Great site

We have purchased a well cared for 35' Cobra Riviera DP with the Cummins 5.9. Only 37,000 on the unit and runs well. Previous RV'ing in a 23' pull trailer behind our F250. Switched to a MH to enable us to pull our boat to Lake Powell or our Geo Tracker to areas we want to explore. We are not RV park type people preferring to get off the beaten path. Plan tohead to Baja this winter andboondock primarily for a couple of months. This site has been invaluable in helping me with maintenance and upgrade issues I have already undertaken. Started with belts, hoses,including 90' of heater, radiator flush, CAC cleaning, all fluids and filters, Transynd in Allison 6 speed, front brakes with new calipers. Although low miles with extensive maintenance records this coach sat for 7 or 8 years hence the replacement of above. Switched out to 6 volt house batteries, after having to modify depth of existing box, added 3 100W solar panels with a Pro Star 30 controller. LED,s throughout the coach using advice found on this sight. Many other little things have been done or are planned. This site has been invaluable as I have started this adventure. Will post later about the lessons learned trying to source brake parts for the SpartanEC chassis. Thanks again for the site.
