First rv

Hello my wife and I just purchased a 2016 forest river Cherokee 28qbh. We are very excited and yet very nervous since this is our first one. So if there is any advice please feel free to let me know.

to the forum! Don't be nervous. It's all about having fun. Yep, the learning curve can be a little steep, but there's plenty of good folk here that are ready and willing to help you along the way.

Congrats on your new rig. Don't feel bad, we were all newbies once. This is a great forum with lots of very knowledgeable and helpful people. The learning curve won't be quite as steep in a few weeks and you'll probably have some memories to laugh about in the future.

Learn from the mistakes of others, you won't live long enough to make them all yourself.

Welcome to the forum. Get out and talk to folks when camping. I'm sure there are a lot of folks that can provide you with good tips. Later RJD

Welcome... First advise is to camp for a weekend as close to home as possible. This will allow you to go home and get whatever you don't have... and we all know there will be some trips... ... Also, make a list of everything that's wrong, doesn't work, or you don't understand. Take your PC if possible and come on these boards and ask questions... and remember... we've all been where you are. There are NO stupid questions. I often find new campers in my travels and I always try to help. There are a few that will ignore you, but just go on to the next one... helpful people are out there somewhere. We all enjoy this and want you to do the same. Safe travels!
