Brand new RV er

We are new to this for sure. Retired vet looking to head out this summer north east and Ontario as we have relatives there
Purchased a Forest River Forester 31-2
It has 21000 miles and was well maintained. Prior owner went through everything with us.
Did a fresh Mobil1 oil change last night.
Tires have 11/2 years of wear, about 5000 miles on them.
Iím sure Iíll be asking a lot of questions.

Thank you for your service.

You didnít say where you call home to base your trip from.
You might want to post some info beside your avatar and signature.

RV tires generally age out before wearing out, and the general consensus is 6-7 years for motorized units, so you're way past replacing them IMO.
