Thanks for being here for us!

Hey Y'all,
Well, we did it! Got it a couple weeks ago, and went on our Maiden voyage this past weekend! Of course we were scared senseless, being RV-Virgins! Worried about driving, tail-swing, and most importantly, proper septic management! YIKES :O Never the less, it all went well! Had a fantastic weekend at Flamingo Lakes, Jacksonville fl. (about 15 miles from the house) One thing did catch us off guard! We were SURE the fridge wasn't working after getting all hooked up! But learned by several seasoned campers,,, it takes a long time for it to cool down!
Anyway, we are Robin and Russ, and anticipate many suggestions, helpful hints, and trick of the trade from you folks!

Hi Russ & Robin! I always start the fridge up a day or so before we leave and then pack it up once everything is cold. You will settle in on what works best for you. ENJOY!
