Howdy!

Hi All,

Greetings from Camden, SC. My wife and I just purchased a 2004 Keystone Cougar 304BHS travel trailer. Got lotsa questions about stuff not exactly "covered" in the owner's manual. LOL

Welcome to our "Merry Band of Travelers".
Is this your first RV; or have you already swallowed more than your fair share of campfire smoke?

This our 1st RV... although I have done my fair share of old school camping, bivouacing, etc, in my time. Avid hunter, and 21 yrs in both the Army and Marines combined. This'll be a first, tho... camping in style.

Still mastering the fine art of backing-up a 34' trailer... and learning all the intricacies of the trailer itself, inside and out.

Stand by for questions in the Keystone section of the forum... LOL

Glad to be aboard!

This DOES take "camping" to epic new levels; doesn't it?
Does your Better-Half help guide you; when backing up the rig?

Backing is easy...just do it slowly and listen for the "crack" instead of the "crunch".

Ahhhh... another devotee of the "Braille Method" of backing-up!

She's learning... hand signals are vague, and yelling out to me from the rear didn't work too well either, so we bought a pair of small Cobra two-way radios. Lord help us! LOL

With some good luck, and a lot of patience: you'll both be fine!
