New FR Owner, first post to forum

Well, I just moved up from bumper pull to a 2010 FR Cardinal 3450RL 40 footer. My first fifth wheel. Its sitting in my back yard waiting for me to rig my Ram 3500 short bed with a hitch of some type. I have joined this forum in hopes of learning from experienced individuals of hitch types and all the indiosyncracies of the Forest River. So if ignorant questions appear from this poster please simply shake your head and say "newby" to yourself and if possible refer me to the past post referring to my ignorant question.. Forums to me are the best way to get to know one's stuff. I am on a Iboats, Jetskii, Dodge Ram, and modern Vespa forums. The help and information of forums is priceless. To all hello.

Thank you for the welcomes. I am busy reading all the FAQ's, threads and posts regarding hitch types, preferences by owners, etc. The wife is more interested in gizmos inside the camper, but I asked if we will get to that later. For now we need a way to pull it....
