Welcome from Southeast MI

DO:
Get out as often as you can.
Be prepared for issues to come up, and rest easy knowing you aren't the first to experience it. Folks in the campground are usually ready and willing to help if you need it, don't be afraid to ask.
Make a checklist. If you're new to RVing a checklist for packing, connecting the trailer, setting up the campsite, etc will help you feel comfortable that you haven't forgotten anything. It will soon be second nature to you.

DON'T
Let any issues that come up ruin your camping experience.
Think your on your own. As mentioned earlier, folks in campgrounds have likely had the same issue, seen something similar, made the same mistake and will be helpful. If not in a campground, the same holds true for members on this site.

Welcome from Missouri.

If you want some checklists to act as reminders during set-up, take-down, or hooking up, here are some generic ones. You might want to start with these and customize them as your situation dictates.

RV Checklists

Enjoy the experience.
