Welcome, happy trails.

Make sure you get a copy of the crowd sourced Vegas/Axis owner's manual.

Congratulations and have fun!

Know your numbers by getting it weighed while completely loaded with gear, people, gas, water and propane.

An alignment is most likely good advice and I recommend getting one while fully loaded. Though, maybe, also consider a specialty shop that will increase caster a degree or two.

A battery filler system, like flow-rite, makes keeping them topped off quarterly an easier task.

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your new coach! You have found a big group of folks with a lot of RV knowledge and specifically about your Vegas. It's a good place to bring your questions.
Life is better when you cry a little, laugh a lot, and are thankful for everything you've got!
