Hello Deb & Dave from another Wisconsinite! My main piece of advice to new RVers is to enjoy the process.
You can dive into this as much or as little as you wish. Big picture to every little detail. Whatever you opt for is right.
Having said that, I find it good to practice camping a night or two in your driveway and a local park. That will tell you much. A pad and paper will be good. Write down your questions and post back. I'm certain you'll get some answers.
