Congratulations on your new TT. That's a nice layout for a family.
The best advice I can give you is something you are already doing and that is to educate yourself. Get comfortable with the forum, soak it all in, and subscribe to those threads that are most interesting to you for later reference.
This is not specific to the 2702ss, but in general, I think new TT owners have a certain amount of anxiety with weight distribution and towing.
Learn everything you can about your particular setup (vehicle, hitch and TT) and get some hands-on experience in setting up or at least adjusting your WDH. You need to understand your weights and capacities.
Your TT is 32' long so practice backing, turning , etc.
Power systems often throw people as well because most new owners do not have a lot of experience with 12-volt systems.
You get a handle on those issues and you are way ahead off the curve and more than ready for your first trips.
Other topics you might want to search on that seem to come up with campers new to TTs are:
- Extended Warranty - Make sure to buy the FR 2nd year warranty for $150.
- What to buy/pack
- Tools to bring
- Dumping tanks
- Roof maintenance
Have fun. Enjoy the anticipation!
