Thumbs up Hello!!!

Very happy to have found this site. Looks like lots of good advice, and friendly people. We have recently obtained a 1996 sunsport. It is in great shape. I went through it and replaced tires,shocks,brakes, driveline u-joints. gave it a tune up,and oil /filter change. It has 454, runs like new!! well lots of power anyway. The generator seems to run fine. Only has 1 coach battery?!?!? and 1 engine battery. Looks like room for another coach battery. Going to go ahead with a rubber roof coating (hengs rv rubber roof coating) to re vitalize the roof. Any Ideas on what I should check out next? Im Ready for a trip to Lake Shasta....and want to have a "hassle free" trip.. Thanks...!

Welcome sunsport96. As you obviously know, preventive maintenance saves a lot of trouble down (or on) the road. Keep us informed on you trip/s and enjoy that motorhome.

Welcome. It sounds like you are ahead of the game. Preventative maint is a great way to start.
