I am a new member from Mountlake Terrace, WA. I am ready to learn all I can as I am going from a tent trailer to a Fleetwood Jamboree 29'. Big jump I know, but I am willing to give it a try.

First of all ...
Going from a tent trailer to a motorhome is a change but not that much of a change. Add the engine, grey and black tanks, water heater and all the plumbing, it's not that hard to get "in tune" with your new-to-you rig. I noticed you did not mention "New" in your post. Are you getting a "Used" or "New" Jamboree? The learning is the same, anyways ... Use common sense and get acquainted with all of the systems and functions of your RV before you go out on an adventure. We rented RVs for many years before buying our own RV. Since you have already experienced a tent trailer you already know a few things from seeing/viewing your camping neighbors doing what they do . Just be patient, it will become easier the more you use your RV
