New to all

Hi all,
My wife of 25years(just celeb. 25th ) and I just bought our first fifth, 2016,3711FL and so far,we love it. We bought it on 6/3 and have done some front yard camping and are still learning. Since our dealer ( I won't mention name because I am not sure what is allowed on the forum) did not do a very good Walk through with us even though we told them we are green, we have been learning on our own,with a lot of folks and forums on line. We can't wait to take our very first trip, but we are taking our time to make sure we do it right and don't look too silly on our first camping adventure. We really look forward to meeting a lot of you folks.

First of all, congratulations on 25 years together. From central Arkansas, welcome to the MOC forum and family. Please make the most of this forum using the Search section and if you don't find your answers there, post a new topic and I'm sure you'll get all the information you need. Read as many of the different posts as you can and you're bound to pick up a "trick of the trade" that may someday be useful to you. We hope you have many miles and smiles and safe travels with your new 5th wheel.

Welcome from Missouri to this great forum and enjoy your stay. Itís a group of social and knowledgeable folks to help with any problems you may have with your Montana.
Here is a comment about your statement about doing things right and not look silly. From time to time a lot of us, myself included, have made silly mistakes in front of others and thought nothing of it. Everyone will eventually get their turn to give entertainment to others, itís part of the learning process and nothing to be ashamed of.

Making mistakes makes for good conversation around the campfire, so no worries there. Welcome to the forum from Alberta, Canada

Welcome to the Forum and congrat on your new Rig. Go camping and don't worry about someone laughing, I have given everyone plenty of opportunities and it has always been a helping hand rather than laughter.

Looking Silly? Count on it! It will happen! We've all looked silly at least once. Some us still continue. All part of the journey! Welcome to an awesome group. I've learned a lot from this group as well as make life long friends....
