Hi Joe,

Welcome to the Forum! Sounds like you have some great plans for your future.

If you are new, a couple suggestions. Water Pressure regulator and in-line water filter. Sometimes CG's have high pressure and not the cleanest water running through them. High water pressure can damage your RV plumbing so you want to control that with the pressure regulator. Just screws into your white water line at the utilities bay.

The in-line filter just keeps everything cleaner and although not necessary at every CG, there are some you want to protect against.

Talk with other campers at the CG's you stay at and remember that most of all have a great time.

Love the sunshine and warmer weather!

Two important things in my book, are a good surge protector, ( I use one from Progressive Industries). Also a TPMS (tire pressure monitor sys.)

Make lists of things to do so you don't forget something.
