1997 overland loradeo

Well we just bought her, we have lots and lots to learn. So far I changed the oil and glow plugs on the generator it's the idl8000 not too bad of a job. I also switched out the house batteries for some trojan t105 golf cart batteries. This thing is going to have me scratching my head for sure. Last night the jacks operated perfectly. Went to put them down this morning and just get clicks. All the legs make the same sound. Had to be something safety related but I can't figure it out. Any ideas. I'm sure I'll be doing all the work and maintenance myself. I'll share anything I find.

Did the owners form open? I didn't see one.

Happy camping
Ian & Lisa

Check ALL the fuses. Under the dash on the controller and under the coach near the pump (30amp).

Welcome to the Overland Owners family.....

I did at one create a forum for Overland Owners and hosted through my website, but almost no-one used it and it has gone dormant.

There is a nice group of Overland Owners on a Facebook Group

https://www.facebook.com/groups/537718293011161/

Might as well join in there. It's a little easier to get updates and post pictures, so I think the FB Group is working well. There are some great technicians in this group, so be sure to share your info over there also.

I'm assuming you have HWH hydraulic jacks. HWH has some great troubleshooting guides and tech info on their website. I'm sure you can find the info you need there.

You'll be discovering a lot about your new ride as you go along.

Thanks

There was a breaker in the battery bay that was tripped , I didn't notice it. Flipped it and the jacks all started working...


I've also sent a request to join the Facebook group.

We went to the FMAC rally in Perry Ga and an Overland owners group found us. They have a lot of information to share about Overlands. PM me and I will give you a contact.
Could you please send me the info to contact them. Thanks

Just sold our 97 overland to our son who lives in it full time. It is a 42' with one super slide.
We loved the coach. We bought it five years ago in Arizona, and had been in storage for 8 yrs. believe it or not it only had 6,145 miles on it, and the heat while in storage did a job on some plastic items. Had to replace the tires, and even though the microwave still had the packing that came from the factory the heat fried the electronics. It went in the dumpster but a new sharp fit same hole perfectly

When we sold the coach it only had 19,500 miles on it. The 300 cummins wasn't even broke in yet.

We drive in the mountains a lot and the cummins did heat up on long hard pulls to the point I had to pull over once and let her cool down. As far as everything else worked perfect. The cabinets in over lands were built by Amish, and we have pictures of their buggy's parked outside the Indiana factory. These coaches were very well built and you won't be disappointed if you buy this one

Good luck with whatever you decide

Newbie Ovrland Owner and RVwe

I just got my 99 Overland this past April and we are currently on our first trip. My wife and I are new to the RVer world and are learning as we go. We still don't know how everything operates on the Overand and we have been stumped as to where to turn to get any answers. We have no owner's manual. I can't even tell you the stats on it like how long it is, storage capacities, engine size, how high it is. I can tell you it is a Lorado and it drives really well.

At the last RV site we stopped at in PA they had cable, but we could not get the tv to work. Right now we are staying at the RV site in West Point, so tv is not an option unless we watch a DVD.

If anyone out there has any information they would like to share it would be awesome.

If you are coming back through Central PA, you're welcome to stop here and we'll help you in any way we can. I've got electric and water, you can stay a few days and I'll try to help you with your Overland as much as I can. Everyone was a newbie at some time. It's a lot to wrap your head around.

1998 Overland Laredo M-3741 for sale

Hello All:

My wife and I are looking to get back into a Class A. We had a 2002 Coachmen Cross Country for a few years but sold it, then tried using a trailer but with two young kids, keeping them in a truck seat while you travel limits how far you can go, compared to a Class A.

There is someone selling an Overland Laredo near me, he's asking $22,900. I could probably get it for north of $20k. 37 footer, new tires, looks to be in good shape. Miles are around 87k. Has one big slide out.

NADA guides aren't helpful that much, but does this price seem reasonable?

bryan

Overland to buy

I too recently bought a Overland 1990 model. 90 k on odo. 20 k for the unit is a decent price especially with slide out, make sure it works. Do a complete exman on everything. I'm still learning about mine, as a auto tech for years I have had the pleasure on working on some the Overlands so when my unit came up I jumped on it, good luck

Ben
