Wink Hi from Texas

Just got a Thor Vegas 24.1 and am super excited about RVing even though I am a bit intimidated by all there is to learn. Any ideas? I've read the .manual but it's not very clear on some things. Either that or I'm just an RV dummy! Thanks for any ideas!

Welcome to the forum. There are many here that have the knowledge and are willing to share it. Just ask any questions and someone here will have an answer. Try out every system on board to be sure they are working and you know how to use them. It will be a fun experience and learning curve for you.

Congrats again

Welcome to the forum! What year is your coach? Is this your first RV or are you a seasoned veteran?

The Vegas and it's twin the Axis have been well discussed on this forum. The search feature will provide you with hours of entertainment and answer many of your questions.

A forum legend, Ed Felker, amassed an excellent crowd-sourced manual for Vegas/Axis. You can find it on a sticky under Motorhome Tech topics.

Happy trails!

Welcome to the forum. You'd be surprised how much information you will glean just from driving to the gas station. There is no replacement for seat time. Get behind the wheel and drive to the local big box store. Put out the slides, fix yourself a snack and use the coach for an hour or so. Do this every chance you get and you'll soon be an expert.

Welcome to the forum. Don't feel bad, most manuals I've seen are kind of generic and can't give answers on specific things.

You have read the manual You are already ahead of most

Congratulations and you are at the right place for anything that may come up. In the meantime, keep reading a play with one aspect of the coach in your driveway one function/feature at a time. The pieces will all start to come together.

Congratulations and welcome.

You've read which manual? The cheesy one that comes with the coach? or this excellent crowd sourced one Ed wrote?

(Really if you haven't, click the link, download The Manual, and read.)
