Thanks for the spec sheet. This will come in handy when making a offer on this

454 Chevy is known to break exhaust manifold studs. Make sure there are no exhaust leaks. Brakes are marginal and as the description you found, made for a one ton PU. Make sure the parking brake functions normally. This rig does not have a parking pawl in the transmission and relies on the automatic parking brake to keep it from rolling when stopped. The motor will make plenty of power, more (different?) than the Ford v10 but is less civilized. Either motor is going to power the rig but in my experience the Chevy will get a little better mileage right around 8 mpg. I had a 94 Damon Intruder w/454 before our current rig. It was not a Vortec. It also had no slides so was lighter and may have given the impression of more power. Check the roof and caulking carefully at that age it may be close to needing replaced. Price seems a little high but if condition is as described I would work on the price a little and make an offer! Hope it works out for you.

The transmission is a 4L80E.
My understanding it is a electronic version of a 400 turbo.only better.
I would think the parking paw is still there. But I will definitely look into that.
I did see that large brake drum looking thing on the tail shaft of the transmission.
No exhaust leak at this time,roof looks great was redone about two years they claim.
Suppose to go for a road test tomorrow at freeway speeds we will see.
I'm thinking 14 or 15k because it needs tires,they look great but there 10 year old Michelins .
Thank for you input every little bit helps.
Tom

The p32 chassis does not have a check pawl in the transmission to hold you when you are in park. You have a auto park system that sets the drum brakes, using hydraulics, located between the transmission and the drive shaft. These systems are a issue from time to time. I just finished fixing mine. Below is a link that might help you understand this system.

Auto park brake J71 for P32, new troubleshooting guide

They are fairly easy to work on but you do need to know about them. There is a lot of info on this system and there is an expert goes by the handle of oldusedbear that will give advise or help for free.

Just Google auto park system p32 and you will find a world of info.

Hope this helps again.

If you want to talk to me about my experience fixing up my MH, as it was bought on a salvage title, just pm me with an email address or a phone number.

Thanks
Steven

Cleaned and polished , fluids and filter, inside hardware to silver, new furniture, tires, 3 new TV's, carpet.. on and on.. During the process I have learned the unit inside and out. No disappointments..

41, I wouldn't worry about "extras" when deciding on price. They don't add a heck of a lot of value to a used rig. Dicker your price on the base rig and what you think it is worth to you, extra's are subjective in worth. Does sound like a nice rig though.

I purchased a used 2006 35ft Georgie Boy model Pursuit in 2013. This summer I noticed the floor in the corner of the bedroom slide become soft in the corner near the front (kitchen end). It got softer through the summer. I finally pulled the carpet up to find rotten particle board, an area approx. four feet deep and five feet in length. Don't believe it is the water feed line as the water pump doesn't cycle during dry camping. The roof caulking looks tight. Slide seals appear to make good contact.
Figure it might be the slide seal not sweeping away the water while retracting.
Have always just retracted slides. Now if there has been rain I lower front to drain rain before retracting slides.
Going to replace flooring with plywood and hope that cures the problem.
Anyone else have such a problem?

Hello any Georgie Boy owners still out there.
I just purchased a 1997 Georgie Boy Cruise Air. 49,000 miles young. I've spent the last couple of weeks upgrading with a new roof, TV's backup camera, and many other small things. I'm looking forward to heading out this summer.
If anyone is out there I'd like to hear from you. Tim

I have a 2006 Georgie Boy Landau 2450DS. Only 25 feet, and apparently not many made, but it seems to be a quality rig. Only a small rattle in the dash, and I'll be checking on that soon. Otherwise, it seems quite tight and clearly well cared for.
