Look forward to meeting new friends and learning new things. I know we will be asking for advice on everything related to our new Adventure.
Thank you all in advance.
Sheila and I wish everyone a Blessed and Happy New Year!
Enjoy your Roadtrek 170. Nice handy size so long as you aren't too tall to sleep sideways on the rear bed.
Check it out on your driveway, try everything before you camp, and even do a 1-3 day shake-down trip close to home. Then, you'll be ready for a longer trip with better ideas on what you need to pack.
If you only have one battery, conserving it will be a necessary goal (as it is for those of us with two batteries). Try reducing parasitic drains by switching off any unnecessary systems. I use only 12v tv/dvd, fans, etc. so we never use the inverter. Keep your fridge on propane, consider buying a fresh battery to start, and you'll be ok provided you drive several hours each day or plug in at night.
