New to the RV lifestyle

Hello, I am a 20 yr Army retiree, only retired 4 years ago. I decided that I can't afford my apartment's rent increase on my fixed income, and so I just bought a 1994 Remar Dutch Star 34' this week. I'm in the process of packing up my apartment and storing my stuff, I have until the end of the month to get out of the apt. I'm excited! I've already spent two nights in DeathStar with my kids this weekend. They spend the school week with their Dad so this is going to work out great. Camping every weekend!

I am SO NEW to this motorhome thing, I can't even locate the propane tank. doh! I wish I had a sketch of the motorhome with all of the important parts pointed to!
