So since I had the alternator go out, it was up to me to fix it since WRV is gone. Actually, I enjoyed the repair, not the cost however, but the repair was kinda of nice, and I feel closer to the coach now knowing more about how to fix things on it. Suppose the thing is going to feel like a child over time, since they never seem to go away, just hit you from different angles with different problems. Yes we are on the road, in Nicholas, CA currently.

And Sid is correct about the air dam on the rear of the coach. I check mine about once a quarter, and there are several posts on how to make it better. Mine was fine the last time I checked it, and did not see any cracks in it. I am not aware of any mileage number which might be an indicator on when it goes bad. I also don't know if every coach is affected.
10-4 Monty...
I can relate to the coach being like a child. I remodeled my Fleetwood completely inside, changed out the suspension ...you name it, I did something to it. I know every inch of it. I'm going to miss that familarity with the Alpine for a while... The Fleetwood was indeed our "baby".

Thanks for the help....and enjoy your trip.

Best regards..Stan
