That's me! The look on my face is like that of a deer caught in the headlights.
My husband and I are divorcing and I got custody of the 2013 Fleetwood Storm 33Q that we purchased last year. Now what??? I downloaded the Owner's Manual and now I'm afraid to touch anything! I'm know that I'm going to need a lot of help.
I'll be driving from the Rio Grande Valley (deep south Texas) to upstate NY and then on to MT before heading home to TX this summer.
I guess you could say that this will be a trial by fire. So, if anyone has any words of wisdom, I'd be ever so grateful to hear them!

Slow and steady. Create checklists for the getting on the road, pulling toad, set up, take down and other things you will be doing a lot of. Get used to fueling and don't go to small stations. Pilot/Flying J usually have RV lanes and they put out a booklet that shows locations and amenities.
Get a co-pilot if you can.

If you have no one to lean on to walk you through the functionality of your RV, I would certainly reach out to the nearest dealer or even a mobile mechanic. See if they'd be willing to walk thru the RV and give you some details on what is where. At least then you'd know 50% more and could be a life saver down the road when you need to know where a fuse is at or something. Be worth a $100 investment in my opinion.
Open every cabinet door, all the storage compartments, and grab a flashlight. Good luck and be safe!
