    Too long of an intro and too much dumb banter between the two of you. Why husband/wife teams on these videos always think they have to banter, compete, and make useless comments on what the other is saying is difficult to understand.

    Great video. We just took our first trip a few days ago in preparation for our 6mo trip in a couple months (yikes!). Everything went perfect and the kids loved it. Post the video soon. Thanks for your video. Good actionable tips.

    One thing that nobody ever tells newbie in their videos is to make sure you know where the emergency exits are if ever needed.

    Do you guys keep one if those gadgets that can tell if you have a "hot skin" camper such as when their is an electrical problem with the camper when it's hooked up to shore power? Heard about that poor kid who touched his families camper and got electrocuted because the camper had a hot skin. Nice video guys.

    I recommend checklists, checklists, checklists!ย  Have them for everything from Spring commissioning to Winter storage.ย  Have them for pre-trip loading and post-trip unloading.ย  Have them for preparing to set up on a site and for breaking camp.ย  The best is to make them up on a computer then print them out and have them laminated.ย  Then have a grease pencil to physically check each item off as it is completed.ย  An excellent way to avoid leaving with your steps out or awning unsecured!

    Hi folks, great video, thanks.
    We are not RVer's YET, but hope to be some day.
    The only things I would add (and you probably have made a video somewhere I have not yet seen) is …… Check that all the tire pressures (including spare if you have one) are correct, visual inspection of the tire condition, all exterior lighting, and all fluids (oil, trans, coolant, brake, w washer, etc.)
    Thanks again

    What a great couple you are. You truly care. Getting to know the rv is intimidating if the basics are not understood. Gas, batteries, inverter, downhill braking etc. Between you, the Wynns and the geeks, you have us covered. Thank you.

    Haha on the t'shirt. The thing that intimidated me the most was lighting the oven. I did not use it for a year, then found it wasn't so bad after all. I always put clips on my steering wheel, one marked A for antenna & one marked E for electric. That way, I don't drive off forgetting about them.ย
