Non eventful trip

With reading all the problems and things going wrong when using these machines thought I would post the bright side.
This camping season has been very busy for us and this was the first time using it all year. She sat for ten months fired right up and away we went. The only problem we had was the water level in the toilet bowl was a inch under the rim. Removed toilet tank cover and turned dial down a couple notches and all was good.
Had a fella come over and got to talking. He asked me what year the rv was and I told him and he thought I was lieing to him. Then he asked what engine and I told him a Detroit and he really thought I was kidding him.
These older machines are still very reliable and can be purchased fairly inexpensive.

glad you had a good summer. It's nice when you can just enjoy the RV for it's intended purpose and not have any stress. We too had a very uneventful camping summer. Towed the 5er about 2k miles this summer with zero issues. Can't really ask for much more than that.

Thanks Mike!

It really is important to remind us all, that these forums are more often used to work thru problems, then to say 'All is OK!'!

Glad the season has gone well for you,

Had basically the same experience, sat all winter and until July. Fired right up and no issues for a 7 day trip, just topped off the fresh H2O (I'm on a sweet well and always take it from home), added our chow and off we went. Went again in August and just got back from another week. 1854 miles in three trips, 180 gallons of diesel and my only issue is a non-functioning porch light....LOVE these vintage coaches! Routine maintenance/cleaning when you get back does pay off.

Safe travels and regards to all'

My 98 Intrigue has given me many miles of trouble free driving. I have the older C series 8.3ltr Cummins. All mechanical, no computer. It can sit for months and when you turn the key she fires instantly. The newer coaches are nice but have complicated systems. Just remember what Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott from Star Trek said "The more complicated the plumbing the easier it is to stop up the drain". I try to live by the K.I.S.S. method, Keep It Simple Stupid!

Don't want to jinx it but we've traveled from Virginia to Oregon without any issues with the coach. It is a good feeling.

We did have a recurring issue with our Winegard Traveler sat dish. Cured that with a newly installed RF Mogul. Just arrived at Winnebago/Country Coach for a bit of service next week and hope my wallet doesn't get too flat.
