Congratulations on your purchase! Youre off to great start! Level it and sit insode and read your manual and appliance specific products to thoroughly familiarize yourself with your trailer's operating cabinets, storage areas, look under, over and around the inside and out of your unit to see where things are located such as plug ins, cords, fuses, gas and water lines...locate your drains for hot water heater, fresh and grey waters and observe where your plumbing pipes are...

One of my challenges on my last trailer was lighting the hot water heater...for some reason, it didnt seem to light as easily as indicated...I kept holding my flame in the wrong spot when trying to light the pilot...and not just me...others too! haha

We all started somewhere and for many, still learning ways to make it easier, travel smarter and save in power and cost along the way...

Have fun in your journey...laugh..... because if you get mad, its harder to admit and ask for that needed help. ;-)

Thanks for the advice. Not sure on the water heater pilot, since auto feature switches between electric and gas. But I will double check at earliest chance.
