Smile Hello all New to camping with a fifth wheel

Hello all I just bought a new Fifth wheel Heritage Glen (34QBUD) and so far love it. If any one has any tips for me feel free to share like I said I'm new to this. Thanks

Welcome & enjoy...probably one of the most important issues we all have with our campers are TIRES...whatever you do, always keep a close eye on them...before/during/after trips!

Welcome- I am a strong advocate for doing walk-around inspections (pre-present-post) while on the road. Don't forget, when you do your walk-arounds, look up! You'd be surprised at the people I watch from a distance do their walk-arounds (if they do one) and never pick their chin up off the ground. Tire pressures-HUGE, check inside sidewall too. And as for the walk-arounds, establish YOUR way of doing it and stick with the same order and your not as apt to forget anything (I would advise a written guide for your first several trips however). Make yourself up a 'survival' box- tie-wraps, duct tape, mechanic's wire, hose clamps, etc for road side repairs. And the list goes on.....and on......
