Looks great. I've been looking for a electric fireplace to fit in the old TV opening. Where did you find yours?

From Kmart. I measured the opening and searched on the web for electric fireplace. They will give you the measurement of just the box in specifications. I matched the frame with red oak frome home depot. Hope this helps, good luck.

Here's a look at my 97 Adventurer. She's been up and down the east coast 1/2 dozen times.

1993 Fleetwood Southwind

Well this is my first post and it seemed fitting for this to also be my first MH. It is a 1993 Fleetwood Southwind 33' with a 460 C.I. and I bought it just a while back with about 53,000 miles on it. Picked it up for $6k (talked him down from $7,2k

I have fixed quite a few things, replaced the tires (which was very hard to swallow when they were with so much tread life remaining on the Michelin's), upgraded to LCD T.V.'s, replaced fuel pump on Onan 5.5k generator, plus many other smaller fixes, yet the list is still quite daunting of remaining 'to-do's'.

I still need to drop the fuel tank and either replace the float for the sending unit or the entire sending unit/pump assembly, replace belt tensioners since I am certain that is why I have a belt squeak during first few minutes after non use, as well as a good tune up, oil and filter change, etc....

Have taken it on a couple of short (35 miles) camping excursions and made my first longer drive right at 240 miles round trip to the VA Hospital for an appt. and it did really well. However the 6.5 mpg I hope to improve on once I get to working on the tune up and oil change.

Anyway; this forum is ver informative and I have been reading and learning quite a bit. Will possibly update pictures later since these are of the day I brought it home.

Bill


















Sorry about all the pictures.. Got carried away I guess.

Hey George! I can almost see the race-car in that last pic!

Have a Triple E '05 that we have had for 18 months. Bought with 6k miles on it. Inside is pristine. Have put 10k on it. On a workhorse chassis. Put new tires on. Feel a lot safer now. Have had some problems with the slide (hydraulic) due to selinoid failure. Think things are a-ok at the moment. Will be doing major west coast trip in the spring/ summer.

Some great looking older coaches here. I will see if I can find some digital pictures of our 1991 Beaver Contessa that we owned before our current coach. The day we sold it/traded it she looked like she just rolled off the assembly line. Mainly because I had the clearcoat peeling issue and had to chase that in the 7 years in which we owned the coach. In that seven years I think I painted/clearcoated about 75% of the coach, all at different times of course.

I would post pictures of our Dynasty but it isn't old enough. It just turned 11 years old this year.

Mike.

Will be interested in any responses to this as I want to upgrade the current ones I have as they are useless.

Here's our 95 Rexhall Aerbus. We've had her about a year and done 7k miles. Previous owner treated her well and even upgraded the TVs to flat panels.

Here's our 2000 Beaver Patriot Thunder:



Here's what the living room looks like after a bit of remodeling:


Best improvement was the Samsung residential fridge:
