Total Newb to RV'ing - thank God for the Internet

Hey all! Sorry for the political spin, Kathy (the Mrs.) and I recently retired and bought our first RV ever and brought it home a few days ago. It is a 2012 Sunseeker 2250S, a 24' class C with a single slide that allows for a "walk" around queen size bed and just of 10K miles on it.

Our first night was spent at a nearby state park and things went fine but I know we have a lot to learn. Which is fine - I think that's a great part of the experience.

We live near Omaha Nebraska, love the Big Red and also love to travel. I am really looking forward to getting the most out of this rig and also this forum! Having browsed here a little bit, I'm sure we will be learning a ton!

As total newbies, any general advise as well as specific info on this model would be much appreciated.

Maybe someday, we can return the favor!

Welcome and congrats

Search is your friend - a lot of people have found and fixed a lot out here.

Camp Driveway is one of your favourite sites. Figure things out and it's only a walk back inside for what you need / forgot.

"NEWB" ... not at all. You will learn more here by accident, than in other places by design.

Most Important, Have Fun !!!!

Welcome to the forum from Missouri your neighbor to the southeast. Enjoy your 2012 Sunseeker 2250S. I read the forum all the time and relearning things I had forgotten years ago. We just got back into RVing this year after being away for 18 years or more. Lots to learn. Just take your time and enjoy your RVing experience. Setting around the campfire in the evening is one of the things we enjoy.
Have fun and travel safe.
