Thanks to everyone for your reply comments. We have taken two "shake down" trips and enjoyed both. Also, after a thorough search for a good service company, we found one in Cathedral City, CA. It takes me a while to trust a mechanic. The one we found, we trusted immediately.
Duane, thank you for the link to diagrams for motorhomes. I will try to find the ones for our Winnebago 2006 Sightseer 27'. We love the RV and wish we had done this years ago. I like your idea of downloading the files to a CD. We'll do this. At the same time, I'll upload the files to a hosted server that I use so that the files will be available via WiFi, if needed.
Becks, thank you for your advice. We are trying out the RV to see if we really need a backup view camera. So far, I haven't run over anyone and haven't backed into anybody or anything.
Majestic RV, we'll check your suggestion for Cosco. I think you meant "Costco." We are Costco members and really enjoy the store in Palm Desert, CA., which is close to where we live.
Someone told us that when we start to travel further that we'll plan our trips from Costco-to-Costco or Walmart-to-Walmart. So far, we've discovered that a big part of RVing is doing the research to plan the trip.
After living in a big city for many years, we discovered life in the desert region of southern California. Someone told us that you know that you live in a small community when the "height of social life is going to Costco on Saturday for nibbles." What an observation!
Thanks to all of you for your comments and suggestions.
Rick in Palm Springs
