Great advice, thanks for all of your posts! FYI the carpet we are replacing is just in the bedroom, and the industrial stuff under the captains chairs and motor cover. Please keep your comments coming, they are all a great help! One more question, someone told me to have the wheel bearings re-greased. How often do I need to do that??

Yes, Thank you all...very much. I too am semi new with only a couple of trips under our belt. And thank you op for replying back, too many times new comers get on here and post once and leave. I'd hate for the more experienced folks to stop replying to newbie threads.

As far as me giving advice, Tires, search tires on here and abide by the dates on the tires, tread doesn't matter.

Go camp for a couple of 2 day weekends somewhere you'll end up with a list of what you need and you build from there.

As far as repacking the bearings - if you have no record of it being done, probably best to do it. Same goes for the brake fluid. In fact, ensuring all fluids are good would be prudent on a coach that old.

For my two cents I would say a Surge Protector and a Tire Pressure monitoring system. Those two items will keep your equipment and family safe. For my money anything after that is gravy.

Happy trails.

make sure you buy a water pressure reducer for the incoming camp water and an in line water filter. Both will extend the life of your coach, faucets and water heater.
