Hello and so glad another newbie plus all the more exoerience, Ihad a couple days of intimidation and buyers remorse, until LASTNIGHT in my neighborhood there was a huge music/ food hangout memorial day bash. Everyone had their ez ups , chairs and grills going out by the lake . We were about to go down , I was picking up the ez up canopy,my son said "mom let's take the airstream down there " so we did. We pulled up in the flat grassy area like we knew what we were doin (we didn't)! Pulled out our chairs, deployed our zip dee, lit a candle and I got a glass of wine. Then the crowds started coming.EVERYBODY WANTED TO SEE. And everyone was so jealous and said "now you've got the right idea". It was too funny and my buyers remorse is gone !
The refrigerator does not work-it was working when I looked at it, and when I went to pick it up after purchase it was not cold . , need new tires, and only 2 of the electrical plugs work. She (we have decided its a girl -) is going to get checked out tomorrow while we go to the beach for a week. I'm terrified of what they are going to find. I have seen a lot of little sugar ants in the unit. ???i hope that will not be bad news. The hitch and sway bars are what came with it. It is a weight distribution hitch. Not sure of the brand - will talk in depth about hitch with rv service place.
2honda 2000 to run the AC? That is going to be very expensive, that is discouraging news. Bc it is hot here and wear going to need that.
Also I do not have fantastic fans in celing vents. How much are those and how much difference does that make in coolness?
Batteries did not last long LASTNIGHT. We did have few lights on inside. Wish I could have run a fan but the outlets did not work on battery . Do outlets work on battery?
If you are plugged in to electric harness of vehicle can u run off tow vehicles battery? I'm thinking this battery issue is fonna be a biggie for me - I think I'm gonna be day tripping or boon docking more than in rv parks for sure.
In general, the rv parks tend to be full of permamant residents and look bit raunchy to me . More on that later bc I need to find some good ones to go to with my family.
Thank you to everyone and please keep the advice coming, I am like a sponge.
I have 3 boys, but no husband so this is a true adventure for me, but my boys are handy and helpful and I have had to become so down thru the years, but still I'm not a guy - and much of this is intimidating. My son is 17'and pulls it. He has pulled boat forever and is great. I, however am not and that is my next chore once we get settled, to gp practice backing up and pull it for some short trips.
Plz keep the suggestions and comments coming. I have already pulled down ugly curtains and got creative made some from pre made lowes- they look awesome ! More on that later- maybe I can figure out how toost some photos.
