Newbie section/dumb question section

Is there a specific area to post dumb newbie questions? I know most newbie questions are just uninformed, but Iím convinced that I have plenty of questions that are just dumb. Iíd like to post them in an area that wouldnít be too annoying. Thanks.

Look at the main forum page and post it in the area you think makes the most sense for your question, or put it in your specific brands general page. The moderators are good at moving it to a better thread if it makes sense to do so.

I see you have a wildwood camper go to the sub forum for 5th wheels/travel trailers and post your questions pertaining to wildwood. Later RJD

X2. The only dumb question is the one that isn't asked.

There is a thing called (Search) that will answer most all of your questions and then some you might try it most questions you have may have already been answered.

Wow. I never wouldíve thought about searching. Iíve only been using the internet since prodigy. Didnít want to sound condescending, but that was kind of what you sounded like. 🤷🏽*♂️ I searched for various things and didnít find my specific question.

Honestly, Iím not sure if the search function works the same in app, as it does webpage. Iíve been using my phone because I havenít used my MacBook in so long I need to run a bunch of updates. When I search with the app, nothing seems relevant to the question.

It's all good. Here is a link that is a collection of stuff that may help newer RV owners. Always feel free to ask any questions you have.

We also have a subsection of FAQ's that the site team has put together that may also be of help. It has a lot of those links I previous provided and several others. Now the FAQ subsection is read only and if you need to ask about anything there, you will need to start a new thread of your own.

Like I said, it's all good and welcome aboard. You'll get your legs under you in no time. We have all been where you are.

Did not bother me, but then I was just agreeing with the first poster. I am amazed at how many times a subject is posted and just two or three posts away is the same question just asked recently. The folks replying a lot should have canned responses to alleviate some typing.

I don't think people realize it is even there and if the FRF is highlighted they are going get responses from this site.

As for using the App or a computer and getting different results, my eyes and fingers work best on a 17" laptop 99% of the time. Maybe someday I will test it.
