach keys and turn on lights as you enter.

Good advise my dealer gave me was to take good digital pictures of ALL the labels on the outside of the RV because the sun and weather can quickly render them unreadable.

I have a big plastic container where I keep all of the paperwork and manuals that came with the camper and I've printed and laminated these as well as the checklists that I've created.

In addition to some of the other suggestions regarding labels. If you pull your awning out it will have multiple labels on it. Take pics and you will have all the info you need for replacement awning shades,etc. I would recommend a weber q series grill. If you like surfing you must like to grill and drink a beer. An outdoor clothesline is great. We have a 3 legged folding one from lowes and it allows our suits to dry between swims. If you get a nice one most people don't complain. Citronella candles help to keep the bugs at bay. Best thing we found is to go and keep a dry erase board or note pad and make a list of little things you would like to have for the future. We keep our campground maps on a computer as well to be able to mark our favorite sites and make notes on arriving. Have a great time.

Scott's suggestion just brought to mind another item: Get a large three ring binder with clear storage sleeves. Put all of your equipment paperwork, instruction manuals, and warranty papers in those sleeves. Also: Fill out warranty papers and send them in! Most likely the dealer won't do it for you.

Still have a few attaching kits available now, don't know about having any available after these are gone due to the chaos @ Butler Built.

CONGRATS!! Break in the piggy bank and get a progress industries full feature 30 amp protector, has saved me twice in two years.... and never accept 30 amp access from anyone who does not have a RV.


Our golden rule "if it does not have a permanent home in the coach it stays home".

Keep a label maker in the coach..... Consider marking off the distance on the rear view camera so you will now exactly where the coach bumper is (one twenty label apps I can think of).

Get a couple of good gauges one for 0-100, one for 0-160 (gauges are most accurate closer to the middle of the range, hence 60 and 80 psi)... The H series accugage from mhmieser would suffice, you can buy much more expensive but this isnt rocket science. These are at least rated (low end of the scale). I like the flex hose with a straight fitting.

As an old scooter rider I will tell tell ya track down some S-100 from a Harley dealer. Mist the front end of the coach with water, use a spray bottle of S-100 to presoak for bugs (it dont take much) before the wash. If anyone know any better stuff please chime in.

And lastly find for a blender.
