RV newbie just looking for answers!

Hey guys! I'm a first timer here just lurking and learning new things as I go. I travel the U.S. working on wind turbines and have been looking for a cheaper alternative to staying in hotels. I'm on the road for 26 days at a time and get paid per diem for lodging and meals which is a good way to pocket the extra cash to supplement my income. I decided to get a TT to save money on hotels and also to have something to take on trips when I want to go on a mini vacation on my days off! I found a 2015 2109S in Iowa that an older gentleman was selling in order to upgrade and the price was right so I bought it! Unfortunately camping season is almost over in Iowa so I'll be roughing it for a week or so with electric only. I'll be bouncing around this forum to learn new things so maybe I'll be talking to some of you soon! Thanks in advance for all your advice..from what I can tell so far there is a treasure trove of knowledge here!!! Here's a pic of my current set up...Click image for larger version

Welcome and congrats on the new to you tt. Look I g at the pic, your truck looks a little high in the front end, you may need to adjust your wdh. The truck should sit level when hooked up.

Welcome to FRF.

If you have electric, that's not roughing it. You'll have propane, and if you don't have public water you can fill the fresh water tank and use it.

I'd suggest sanitizing the fresh water system if you don't know when that was last done.

Welcome to the forum! It's a great place to get multiple ideas on how to fix things. I was a consultant for 8 years and that required me to work out of town. I eventually got tired of hotels and apartments so I bought my trailer and lived In it instead. Met a lot of nice people and loved every minute of it. Retired a year ago and have spent a lot of time on the road because I still love it. Congratulations!!

Welcome to the forum from Missouri. That is a nice looking rig you have. Enjoy it however you use it. It's a great idea to use it for work and save money. Safe travels.
