New from east Texas

pulled the trigger today on a new to us 2011 raptor 297se somewhat upgraded from the norm of a 297 as it will have 2 ac units, a pull down rear screen door and stacked washer dryer. not new to pulling as we train horses and have numerous goosenecks 4,5 and 6 horse, 25ft flat bed dually and even a 6x12 bp cargo for hauling feed if the weather is bad,.
but this is our first RV so there will def be a learning curve on all the systems and using them.

Welcome: I do alot of dry camping in the desert. I always leave the truck hooked up. After we level out on stack of 2x6. And don't forget to unplug your disconnect from the truck if your drycamping. Don't want to run that battery down. I also like to put down the jacks to take some of the load off the truck. and of coarse the rear stabizers. And don't forget to chalk your tires. AS far as pulling goes make wide turns. Last year I took down the stop sighn at the end of the block.

to the forum. With all your experience pulling various trailers, you shouldn't have any issue with your new camper. Go out and have fun!
