New member(and new owner) checking in

Hello everyone, my name is Jay. My wife Beth and I just bought a 95 Winnebago Vectra today thanks to some great advise from some of the members of this web site. This is our first Class A and quite a change from our pop-up camper. We can hardly wait to get out camping! Any advise you could give us newcomers would be greatly appreciated.
By the way we live in Ohio.

Congratulations on the purchase. Best advice now, is get out there and use it all you can.

Advice? Check out the Pond Piggies (their name not mine) in the North Central region under the Regional Chapters area of the forum. I believe they have get togethers on a regular basis.

Read your owners manual cover to cover. If you do not understand something go to the rig and compare the real thing to the manual. This helps a lot. If you are still confused learn from one who knows.

Big problems with your rig are usually a small thing. If you read the manual you will remember something about the problem (you did bring it with you on your outing didn't you????) and go look it up to learn about the fix. If you do not have a manual get one.

If you decide to install solar go to the boondocking thread and see my post "Solar That Really Works".

If you have any questions concerning anything on or about your Motorhome, call Winnebago Tech Services. They are great and will save you lots of money as well as getting answers and help here on iRV2.
