New RV-ers - Rockwood MiniLite 2509S

Hi Everybody,

After a couple decades of owning boats off-and-on, we are moving to RV-ing. We are pleased with our new MiniLite, and plan to practice "camping" in our driveway for a few days before we head out on our first trip in a couple of weeks.

I learned a lot and shared a lot on boating forums such as BoatingABC, and look forward to doing the same thing here...!

Tom

Welcome to the forum! And a good move on camping in your driveway for a few days to make sure everything works as expected before heading out. We did that too, and it sure helps to make sure everything is ready to go before you head out.

Welcome from Albrightsville PA

What a great idea. Congratulations! We will picking up our first RV in a few weeks. We live in the poconos, so guessing we won’t be able to try it out until early spring. Enjoy! Looking forward to the comments on here.

Thanks Everybody!

@Virginian: I see you are from southern Virginia. My wife grew up near South Hill, are you anywhere in that area?

I'm actually about 80 miles West of there. One of our camping trips this summer was to North Bend COE campground on the lake at Boydton. She'll know where that is.
