Hi Ace,

Welcome to the forum. Give us a little idea of what experience you do or do not have so we know where to start. Have you camped before or is this the first time?

Everyone comes here with different experience levels and the people here are just as varied in experience. There are old threads that you can find by using the "Search " engine above. Enter "dumping my tanks" or "leveling my MH" or whatever you are interested in. YouTube also has a lot of videos you can find with the same labels.

IN case you are brand new, I would suggest a trip to Walmart. Water pressure gauge and water line filter. Both are a necessity as far as I am concerned.

Under the "Owner's Forum" column you will find others with the same rig as you that can get more specific.

Good luck and you have a great time with your new rig.
Love the sunshine and warmer weather!

Thanks for the warm welcome! So, my experience. I was a Boy Scout growing up, so I'm used to tent camping. I recently purchased A PU to see if my family would like camping and they did. My wife and I got tired of the hassles of popping up the PU, so upgrading seemed like the next best step. The ACE won as our camper of choice. Gonna have a lot of things to change with it, but I don't mind.
