NC daddy joes RV Park

So we got our new RV diesel pusher 38ft and going with the family this weekend to daddy joes RV Park for Fatherís Day weekend....
they show lots and lots of activities over the weekend so we are very excited
Got a nice pull threw site, and has picnic table, fire ring , and full hook up

Iím bringing all of our bikes and lots of snacks and food etc.... maybe even our RC cars

My questions are kind of general about setting up etc , better ways to do it that you have found.

Any help at all is very appreciated

Welcome aboard. You probably didn't get much initial response because your post is pretty general and not a specific question. There is a wealth of knowledge here but some of it you'll need to find via search and some with specific questions. I'm fairly new myself and have found this board to be a great resource.

I would start here: http://www.irv2.com/forums/f258/newb...v2-201159.html

and once you have some specifics, ask away!

Glad to have you here in the forum with us. You're gonna like it here.

Setting up and taking down camp is an ongoing leaning experience. Make notes of every thing you do and make a list. It will prevent you from forgetting something important. I have different check lists and use them all the time. I have one for arrival another for departure and a third for storing the MH. Even when you become an "expert" continue using them.

Just relax and have fun.

Happy Trails!!!

Put the kids and wife outside. Dump your air and level the coach. Hook up electric, water and sewer. Then put your slides out and enjoy.

My auto levelers won't try to work if the rig is a rockin'. Everybody, sit or out! And, I only have three jacks, so there's a lot of weight on the one front jack. I have 3 12"x12"x4" wood pads I put under the jacks to keep from denting or punching a hole in the asphalt I'm parked on. If you are running roof air off the genset while traveling, turn the roof air off and let them sit for 5 minutes while you connect to shore power, then restart the roof air if necessary. You do not want to start the roof air while its system is still pressurized. Do not switch from genset to shore (or vice-versa) with any moderate or significant electrical load, the less the better, less than 5 is my goal. Let your genset run for a few minutes without load before you shut it off.

Oh, and stuff will break. These rigs are pretty fragile, built of lightweight components and bounced along our crummy roads. Treat your rig with care and get good at fixin' stuff.
