Any pointers?

Thanks,

Jim, here's a link to Tire Rack where they have an examples of date codes of tires. Hope this helps!

I looked at the 2001 35u Winnebago on Sat. There was a water stain on the interior roof. The owner said the leak was from the bathroom skylight. She had it replaced by the dealer. Is this a deal breaker?
Also, an alarm went off while driving. I believe it to be the sensor by the closet, almost at ground level, on the closet wall. Hard to say, as the slide was in, and the gals couldn't say for sure. I was driving so I couldn't tell. My wife said she could smell something, but it went away, and the sensor went off eventually.
Any thoughts?

The inventory of clean used MH's is very big. I would keep looking and find one that you both like without obvious visible problems. Just my opnion.

There is long tire code that has a host of information, including the plant where the tire was made but the last 4 digits give the week and year of manufacture. Example: 1710 is the 17h week of 2010.

I suggest that you get more details about that water stain or move on. Its not just the repair to the source of the leak but also repairs to any damage caused by the leak - rot, corrosion, mold, etc. Do they have the repair statement?

From the reported possible location of the alarm (near the floor) it may be the propane alarm, since they are placed low as propane is heavier than air. If your wife smelled something, did it smell like propane? These alarms can go off for other reasons, but a possible propane leak must be checked and eliminated, they are very dangerous.

At this point and without some good answers, I'd keep looking.

Absolute minimum wheelbase is 55% of overall length. A much higher percentage is highly recommended. This is for driving stability and SAFETY.
