Our maiden voyage

Here are a couple of pics of our Trilly all hitched up before take off and at the end of Blissfest in Harbor Springs, MI, as we are getting packed up (Those are my in-laws in the after pic...they slept next to our trailer the tent we used to before moving "up" ). After some adjusting of cargo between the van and back of camper to balance out tongue weight, she towed GREAT for the 5 1/2 hour trip.....no sway....and the camper brakes worked like a charm. Took everyone's advice about traveling at 60 mph and using mid grade gas. My towing anxieties have been relieved, and we look forward to taking her out on more adventures this summer! Saw two Trilliums at Blissfest, gave a shout out when driving around looking for a spot, but didn't get a chance to go back and say hi. Was that anyone here?

One problem is that we don't have a battery, nor what it looks like to be a set up for one. We bought the RV battery and don't know what to do. How can we go about finding out how to install one?

So grateful for this forum!

I travel without a battery but if you do a lot of boondocking ,Yes you should have a battery of some sort. I just use solar lights and propane.
Are you equip w/120 inlet?
I sure if you follow up you'll get a lot of help on this site.

Typically, on a Trillium, the battery goes on the tongue. There is likely a hole in the bottom of the trailer, that comes up in the gaucho, just in front of the kitchen. That is where most Trilliums have a couple of fuses and an electrical box mounted.
