FIRST TIME RV OWNERS, RV NEWBIES or even experienced RVers TOP 10 THINGS EVERY NEW RV OWNER SHOULD KNOW (RV LIVING HOW TO VIDEO)

Tips: Know your height (You never know when you will come across a bridge with a height sign and you will cringe as you drive under it not knowing your RV height).
→ Know your length. Along with this, don’t trust google maps – we have an RV Specific GPS – Garmin 780 https://amzn.to/2rGur6q that has kept us out of areas that are not “RV Friendly” – except that one time in NOLA. BUT we didn’t hit any power lines, so it did all work out. Carry basic tools. Skimping on the essential tools (gorilla tape, command hooks).
→ Know where your breaker box is and know which outlets are the GFCI outlets (Carry spare fuses). When we were in Missouri we blew the fuse for the inverter and then our house batteries were not charging.
→ Bring in your awning – even if you have a wind sensor – our story of the rain in our awning in GA
→ Make sure your steps are up. Over packing – you don’t need that much stuff. Have an electrical extension/adapters and 2 hoses to extend reach!
Spent too much $$ on Gas! Use an app to check Gas Prices (GasBuddy).
→ Traveled too fast – not taking your time (didn’t pace ourselves). We felt like we had to see everything. You can always come back so slow down and keep a better pace.
→ Didn’t use walkie talkies when backing into a camping spot. If you want to stay married, get a set of walkie talkies! https://amzn.to/2rNEGFO
→ Creating a checklist for teardown/setup as well as for maintenance. You can share a List with each other on an iPhone or use FMCA app. www.gratefulglamper.com/checklist
→ Leaving the black tank open. Always keep your black tank closed. Keeping it open allows solids to build up in the tank, creating a “💩 pyramid!”

    Looking at the video you showed of your awning, you DO have adjustment for right and left to let rain drain. You just pull down on that straight horizontal part just a bit and it will lower that side. Before you pull the awning in you just push it back up and then roll it in. We had the same awning (most RVs these days have the same) and they drain if you pull that point down. Give it a try.

    Hi, can you guys please make a video on how to properly stock an RV for the corona scare going around. I live in a small town surrounded by forests and id like to boondock instead of staying in the house in case they decide to start dictating what citizens should do. Thanks in advance

    Here’s a tip for all those viewers-always turn off water pump prior to moving and bleed the lines. Our first time out in our new fiver found us mopping up floors and ripping out carpet after our kitchen sink faucet turned itself on and ran for ? hours while we were on our maiden voyage.
