    I am still trying to decide between a 5th wheel or Class C, and honestly, this looks like a lot of work to hitch up. Thank you for sharing and letting us all see what is needed.

    Look at getting the Progressive Industries 50 AMP Surge Protector, that you install inline behind the Converter in your unit, it comes with a little LCD display and I do not have to worry when I hook up to a CG electric post, I am automatically protected from over voltage, under voltage, and reverse polarity. I know some folks buy the ones that connect to the post, but the inline unit is one less thing you have to carry or forget to install, it is always there protecting your system. They are simple to install, takes about 20-30 min depending on your technical ability, but their instructions are very easy to read….Happy Camping and good luck to you both

    Just found y’all channel. I’m 😍 it!!! Your cracking my azz up😂😂. Watching now your Solitude walk thru/storage…… yes I love all the collapsible kitchen ware… I’ve boughten a lot off Zulily throughout the last few years!! Wanted to maybe share a tip as far as puppy pad/potty area inside…… maybe try a Weather Tech floor mat. We have them in our truck and they are great! They are made w/a slight upright curve to fit the truck floor but I was thinking one may be a great way to keep waste from running into areas ya may not want it to and it’s waterproof and washable!!! Anyway… going back to binge watch y’all. Stay safe and happy rv-ing!!!!!!!!

    Great video! Hated that it was so hot for you guys. I live in Lakeland so I know about high humidity and scorching heat. I really like what you said about putting the Happy Camper stuff in all of the tanks with only 2 gallons of water to slosh around in the tanks while you're driving and clean off the sensors. I never thought about turning off the main while plugging in the power cord etc. to prevent power surges. I love your beautiful home and truck! Happy Glamping everyday and thanks again!

    Great tip about the breaker Jason, I have also been told that overtime this can cause issue with your electrics, you don't want to be wire chasing in your rig/home.
    Cold shower for some pup!.

    Thank you! Learning the practical part is so important, and you were very clear and understandable. Also, convinced me that there is no way I can handle a 5th wheel alone. Good to know.

    GR8 tip for Happy Camper use ( my hubby) also adds a few cups of ice cubes right before we travel so they also slash around in there too with cleaning agent. Have a fabulous weekend! 🌈 !

    Great information about moving. Now Ziggy is ready to roll – he wants to see new sights, new girl/boy dogs and looking cute.
