New 2 RVs in California

For several years I struggled to master towing a super 23 ft Sportsmen trailer. I loved camping but spent trip, both ways, in terror. Took delivery on a 2016 Forester and I have already had it out several times, it's perfect. I'm still cautious and learning but my white knuckles are gone. I have been following this forum and learning a lot. Decided to jump in so I can ask questions when I have them.

Congratulations, and nice-looking unit! Hope it gives you many happy trips.

We're also in northern California, and also new to motor homes. Don't even know enough to know what questions to ask.
