A few things that I have learned mostly the hard way.

Many electrical circuits can be controlled by one GFI

The valve on the remote black water dump line has to be fully closed or you get sprayed down when connecting the slinky.

The remote grey water dump valve only drains one tank the other valve is in the frame under the slide.

The fifth wheel pin is harder than my head sharp will cause severe blood loss and is covered in grease.

But the most valuable lesson that I have learned is that my little son always has a smile that will light up a room when we get to the trailer.

Have a great day all.

The smile is worth all the blood loss isn't it!

Sounds like someone is well on their way to becoming and expert RV'er! Also, the bottom corners of bedroom slideouts will reach out and bite you!

I still remember the looks on my three daughters faces from 30 years ago when we packed the popup trailer and headed out camping. They are grown now with children of their own and we all still camp together. Those are the memories that last a life time and make all the hard times seem trivial. Congrats on your rig and enjoy many happy years camping with your family.
