Selecting a campsite
It should be easy to choose the ideal RV site. You put your 30-foot rig into a 30+-foot site. Remember the height of your rig too. Include the air conditioner and TV antenna, not just the height in your manual. Look around before you back in and be sure you have room for your slideouts. A good list of site qualities would be

Avoid dumpsters
Avoid dump stations
Avoid high traffic flow
Avoid infringing footpaths
Avoid shared hookups
Ensure room for slideouts and awnings
Pick your neighbors
Choose shade in the summer
Choose open area in winter
Consider satellite reception
Avoid infringing streams
Level site is better
