Re: NEW owner of our FIRST trailer 
Congrats on the new TT,
I turn on the fridge about 3 days before leaving home, that gives it time to get cold, & time to pack it. Before you leave, make sure the fridge is set to "Auto" & the propane is on & air is purged from the lines, that way the fridge will automatically switch to propane when you unplug at home, & back to electric when you plug in at the Campground.
Yes, make sure the battery(s) is fully charged before leaving, you may also want to make sure the fresh water tank is full, depending on where you are camping, if you are going to a campground with hookups, you really don't need to fill it till you get there.

Forgot to mention, FYI, you can purge the propane lines by simply lighting one of the stove top burners, let it burn for a minute or so.
Also, before turning on the water heater, Be VERY sure that the heater is full of water. Have a good trip.
