New to Forest River and 5th wheel... excited!

Hello everyone. My wife an I are buying our first Forest River 5th wheel. 2014 Sierra 365SAQ. I have been camping my entire life as a child then when I got married and had children, I wanted them to have the same experiences loving camping and the outdoors (not that being inside the 365SAQ is like being outside; LOL). I am seasonal on Cap Cod Mass and its my slice of heaven on earth. I have had box trailers for the past 14 years and decided its time to step it up. The kids are getting a bit older and need more space which the Sierra will be sure to provide. Plus it is truly a step up in quality and the craftsmanship (as you are all well aware). I will need to get used to the mechanicals of the 5th wheel as they are foreign to me but I am sure I will acclimate quickly.
I have read thru lots of posts and think I need to make sure I have the right amount of a/c. Mine has the 15K and boxed an wired for the second machine. I think June will be a good time to add that. I haven't taken possession of mine yet but I am looking forward to spending a couple hours in the walk through and will find the checklist helpful... so thanks!
I lok forward to being an active member of the community and I am happy to be a FROG... LOL. - Joe
