We picked up our 1st M/Home on Fri. an LMC Liberty 582 Start-it drove brilliantly and after a few miles I was quite happy cruising at 60-70. We have booked our 1st site for next Fri.-about 60 miles from home and with all facilities. Today I've made up 2 hook-up leads,one 15mtrs and one 5 mtrs,also one hose at 15 mtrs and one at 5 mtrs-am I on the right lines doing this ? We have a sattelite TV on board.what is the licensing situation-if any ? Our hardstanding at home may not be ready for a couple of mths,so we are keeping 'Libby' on a secure site about 30 mins away-if we are not using her,how often should we go down and run the engine,and for how long ? We found the Forum Checklists invaluable during the handover (I'm not sure that the guy who did the handover appreciated them as he tried to rush through it all-but it's our money !!!) Now the learning curve begins,we are excited by the prospect-but a little nervous about the first trip,for me (Mike) the electrical side of things is the most challenging,but I guess that what we need now is experience. I've read a few posts about Gennies-peeps seem to reccomend makes, but not models -how do I work out what Gennie would run our wagon ? Looking fwd to your comments,Mike.
