Happy New Year! :Helo

I just moved full time into a 374BHS. Boy oh boy... I'm in the San Diego area of Southern California and this is my first experience with RVing. I'm so glad to find this forum because I feel if you don't own or sell this brand, you really can't advise on the inner/outer workings of it. Best of the best... right?

Welcome to the forum and nice looking rig, you may be a bit overweight for the SUV though!

Welcome! That rig does look good! Makes me want a new one. But I do like my floor plan. Enjoy.

Excellent 5er there. I’m not sure the car will pull it though. Welcome to the forum. We were just down in San Diego the weekend before Christmas. Stayed at Campland on the Bay. Saw one very similar at the park. Great place to stay.

Hope you enjoy your new home.

It’s called open range owners! You can use the search function on here and get lots hits on what you looking for or just ask and someone will chime in. We were all new at some point and already made the mistakes that most new-beeies are going to make and can possibly keep you from making them again. Look forward to seeing how your Kia is going to handle that beast! LOL I know baby steps.

The info on here is organized better. It’s hard to find on FB sometimes. This is the original Forum with over 11000 members. Any questions you have may already be answered . Go to the board index and look for a catagorey and use key words to search. Lots and lots of info. You can also start a new topic and folks will reply.

Welcome. Enjoy the camper!
Don’t be aware to ask questions, owner here love to address any question, however trivial they may be.
Also read the many subject topics, where you find lots of info.

Remember when opening or closing any slide, watch the movements and listen to the motor/gearbox drive. When slide makes contact with the sides, hear motor make slight groan, take finger off the switch pronto. Best way to operate this system. Taught my wife, wife opens, close our slides using this method and 6 yrs trouble free operations on our old LF297 and now the new LF318.

Good luck.
