All good advice. I really believe in weighing the rig for 2 reasons; 1) So i know I am within weight restrictions of the coach, 2) Knowing the loaded weight allows me to accurately determine appropriate and safe tire pressure.

We used to let the kids lay in the bed and watch TV but no more, if the coach is moving they are belted. I will let the DW go unbelted in extreme emergencies like when I run out of coffee.

Have fun and enjoy your trip

I've taken the time to read through all the responses. I really appreciate you all taking the time to answer my questions. This is all great advice...just what I was looking for. I guess I knew the answers, but I mainly wanted to confirm my own thoughts and feelings with hearing other RV owners' advice.

We've decided to have another vehicle follow behind with. That way, everyone will have a seatbelt and we won't be overweight. Not to mention the added transportation for getting around. I'll have to show this thread to my kids so they don't think I'm being unfair when enforcing the seatbelt and overweight capacity rule. Haha.
