My first rig

This is my first rig . A 1997 allegro buss ,The guy I bought it from is 85 now bought it when he was 75 . Sad to say his wife passed away 3 years ago when that happened he parked it under a tree and left it . He put a new roof on it and windows before it got parked. 275 Caterpillar that runs fine and a diesel gen set. Its been an uphill battle to get it back up to speed . Electrical was a pain on getting it going mostly switches fuses sednoids. Plumbing was fittings and valves the rubber seals dry rotted . Now it is at the diesel shop getting all of its service done the fuel water separator had a 2006 date so its passed time . I have been taking it on small trips to RV world for repair And one shakedown camping trip to a nearby lake to find the problems . Hopefully she will be ready for a Tennessee trip at the end of month .Going to be using a 2012 ford focus for a toad . Wish it luck

I do wish it and you luck. Sounds good that you have an understanding of what's going with it. I have no doubt you will get it sorted out.

Congrats on your first MH.

Old doesn't mean bad. You are giving her a lot of attention and getting every thing taken care of it seams.
Enjoy your RV.
