New here and New to RV'ing - sort of...lol

Hello all! about two weeks ago I traded in my old 1982 Sunline travel trailer and bought a 2015 keystone 260LE. I had my sunline parked at a friend's river lot. Most everything was unusable in it so it was basically just a place to sleep (broken fridge, cracked Blackwater tank..but hey the a.c. worked!). Recently I've decided to sell my house and buy the new RV so I could stay in it for a while to pay down bills and save up money. I'm excited about all the changes and nervous about this New RV and all the things I need to learn (huge difference between the sunline and this one lol). Any tips would be great!!

Glad to have you here with us. Congratulations on your new Keystone trailer. You're going to enjoy it.

If you haven't taken delivery of it yet get the dealer to show you how all the systems on it operate. Take good notes so you can reference them in the future. Even video it!

If you have taken delivery try to find someone near you that can show you tips for the trailer. The dealer where you bought it might know of some people that can help you. Most systems AC, Heat refer., tanks, etc are similar in most rvs.

Good luck and Happy Trails!!!

Thank you all! I have already taken delivery. She's sitting in my driveway right now. The walkthrough was good but he did it so quickly it was hard to take notes. I think between everything online and this forum and asking people at the CG I will be ok. I can't wait to take it to the CG, get
It de-winterized ( that will be fun...my first time) then get to using it.lol
