Smile New to TM new to this forum as of today

I bought a new 2720QS a while back. It fits in my garage which was a requirement as I refuse to pay to store a trailer. The home owner's association is death on RVs that can be seen from the street, and I have 8 feet between my house and the block wall on both sides of the house. So that part is perfect.
We bought a used 2019 Ranger, so we are good on the tow vehicle.
Would have been nice to have timed the purchase better in regards to the price of gas. (I live in Los Angeles--gas is still under $6 and change at most places.)
I am 71, probably about 5'0" tall now, and a bad low back, getting the TM up is a challenge some of the time, and other times it seems to be pretty easy.
Any tips???

We have driven from the northern edge of LA to San Diego with no problems. I am really thankful that I had a camera mounted on the back of the TM.

I hope to use this rig enough that someone doesn't get a nearly new 2720QS too quickly.

I find dipping the front down as much as the nose jack will go helps most times. I too have a bad back. Luckily, I normally camp with friends, and they always come over to see if I need help opening or closing.
