Now the fun begins

Hello all, I'm extremely new to the RV side of camping. Wife and I went in looking to buy a used 2002 pop up tent for $3500, but went home (well its still in transition) with a Coachman Clipper Ultra Lite 17BH. I'm hoping everyone can guide me on the basics of owning one. Storage, Traveling/Driving, maintenance, and all the goodies. My first question is the solar panel connection. How can I be sure what the wattage is of the appliances? and what size panel I would need to run this baby.

thanks,
hope to learn from you all
Joe

Howdy and welcome! Did you buy your RV from a dealership? Hopefully the seller can give you a good walk through and explain the systems.

Hi Joe! Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you with us!

Congrats on the new rig! I would suggest that you post questions over in the specific areas of the forum for best results. Not many folks hang out here in the Welcome area so your responses will be limited. Enjoy the forum!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Hi thanks all for the welcomes, we bought it at a dealership and will get a walk through once we pick it up. Thanks again
