Newbie in GA

Just purchased a 2000 F550 Super Crew with 95,000 original miles and a Highwayman Tow Body setup for pulling a 5th wheel. This truck is loaded with stuff I know nothing about!!! Pretty much a sponge for information right now. I have only ever owned F150s before so it's a big jump on many levels. Thanks in advance for any tips or info.

I did scroll down to the Georgia members area, the GPDA. It looks great but sooo many hoops to jump through to join. Sounds like it could take the better part of a year to be a member.
