Hello from Alabama

The wife, and I just purchased our first RV today. When the tech went over everything I thought I took it all in. Boy was I wrong. I feel like a big dummy, not remembering half of what he said, and how to do it. Happy to have found this forum. Seems like a ton of great information.

from New Mexico & congratulations on your new Alpine!
Yep, it's a mild case of "information over-load" happens to all of us, and especially with the first RV.
Don't worry, you'll be a seasoned veteran before you know it... but in the meantime, pull-up a seat & join in.
Lots of good folks here who'll try to help as best we can.

Happy trails to you & yours~

Congrats on the new unit. Ask questions, search the forum or the internet and you will find what you need. It seams like a lot at first but you quickly learn it and will fall into a routine. Good luck.

from Oklahoma. You're not the only one. We forgot half the tech told us on our first trailer, too. Congrats & enjoy your Alpine!

Cognitive overload is common for first timers. This is a good resource
