New person

My name is John Holp and my wife is Marlys (Marly).

We have just purchased a new Allegro RED 36 footer.

Our first MH ever.

Your thoughts and ideas relative to things you wished someone had told you about when first starting out would be greatly appreciated.

John & Maryls;

Congratulations on the purchase of your new Allegro Red. One issue that I learned much to late was the subject of tire air pressures. My advice is after your coach is loaded ready for travel weigh the front & rear axles. Then set your cold air pressure to meet minimum recommendations by manufacture. I found tire pressures increase 8#s or more depending on temperature rise especially if traveling from a cold climate to a warm climate. I blew several tires until I learned that lesson

Post often and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Welcome to the forum. Enjoy your new MH. You will figure things out as you go. Make a list of essentials. You should always be close to a Wal Mart if the need arises. Good luck and enjoy.
