Intro

Howdy, all!

Just put a deposit down to purchase a Geo Pro 19FD. It will be pulled by a 2019 Ford Ranger.

First time buying a camper, wound up reaching out to six dealers to find what we wanted and get the best price.

Found out that I needed to double check the location… I wanted to try to not drive more than a couple of hours… I think it’s about 7 hours from me.

Anyone out there have more than one solar panel and went to lithium batteries? Is it major electrical engineering, or just common sense?

Me? I retired from being a Department of the Army Civilian for 33 years, most of that was working at Fort Campbell. My wife and I plan on touring the eastern us and then traveling to Oregon to visit the kids/grandkids.

The traveling pack includes a 9 year old Shitzu and a three month old Boston Terrier. Will be about three weeks before the unit is ready for pick up.

Any advice? Lots of YouTube videos, but I thought I’d reach out here.

Dave

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your up coming purchase of a Geo Pro 19FD. Make sure to do a good PDI (Pre delivery Inspection.) A PDI guide is available here by going to the green header bar above and clicking on Library then looking for the PDI form. It can be down loaded and take with you. Make sure they fix any issues found before leaving dealer. Good luck. Later RJD

Congrats! My advice is to keep things simple while you learn your camping style. And also not to sweat the small stuff. Any mishaps can make for good stories telling later on while sitting around the campfire.

You make sense. At the same time, it’s good the read the recipe and get all the ingredients ready before you start cooking. Have no doubt disaster will occur.

A lot of folks have commented on my attitude, many using negative works. On the hand, they do say I have an intelligent butt…
