We are as green as green can be about RVing. I would be even more excited if I didn't feel overwhelmed by all the doodads and switches and on this simple little rv we just purchased. Right now we're trying to get a handle on winterizing since we plan on a trip to warm areas and then back to very cold climes. Like any new experience we will learn to be comfortable..........eventually.

Welcome to IRV2. Pick a forum here and ask away. You'll soon lose that green feeling.

Probably the best thing you can do is...........find a experienced RV mobile mechanic and have him go over all your doo dads and switches, while you take notes or video everything.

What is the make and model of your simple little rv and did the seller show you around?

Welcome to the group. Just remember we were all green at one point. Ask, ask, ask questions. It'll ease the nerves.

Hi folks! Welcome to IRV2 and the wonderful world of RV'ing!

There are different methods of winterizing so you might want to go over to the area of the forum that covers your type of RV, i.e. Travel trailer, 5th wheel, motorhome, etc., and search for "winterizing". You'll find lots of information on this subject.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Welcome and don't be shy as we were all a little green around the edges and some of us were green to the core. There are no stupid questions if you don't know the answer so ask away. The people on this forum will go out of their way to help. We have a great bunch of folks here. (you'll see)
