New Class C RV Owners

My Wife and I just purchased a 2016 Coachmen Leprechaun 319 DSF and it is our first RV. We are very excited and have a lot to learn! I have been reading on here and absorbing as much info as I can. Our first trip will be next weekend at a local campground in case we forget something

I have a 2013 Leprechaun 319DSF and really enjoy it. Nice vehicle with outside TV and kitchen.
I would recommend a front end alignment at a qualified RV dealer or truck shop. Mine tended to wander when I first drove it, and had it aligned. Big difference and Coachmen paid for the alignment.
A good contact at coachmen is Ron Ross, he is the product manager for coachmen class C's. He has been very helpful to me. Enjoy!

Thanks for the heads-up! I will keep an eye on it. Only thing I noticed so far is the steering wheel is off center a fair amount and it kind of bothers me but it isn't anything major.

Alignment should take care of that
