Newcomer from New Orleans

Hi, I am so new, I don't even know the vocabulary. I just bought a 2009 Grey Wolf 28' BH. It's backed into the driveway and I am starting to outfit it. And I hope learn a bit about it. I have yet to actually pull it with my FD 150 PU. I am assured everything I need came with it. I will start learning how to hitch it up this coming week. It's over 90ļ around here, so working in/on it is difficult.
And I'm an old lady.

Jan

Have fun with the new rig.

Hi Jan,

I'm just down the road from you. You're located in the vicinity of quite a few great camping areas. Fontainebleau, Fairview/Riverside, Tickfaw State Park, to name a few.
PM(private message) me if you have any questions. I'll be glad to help.

Hi Mike and all. Thanks for the great welcome.
Mike, we have driven through those parks and figure we will spend our maiden voyage in Fontainebleau. Or maybe just in our side yard.
I will figure out how to post photos soon and send pics. Right now I am putting in a 30 amp breaker in the house so I can hook up the AC in the RV. It's beastly out there.

Welcome to the forum pondlady. Since you are new at this, Camp Driveway is the best choice of campground for the first use. You can learn how the systems on your trailer work and get use to setting up at a campground. You can figure out what you need to keep in the kitchen and in the bathroom.

The one thing you can't really do, unless you have a sewer hookup in your driveway, or access to a dump station close by, is to use the bathroom facilities. So you will have to use your house as the campground bath house.

Let us know how the get aquainted trip in the driveway works out. You can always post questions here on how to do something while you are there.

I have not even hooked up the trailer yet. The seller delivered it, backed it into the yard, took a piece off the hitch and put it in my garage telling me that it was a safety precaution so no one would steal the trailer. He was supposed to come back and show me what to do and how to do it, but typical of a 26 yo youngster has not done so. Now I have to get that piece back on the trailer, hook it to the truck, pull it out of the yard (too soggy) and back it into the driveway. That's a bit scary. I am doing well in the rewiring department, getting electricity into a cargo bay so my drill can stay charged, doing fine getting couch out so I can substitute recliners in there. Now I gotta figure out how to hitch it up. I can DO THIS.
