Newbie from WV

We just purchased a new Leprechaun. Looking forward to getting started. Little intimidating at first, but we're catching on in our yard

Take it to the nearest Corp of Engineer campground this weekend before you have to winterize the unit. Then follow this forum to learn everything you need to keep it in tip top shape. Meet us at a rally next spring so we can see your new toy. Have you visited the official frog site at

Welcome from the Mid Ohio Valley area of WV. We did our first trip at North Bend State Park.

Our first travel trailer was very basic and everything was manual - water heater, awning, fridge etc. There seemed to be a lot of other things to do, too, such as the stabilizers and the antenna. So I was very worried we would forget a sequence or forget something.

Everything went well. We learned that we overthought everything.

But, it was good training. I am a sticky note person, so I wrote lots of notes to myself and then collected them into a checklist.

Now, we just enjoy ourselves since a lot of those things are second nature by this time.
