If you aren't used to automatic steps, BE CAREFUL when exiting the moho at rest stops, etc. If you sail outta there too fast, you might find the steps aren't fully extended yet.

Never back up the MH with the TOAD attached or you may break something in the front end.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Also don't pull to close to high curbs! Can't count how many times we went to open the door and the stairs extended to only bang against the curb.

Toad is slang for the vehicle you tow.

You would be wise to do your first overnight camping venture in your driveway. That will give you a chance to make a list of all the things you have forgotten and they will be right there in the house. A note pad and pen to make a "To Do" list as you think of things you need while you are thinking about them while you are out camping. We have been RV'ing for 7 years and come home with a list every trip. Welcome to the world of RV'ing.

I agree however make it the weekend minimum! 1st rule- no one is allowed to use anything from the yard, garage or house the entire time. Everyone gets a note pad on Friday night and writes down everything as they camp in the driveway. Amazing what you forgot to load. We ended up getting 2 sets of a lot of items, towels, phone charger, dog dishes, bathroom supplies, blankets, sheets,etc..

When making a left turn at an intersection where there are 2 left turn lanes, always take the right hand lane.

Legal requirement in some states, makes it really easy in all states.

Don't listen to them. It's a small green slimy thing with four legs that hops about. Mine has rubber legs, round, and Saturn Vue stamped on its butt.

I would offer my advice, but I have only had my rig for 18 months, been on 20 trips, spent $20000 on fixing things that weren't right, so I know NOTHING!
