  • Fill fresh tank
  • Plug in
  • Enjoy

You'll want to keep an eye on the tank gauges while you're there--although with a unit that old the gauges may not be functioning properly. That really is your biggest challenge: Accurately determining how much fresh water you have and how full the tanks are. Especially if you're staying a full week. For a week I don't think I'd plan on bathing too often in the coach; if you do you'll want to take extreme Navy showers!

Aside from that: You'll have power so you can use all the appliances; including the A/C.
We'll be on-site from Wed evening thru Sun morning, then heading home. One question I haven't been able to find the answer to in the rather-vague owner's manual is regarding the hot water system. With the fresh water tank full, does the hot water tank get it's water supply automatically, or do I need to do something else to get water to it, before firing up the heater?
