Our new rig is a 2022 Gulf Stream 5230B; just 25 feet . Our old rig was over 53 feet when hitched.
Looking for any tips or tricks in the class B size!

I am wondering about using the Amazon Firestick when using cable tv at the camp ground. Will it connect over campground cable TV .

Hmmm… your 2022 Gulf Stream 5230B is actually a Class C RV not a B and your Firestick requires Internet access, not cable TV. Maybe it’s time to reboot.

Yes, it is definitely a Class C, but as to the firestick, it requires internet, and campground wifi is hopelessly weak and doesn't allow streaming. I use my AT&T phone with a 40GB hotspot for streaming.

I will still try a fire stick.

For a Class C - this rig is easy to park and enjoy state parks .

Most campgrounds specifically ban streaming (and thus a Firestick). Nearly all will barely open a website or send an email, no less stream/
