Okay I'm think I have everything ready to go for the first weekend in the new camper and first ever weekend my own hybrid..
I just have a few questions..
1. Okay I have a water regulator and also a water filtrations system..
In which order do I use these ?
Do i hook up the water filter at the water supply from campground. Then use the hose to the regulator and then to the camper ?
Or regulator hose water filter camper.
2. When I pull into parking spot so I leave front to back first or left to right ?
I'm nervous.. I have everything I think I need ( I'm a over packer ) I have to get a few things yet but nothing's can run to box store to get while camping.
I hook up regulator, short hose to filter than hose to trailer.....that way regulator controls pressure to all my stuff.
When leveling........side to side first (position rig in site where you want it, then check side to side level......move trailer forward, place board(s) on low side then back onto them).
Set wheel chocks!!
Then unhook from tow vehicle and level front to rear. Then set rear stabilizers & front stabilizers firmly.
Enjoy your new trailer and the shake down cruise!

I remember those "first time nerves" too! I know it's easier said than done ... but just do what you're supposed to do ... and that's relax and have fun! Don't expect everything to go perfect. If it does, just consider that an extra special blessing! You'll look back at those tiny "oops" moments with fondness! :-)
I remember my first attempt at leveling. It makes perfect sense now, but I really didn't get the technique of leveling side-to-side first, and then front-to-back. Well, we were at my inlaws' farm for our annual summer get together on some not-to-level ground I tried to do all the leveling with the stabilizer jacks and before I knew it I had the tires off the ground on one side. Oops! It was embarrassing at the time, but now it's just a good laugh! Shortly after that was our first dry camping experience. We didn't bring any kind of matches or lighter for the stove burners, so I tightly rolled up some extra paper, went outside and lit the paper on the water heater's gas flame, and walked that back into the camper to light the burners. Another newbie memory firmly planted!
Have a blast! It will be the first of many wonderful memories!
