New and loving it

Hello all,
My wife and I are new to the travel trailer world. We were looking for a little over a year before we set on a coleman lantern 202rd. It seems to be the perfect size for us and my truck.

So far I have
put up closet light
Hung 2 tv's
Propane tank gauge
Tire carrier and spare(it didnt come with one)
Installed digital thermostat
Spray foamed and caulked plumbing intrusions
Wd hitch with sway control
Bought but havent put in air bag load leveled

Anyone else have any suggestions on making things easy or tips/tricks to make it an enjoyable experience for all?

Thanks everyone.

We finished our first two shake down trips. The first thing was a bad atwood water heater board. It was a hassle to get the dealer to fix it but it is done.

The second thing was the furnace wouldnt stay lit at 3 in the morning in 50 degree weather.
Started in on it and found out that a piece of fiberglass insulation from manufacturer got sucked in and was stuck on the flame sensor. Enough good old lung power got it off and the furnace fan blew it out of the chamber. All good to go now!!!!

Good news, that you identified problems early, and have them fixed. You are going to appreciate that furnace for months to come! Have fun, and stay safe.
