We are picking up our new rig in a day or so. It's a

2007 Winnebago Tour 40 TD
Cummins ISL 400

I'm super excited. I've been lurking around this forum for a few years to learn all I can, But may have to jump on with emergency question if I run into a snag.

Thanks for all the wisdom in the past, and all I'll need in the future.

Kevin

There is something special about camping in an RV.

Congratulations! Check every system with a long test run. I suggest starting with the water heater on gas. Turn off and drain the hot water. Then heat with electricity. Same with the fridge.

Use your phone to record the walk-through and PDI you should get before they give you the keys. They should go over so many things you'll never be able to remember it all.

Hope you have reservations somewhere. That's a real popular attraction.
