Although we've rented a couple of motor homes, we've never owned an RV let alone used a travel trailer (29 yrs married). A few weeks ago, we took delivery of a 2014 Rockwood 2604WS. We don't have a free weekend 'til May, but she's setup just out front in our driveway (we live in the middle of a lemon orchard
We're super anxious to go camping and planning our first outting to somewhere local. We still need to get some essentials, but looking for the best place to order / purchase from. We bought a 30 / 15amp pigtail from a local RV store and later found the same thing online for 1/2 the price with free shipping... argh
We've got a lot to learn, but the biggest thing that bugs me is all the non-standard explanations around trailer and tow vehicle weights and calculations. According to the Manuf. sticker, the max cargo weight can be 822lb. By adding a 2nd battery, a full tank of water (250lbs) for dry camping, plus all the other cargo and utils let's say I have 550lbs of total cargo. Does that mean that the total weight of people staying in the camper can be no more than 322lbs?
We're not new to forums since we are pretty heavy in the car scene, but still learning the RV acronyms and culture. But, glad we found this forum and have already learned a great deal
We're looking forward to meeting new RV friends and learning all this new stuff
