Hi Everyone!

Hi ,
I purchased a 2015 Thor Vegas 24.1 in December and am planning to use it as the weather gets warmer here in Illinois. I bought it because I am a Photographer and landscaping seems to have become my favorite photos to take . I am a little nervous or to be honest a lot nervous about my first time out and about in the rv. I will be traveling alone with my dog. I assume that learning everything about how to run an rv gets easier after each trip. Does anyone recommend a book or video series that was extremely helpful to them as they learned how to run an rv?
Thanks !

Search YouTube and you'll find a lot of instructional videos. I learned a lot from here too when I first started.

Congratulations on your new Thor. This forum is a good place to learn. Ask questions, and you will get plenty of answers.

A good idea before you start out is to "camp" in your driveway for a weekend.
You will soon figure out the things that are important, without being far from home. Experience is the best teacher. Make notes so you remember how things are done.

Good luck and Happy Trails!!!
