Just Bought a 1988 Holiday Rambler in CT

This is my first RV, its a 33' Imperial and its amazingly nice. I have used my Dads C class in the past, but this thing is BIG.
Its a Chevy 454. (Sadly, I'm a Ford guy). The RV has about 78k on it, and seems in excellent shape. No leaks and everything works.
I have 4 and 7/9 kids right now and we are planning on doing camping locally over the summer. I'm a pretty good car mechanic, what should I check, look at, etc?
Thank you!!!
