In all honesty there really isn't a first. You can setup in just about any order you want (and it depends on what kind of campsite you get).

Are you looking for short explanations for each system (e.g. what to do when?)

That would be park, grab a beer, ...;let the dog out to pee, hook up stuff etc..my order.. but really no set rule, is more important when you are leaving, ie, still pugged in, tv antenna still up, slide in> awning, etc...trying to drive off when still on jacks.. dog still needs to pee..

Collk,

Wowsers, Warranties are only as good as your documentation vs. the Warranty. Check out the current problem I am having with Harris Batteries (thread: Can Zero Maintenance Batteries be used as house batteries). You can have a warranty but the company can deny honoring it because ________ (fill in the blank, in my case because it is in a Thor product).

In general, document everything you are told about the Warranty. Specifically with my problem...check your house batteries and hope you do not have Harris Batteries with a WFCO WF-8900 Converter/Charger. If you do, when the batteries go "bad" get ready for all kinds of finger pointing and you are expected to be happy left holding the bag.

Doc
