New Owner for 17' Roo

Hi, my name is Richard, and I have just purchased a 2006 17' Roo. Will be getting to know it this week and taking it on the first trip in about a week. I am towing it with a 2000 Toyota Tundra V8 and have installed a Primus brake controller. Used to have a tent trailer in the 80's without brakes, so I need to learn how use the brakes. The TT is in excellent condition, clean as could be, and was only used 6 times by some very clean folks. So..... any advice on what I should check or do to it. ( Wheel bearings, brakes, seals, etc.)

Welcome to the forum.
I'd give the whole thing a once over and check it out. Wheel bearings...never hurts to repack. Much better than a roadside meltdown. Operate all the systems, and give the water system a good sanitizing. Enjoy!

Welcome to the Group. You'll love the Hybrid! We had a 21 ft Cabana by Keystone and it was a great camper.Just not big enough when we had guest. Get a set of Solar blankets for the bunk ends and and have fun with your new toy!
