Default Another Rookie

Hello everyone
Just found this place yesterday and it looks like a good spot to sit down awhile. We are new to the rv fraternity, bought a used fifth wheel from a family member this past summer just to try it on for size.
We had a blast to put it mildly. At 60 it is time to forgo sleeping in the back of the truck and enjoy some amenities. We met some great folks along the way and gained from their experience. Plus we like to leave for the day and come back to camp set up. Yesss.
Made some rookie mistakes. Like going for a full weekend without water system because I had not made sure the tanks were empty. They weren't and the shower backed up. Went to pull out and discovered the waste dump right next to the trailer. Oh well. Then there was the day I was moving the trailer in the yard and neglected to latch the hitch. The truck has a few more scars from that one.
