2005 Winnebago Journey

2005 Journey 39K, 350 Cat, 23k mi. Picked up on Crankyape for a good price. After reading posts on this site I was a bit worried about how the Basement air would perform but during our initial road trip from Georgetown TX to WI in August, it worked great. Only real issue so far was that on our 2nd trip, the vent pipe from the black tank to the roof worked its way out of the tank on a bumpy road, pushing off the top cap and spilling some contents into the compartment (yuk) necessitaing a complete clean out. Turns out there was no hose clamp on the vent connection to the tank. Surely the design does not depend on the top cap to hold the pipe into the rubber grommet, does it? Things done so far based on the excellent advice on this forum: Trickle-Start, ScanGaugeD, new Toyo M154s, extra roof vent fans for Norcold (works great without - just for good measure), entry door check strap and a complete chassis service and inspection at the local Freightliner shop. So far so good! Looking forward to pulling the tube TVs this winter and taking in some Nascar in the Spring!

Wow nice looking coach. But I might be a bit biased. Here's ours:

I really like ours as well. Has nearly every option. When you installed the Trik-L-Start, was it difficult and where did you install it? Where was the solenoid located and did you hook it up to that as well? I understand there are instructions with the device, just wondered what someone who had just done the install thought.

Nice coach, always nice to see someone else from WI on the forum. We live just 90 miles north of you on I-39 so we are just like neighbors. Jim
