New to me

It's just like me: Old and cheap, but still fully functional.

2003 Bounder 32W, low miles, one owner. I basically shopped for the oldest coach that I could get a service plan for, this seems to be in the best condition of any I saw. It made the first 175 mile drive with no problems, now set up in a county park for a couple of weeks to get settled.

First project will be to find a carpenter to make a proper desk... I did temporary setup on a table as proof of concept.

One weird glitch... the socket for the microwave died. Worked once, then the next day it was dead. Circuit breaker didn't trip. No idea what could have happened.

No. But there's a wall switch under the sink labeled "Microwave" and "Water Heater". And when I flip it to "Microwave", the microwave works. Duh.

I have no idea what the "Water Heater" position does, since I have a gas-only water heater. At least I think that's what it is.

Enjoy getting to know your coach. I like your approach to buying it. Hope it all works out for you.
