We purchased a GeoPro 19 yesterday. Should be ready in a few days. Any suggestions for newbies?

First, there are 5 different GeoPro models, with 19 in their model numbers. Which model number did you buy?

Second, put all the trailer information in your profile or signature.
Third, be sure to check out the Rockwood sub-forum, where most GeoPro owners hang out.
Fourth, don't let the dealership rush you through the PDI/walk-through. Take video of it.
Fifth, spend one night in Camp Driveway, before leaving on a trip. That way you'll be able to work the kinks out.

Welcome newbies!

When you do your 'walk through' prior to purchase, make certain that they show you how everything works and verify that it works. For example, if the stove doesn't light and stay lit for cooking, that should be repaired BEFORE you sign the final finance/purchase agreement. Don't let them tell you they'll repair it later. Later will put you in the Service/Warranty department and they are all backed up servicing rigs.

Then you can join us camping!

Welcome thanks the forum. I have a Flagstaff E-Pro which is very similar. Be sure to have then show you where the disconnect switch is that allows you to open so late the battery when it raked in storage. If you don’t isolate it, there will be a slow drain on the battery due to radio, and other electronics that do not shut, leaving a dead battery when you go to hook up. They are great trailers, and super easy to pull, so enjoy!

Meant to say “isolate the battery.”

That makes more sense
One note of caution, battery disconnect switches in the rig don't completely isolate the battery. The only way to do that is to remove the negative cable or put a disconnect on the battery itself. Just make certain to connect the battery before you move it so that the brakes will work.

The Flagstaff E-Pro and the Rockwood GeoPro are twin brands. The only differences between them are outside graphics and interior decor.
All Rockwood/Flagstaff products are exactly the same, no matter whether they are a 5th wheel, TT, hybrid, A-frame or popup.
