I was slide-stupid. So, I learned things that you old-timers already know.
First, pick a site that has clearance for both of my slides. I had to straddle a tree on this first trip.
Second, don't store things you may need on the road in drawers/cabinets that are blocked when a slide is retracted. My jacket was in my closet and my maps and park reservation info were in my dresser drawer. Both blocked by my bedroom slide.
Welcome and congratulations on the new Windjammer. With experience comes wisdom; with age just comes...well, aches and pains, mostly. Seriously, you'll find that the folks here are very friendly and willing to answer any questions you may have. Ask away...somebody
knows an answer for any question, problem or situation you want to ask about.
BTW, fitting that tree in between your two slides apparently worked pretty well, from the picture, and if it worked, it's all good.
