Welcome for Northern California. First on my list would be a shower nozzle swap to an Oxygenics. I always like to do a good walk around at home, and a brake adjustment to make sure everything is tight. I also took a sack of zip ties to all the loose wires, making sure the were tidy.

We camped 31 days in ours last year and love it. One tip is to either go easy loading the outdoor fridge while traveling or brace the shelf it rests on. Our shelf came loose and was sagging. The dealer was great and placed a small vertical wood strip at the rear to help secure the shelf where it was merely screwed to the rear wall before. Works great.
Enjoy!!

Thanks for the tip. I will have to look at the fridge shelf's before we go out.

If you have Castle Rock tires, D load range especially, change them and upgrade to E. Install an EMS to protect your electronics. Add TPMS if you haven't. Enjoy it.
