First timer-1994 Southwind 36AD Diesel

Hello all. I joined a few weeks ago and was planning to fly coast to coast to pick up a rig, 2014 Thor ACE 27.1...that didn't happen but today I did drive home a much different sort of RV. 1994 Southwind 36 DP. 29k miles, 323hrs on the 7.5kw gen. Although 20yrs older, I think it's much more our speed...cummins 5.9, Allison 6-sp, washer/dryer...The interior will be a job and a half but, the price was right. So, time to start reading like a fiend. Can anyone in the bay area recommend a shop to do an initial "going through" of stuff? Looks like the nearest Fleetwood dealer is in Davis which isn't far at all.

By the time I got home and parked, it was pretty dark but I'll get some picks out tomorrow. Looking forward to getting this thing dialed in and ready for service.

Thanks for reading.
