New to Motor Homes

My Wife and I ordered a View 24V in September 2021. It was delivered to Lichtsinn RV in Forest City IA in February of 2023, but we didn't take delivery of it until April of 2023.
Our previous experience is with tents and a pop-up camper.
We've spent 10 nights in it so far, and plan to take it out for a 3-to-4-night trip every other week for the rest of the camping season. We are certainly enjoying the comfort of a small class C motor home, especially on those rainy nights.
We look forward to learning as much as we come from the members of this group.

Welcome aboard!

It would be helpful in the future if your signature line was filled in. IF any problems occur the readers will know what type system you have and can reply in kind.

Happy trails.

(RVM-14) It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Welcome to the group and know that is WILL have some new surprises.
Like much of life as we know it?

One of the big things to watch as you get into things is that the batteries can be one of the more difficult things that seem so simple!
Watch the batteries carefully at first as they often do not do what we expect.
One big thing is that letting them run totally down will damage them, so be aware and try to prevent that.
Why is that so difficult? Because things that seem obvious are often not totally correct!
Things like the battery disconnect switch that actually DOES NOT disconnect all the battery drains!
You may flip the disconnect off, store the Rv for a few months and come back to find the batteries dead because several things like safety equipment are left connected!

CO and propane detectors, steps and radio presets or any automatic things like doors may still be drawing current.

Heads up and careful as a way to enjoy it more!
Why no RV year, make and floorplan on MY signature as we suggest for others?
I currently DO NOT have one!
