Congrats on the new Georgetown! Don't worry about mistakes - we all [make/have made] them.
Mostly, you need to worry about safety. I would suggest attending a FMCA or GS rally and sitting in on a driver safety presentation. Remember, these units don't stop as quickly, and are subject to wind loading, etc. - don't try to drive it like you do your car. You'll also need to be aware of that overhang behind the rear wheels - I've known of too many newbies who have turned too shortly out of a driveway somewhere and raked that overhang across another car, a gas pump, etc.
I count myself among those - Shortly after purchasing our old 38' DP, I turned too shortly out of a driveway and raked the side along a stand of bushes and had to have the cargo doors repainted.
There are a lot of things to remember, most of which were probably covered in your PDI, but most of which you've probably already forgotten. So... ask away - that's what these forums are for. You'll find answers to just about any problem/question you have.
Enjoy the new Georgetown!
