I was glad to see someone else who is new to the RPod. I also saw the RPod and told myself, I want one. I retired in Nov 2011 and purchased my RPod in February 2014. I had to upgrade my vehicle (for towing) then expanded my driveway, so I don't have to store it, then I bought the RPod.   I have been to the a nearby lake (about an hour away) twice, once Memorial weekend, then again July 4th weekend. Both times I was with friends who have a larger travel trailer and are more experienced. I have purchased items after each time that I found would make my setting up easier and faster. I got a fitting for my cordless drill to make the stabilizers easier to lower and raise. I got the little support fences for the sewer hoses, and an extra hose to rinse out the black tank (don't want to use the fresh water hose for that) I have now been looking at shelving and storage items for the kitchen area. IKEA is looking good for some items. Question though, I have not mounted anything on the inside walls, afraid to mess them up. What are they made of and what kind of support is needed for hanging shelves, etc??

Before leaving the driveway always do a walkaround and make sure everything is secure lights work, hitch is locked, chains hooked up & crossed and enjoy your adventures don't forget tire pressure!

What is the correct tire pressure for a 178? I have those mud tires. Thanks!

The correct tire pressure is on the side of the pod, up at the front left, on a sticker, that tells you the proper size/type/tire pressure for your pod.

If you have an Ipod or similar device, go on the app store and search for trailer parking.  These apps will help a lot in getting better at backing.  You need to build a new set of reflexes.
