our new to us rig.

1994 Winebago Vectra 35RQ 5.9 Cummins pusher, 6 sp Alison.
We got this last november 2011 from a very nice fella in Beaverton Oregon.

we lucked out with a very good price and a little tinkering,
were very happy with it..

First was the brake air vacuum generator things, removed them and replaced with 2 of the small vacuum pumps from ebay, dash air and cruise control works great now. exhaust brake was stuck from non-use, top radiator hose had a kink in it, Front TV pod mod & conversion from CRT to LED so it now does not hang down. steering wheel tilt was froze from non use. and for my wife b-day a new image on the back. Replaced the back up cam system from B&W to color with 2 cams and remote for under $100. replaced leaky master cylinder. fixed automatic steps..
we have been to White Earth in mn to mt rushmore, to washington. runs like a old timex. wonderful rig and funny but everyone I talk to about them who had one say they liked them too and wish they never sold it.. 8-)

It's always a plus to be able to do your own fixes. Now it's just enjoyment time. Safe and trouble free travels.

Thank you all for the warm welcome.
I do like to tinker, and one thing I learned, if I'm working on MY motorhome,
I don't have time to fix everyone elses stuff...
There is a 3 fix limit when I go visit people. Seems they always find stuff for me to fix when I show up. ( makes me feel loved... ) ;-)

Went again to the ocean for a few days... My cousin bought a 31' Spartan chassis Sun Cruiser Vista cruiser. too, now I have another one to fix !!!
My cousin is Mark, he's a car guy so he does a lot of the motor stuff..
I do computer and electronics and everything else. Were replacing his back up cam also..
Got his set up for about $70.. He is going to halp me install a "boost" gauge and a new waste gate,,, I think mine is tired. any way, I hope to find out more about that.. .
