My First RV! Lots to Learn

Hello,

We just bought our first RV, a 1999 Fleetwood Southwinds 35S. We are only planning on putting about 5000 miles a year on it at the most. We have a nice local campgrounds with a seasonal lot on the Wisconsin River leased for the summer. We plan on leaving it parked there and spending any time we can in it from April to October.

Then we'll hope to take it next winter southwest and spend 2-3 weeks on the road.

Any information you can give us about using an RV for a permanent camping solution would be appreciated. We are very happy with the unit and the campgrounds lots and services. Thank you all!
