You have come to the right place; lots of folks here to help you.

Everyone started at baseline zero.

Spend some time using the search feature as just about any question you could ask has been asked before and answered.

If you get stuck, just post your question. (but do try a search first).

Welcome to the forum

Try something local. Maybe at home to try it out. Then in the future, expand farther out.

i would start by looking in the sub-forum of the FR brand of 5th wheel you are buying.
see if there are other posts about your model.

second, sounds like you're new to towing also. you might want to post your trailer and truck specs in the Towing sub-forum, in the Tech and Repair section, for advice and info.

Stay close to home you will forget something or need something. Try to operate everything you can to make sure it works when you really need it. Learn how to work things, i.e. hot water heater on electric and on gas even both at same time. A good sewer hose is a must. Most important is to safe and have fun. Lots good advise on here just search.
