going for it????

Hey,
I'm finding a lot of good info both here and on the web, I'm picking up a used class A and getting back into camping. I have been looking for the DIY section, is there one and would you be so nice as to point me in the direction. I need to do a lot of cleaning on this and the roof looks good but I think it needs some attention. My last camper was so old that I think it had a steel roof????? So anyway, I would rather hear it from here than online and guess what works the best for the roof.
I'm getting a 04 Fiesta 26Q, its small but I want to get our feet wet with something small first. If it works then maybe move up I'm one to do as much as I can myself, you know your rig better and when something happens you have a better idea what it is

Thanks for any inputs, and if your in the Hampton Roads area let me know.

Hi and welcome to the group. Lots of others will probably jump in to say hello


I'm 72 and on my fourth year coming up. Almost all I know almost RVs I learned here. The are tons of info available here, and most of us are friendly.


DO NOT be shy or afraid to ask questions; you will get plenty of free advice and most of it is worth what it costs or even more.................


Tom

There really isn't a DIY section. However you can pose your questions and I'm sure someone will jump in to try to help you out.

I'm 69 and learned most of what I know over the last 59 years of RV'ing. I just don't do engine or transmission rebuilds though!

Hello: Since you want to do stuff yourself, you should understand how a motorhome and its components work. Go to the tiffinrvnetwork.com forum, look at the upper right where it says "choose a link" and go the "RV tech library". Some well informed people have technical info on most all parts of the coach and how they work. You should find this interesting reading.

!

The rig is home, it was fun getting it there!!!! Tires seem to be low on air, the old owner said they air was right I will have to get it right for me! Checking it out will start ASAP, cleaning and adjusting and making a list of things needed for life on the road. We aren't full time, we are part time on weekends. Tires and inspection are the top of the list.
