RV Neophyte, 2007 Tioga 26Q

I just bought a 2007 Tioga 26Q, a Ford Class C. I've never owned an RC before. My dad moved to AZ in the early 90s in a Class C Dodge, and RVed for 10 years in a 36' Class A after he retired. My wife and I were planning summer vacation with our 3 kids, and I asked her when she thought we'd get on a plane or stay in a hotel again.

So we bought an RV.

I installed Hellwig front and rear sway bars, and Bilstein shocks. It sat for awhile, so I have some work to do on the generator. I pulled the carb and gave it a good cleaning, but it's shot. So I'm putting in fuel pump/filter/solenoid and carb. But we had it down the road for a shakedown cruise last night, no big issues. Looking forward to our first overnight with the kids and a trip back to the Midwest this summer. I've got some ideas on renovating the interior, but need to get some trips in and see how we use the coach first.
