pringcl..... as you already may be thinking..... everyone here has told a small fib about helping you .... Everyone here may not have the same type of unit as you do, but we all have advice to give freely in many areas. But where to start...? and where to stop... in what can be said? We all want to welcome you to the Forum, but as polite gentlemen, we do not know your level of understanding and do not want to talk over or under that point with you.... until at least we all know each other better from newly met to old friends around the camp fire .

Is there anything specific that you want to know about for now, because you have left the field wide open, and even I (who is very long winded) do not want to wade across it at this time.

Congrats on your new camper that you and your family will enjoy for many years to come.

Welcome to the Forum

Congrats on camper and thank you for your service. I'm a nervous mom as my 18 year old son is speaking to the Coast Guard on Monday. (biting my nails)

I know it's a great experience for most, but it still makes me anxious!

Congrats on stepping up and thanks for your service!

Always carry at least 1/3 load of fresh water. That means you have your own bathroom where ever you go. McDs restroom is nasty? Who cares?

Otherwise, you're probably used to things but feel free to ask!

Thanks for all the replies. Are there any other things to consider when traveling cross country? With it being new I'm not overly concerned with wheel bearings and the like.

There have been some problems with axel seals leaking on to the brakes of some trailers.

I would pull or have pulled each hub and have/repack the bearing with a known amount and type of grease.

And make double sure the seals are not leaking for a long trip such as you have planned
