What Kind of Fool am I?

We have been retired for 9 years and had planned to buy a MH upon retirement. A few disasters like 9-11 and economic meltdown delayed that until we simply decided it's now or never.

I had never driven a MH until the day we picked up our 35' 2005 Georgetown 2 days ago. My first driving experience was the 135 miles back to our home in south central KY. Now we have it parked iin a local RV park while we try to figure out how things work then, off to FL for a couple of months.

Any thoughts as to where I might find the details about fuel cap, holding tanks, etc? I went on the FR website and looked at the 2011 specs. but am afraid they might have changed in the last 6 years.

If you are in a RV Park find some one else parked there preferably in a MH & ask for their help. You will find most RV'ers are more than willing to help answer questions. Even if there are no MH's some things will be similar with the trailers.

don't spend the money on a FR owner's manual. they are generic and the moneys better spent on a RV How To book.

just saying 35' Georgetown doesn't give us the actual model.
we would need that to get you better info.

there apparently were 3 models in the 35' range.

here's a good website for info:

Welcome to the forum. Fellow campers in most cases will jump in and help and so will the members here. Good luck with your new MH and have fun, let us know how it go's.
