Setting up camp

Ok, very new to the class C rv seen. And very excited about it. Can't wait to get out there.

Coming from a very small pop-up with a lot of set up involved after we arrive at the camp site, I am wondering what all is involved in the class C set up once we are at the park?? Level, plug in, awning out, get the chairs out. Then ready for a "cold one"?? Is it really that easy?
What about filling the water tanks. And then the dreaded empting of the tanks... how bad is this to do?? I picture the seen from the movie "RV"

Thanks for all and any help!

Congrats on moving on up...

You pretty much have figured out the process. Backin/pull in, level the thing, plug it in to power, hook up to the water supply, let out the awning, un-fold some chairs, possibly laydown an outdoor carpet, get out the grill, bikes and you are done. Also raising the TV ant. to find stations or setting up the sat. dish is next on the list. Opening up a cool one (or two) is really just a few minutes from backing in.

You only need to fill the water tank if there is no water service at the campsite and if there isn't ... Too Late!

I have watched pop-up campers setup and take down and you will enjoy your C class much more,

If you have a good set of waste hoses (as in do not leak) dumping the tanks is not bad. Make sure you empty the black water tank first, then empty the gray water. The gray water cleans out the dump hose. Then use the water at the dump site to final rinse the hose and all connections. Rubber gloves are nice as is some hand sanitizer.
