Thank you for the kind welcome my wife and I are new to the RV world she's struggling with all the repair issues, but I'm hoping to increase my overall knowledge thru this forum.

For example what's the best tow bar for pulling a 05 Nissan Frontier behind a 2011 Forest River Berkshire.

It's just like owning a home...repairs/adjustments to work out the kinks when new & constant preventative maintenance to head off bigger repairs...the tinkering will become your hobby & not feel like a job, hopefully!

Welcome! I was concerned about the things that needed to be repaired on my RV which is my first. A contractor friend was working on some repairs at my house and I was discussing the repairs with him. His comment was "is that all that needs repaired? You bought a house on wheels if that is all that's wrong I would be happy." That gave me a new perspective. We love the RV.
Good Luck!

Regarding the levelers, do you level the rv before the letting the slides outs? Once the door is closed the electric step continuously bangs. Any suggestions on how to repair the steps? Thank you so much. This is the best forum ever!

Welcome...I find that with regard to leveling I know how much extending my slides will affect my level so I level the trailer first taking into account how much extending the slides will change the level...if that make sense. I.E. the trailer will be slightly unlevel until the slide is extended which saves having to, in my case, move the trailer with the slides out.
