We just got our first camper. 2015 forest river Cherokee 274dbh. We are so happy and still in shock that we have it! Going camping here in a week and a half. We still have lots to learn, being first time owning a camper. We have the leveling and towing all figured out. Just need to get use to using the propane tanks, grey water and black water. All in good time
Welcome to the Forest River Forums. There is plenty of great information on the FRF.

Boy it be nice to find a newbie camping list. Starting from...after you level the travel trailer....here are the steps to follow. From turning on propane tanks, to getting hot water tank going, making sure hot water tank is full of water...things like that. Want to do it right and learn correctly . Thanks to anyone that will take time for us
Welcome to the forums and congrats on your new camper! There are lots of checklists ranging from 'simple' to 'not-so-simple but not likely to miss a step'. The best way to learn is by doing. Unless someone has a list ready that you will find helpful start creating a list as feedback comes in. Checklists can differ from one person to another as some steps can be rearrange without harm. On some stuff there can be a reason for doing one task earlier. For example: On one trip I lowered the stab jacks before disconnecting the truck from the trailer. I ended up raising the jacks up so that I could unhitch then lowered them down again.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
