Re: New Dutchmen

Congrats on your purchase......it will be a huge step up from tenting, and you were smart to buy such a nice TT to start with.

Re: New Dutchmen

HI:
YOU WILL love camping in your travel trailer. We are new to this Forum but not new to TT (travel trailer) camping. Here are a few things we learned about TT Camping:

1. Be very careful about how much stuff you bring along. Dishes, clothes, pots and pans, canned food, cleaning products can all add a lot of weight. We learned that one frying pan, one pot, a few dishes, one large and one small serving bowl, boxed food, small containers of cleaning products and plastic glasses made a big difference.
2. Pack only enough clothing for the trip. Wear things more than one day.
3. Check your control panel a few times a day because the tanks fill up quickly. ( on a side note, BUBBLES can make the tanks appear fuller than they are so do not use lots of dish soap nor shampoos).

4. Only use the recommended toilet tissue- and don't flush anything else but that kind.

5. EVERYONE you meet will be friendly and helpful in the RV Parks. ENJOY the new forever friends.

6. Get an exterior water filter. That way all of your water will be filtered.

7. Use Lysol spray on the ends of all of your hoses and the outside faucets.

Be blessed and enjoy this wonderful time of your life. WE LOVE our TT and camping.
