Newbie with Winnebago Elante. Like kid at xmas

New to rv'ing (3 wks) with a Winnebago Elante. Used to tent camp and this is going to be great if I can get all the bugs worked out. Seems like this is going to be the ultimate camping. We quit the tent thing because my wife complained about no bathroom or running water. Can't wait to get her in this thing. If anyone has an Elante or similar with any suggestions or ideas, please pass them on. I'm like a kid at Christmas. Can't wait to get in it again. I do need to talk to some Elante to get help correcting problems. Thanks everyone. I seem to crowd the line so move over if you see me coming.

Welcome to RVing, and to this website, you'll have a ball!

If you're crowding to the left, that is just fine. Most newbies (and my DW) tend to run right up to, or over, the right lane marker, which means if they come upon a vehicle parked on the side, or maybe a cyclist (heaven forbid) it's bye, bye charlie - not a good thing.
