It's a lot to absorb and remember, and even after 3 years, I still occasionally have to look up something about this or that in one of the manuals or info sheets.
Have fun and enjoy your new rig.

Agree 100%! Even my wife and daughter leave me alone when I'm setting up!

I failed at the Campground!

I have been there myself. Just watching and then if someone asked for help. It was a biggy when they asked as the slide came off the cables

The real test will be in front of 20 at a FROG rally. Luckily I wheeled the fiver in in one shot. Youroo didn't have to laugh.

You did not fail. At some point you will be one of the older guys and remember to treat people the way that makes you want to be treated right now.

You cannot fix what others are doing but you can offer or avoid helping. When no help is accepted, watch and start the chuckle fest if need be.

Nothing like a paper drive out tag to start a conversation. But it should have gone something like this:

"New camper?"
(yes)
"First Camper?"
(yes/no)
"Well, we're Wade and Kathy, were in site 26 and if you need anything let us know. We'll invite you over for some peach cobbler later."

Am I the only one who was expecting "I failed at the Campground" to be a disaster story?

I was just settling in to read about some harrowing adventure only to find out your only failure was that you didn't know some capacity specs.

Kinda disappointed but congrats on your new rig!

Me too.

I don't know mine either. Specs say I have 40 gallon gray tank. But I have two!

Specs say I have 18 foot awning. But I have two!!

I've read blank tank capacity 92 times. I can't remember how big it is.

My answer would have been 'Pretty danged big, till they get full'............... LOL
