I would also suggest spending a night or two close to ETI, that way if there are any "fixits" or questions, help is nearby.
Peace and Sunshine

As somebody with just under a year of trailer camping under my belt, I found this website of various RV checklists helpful: [URL=""]

Reporting in-

The first night and day went okay. I was (and am) mainly concerned with my electric usage. It's a bit chilly here so I ran the furnace during the night. My battery capacity was down to 91% this morning. The day was overcast and raining, and I stayed away for most of the day. The solar panel managed to charge the batteries up to 97% at one point. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunnier, so it will be interesting to see the difference.

Thanks everyone for your advice.

You should be fine as long as your stay above 60% or around 11,90 volts.
