Hello from Alaska!!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Steven, and I'm living in Anchorage, Alaska. Nowhere near retirement yet, but I still enjoy traveling.

I just bought a 1973 Winnebago Indian D24 27' class A motorhome, and I already have questions on it. The 2 RVs prior to this were class C units, so I am just slightly lost on this one. This is 1970s motorhome #3 for me, so I am no stranger to the RV life though.

I like RVs 1990 and older, due to the fact that I can actually fix it myself.

Hi Steven! Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join the gang!

Congrats on the new rig! Hope you enjoy it!

BTW, I would suggest that you post any questions you may have over in the specific areas of the forum for best results. Not many folks hang out here in the Welcome area. Enjoy the forum!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Tip: Know if you have 3 holding tanks and not just 2. Because ya don't want to play plumber like I did, only to find out there was a 3rd hidden valve.
WHEW! Was it nasty.

Checked it. I have 3, and the grey & black dump valves are next to each other.

Good thing to know though. Thanks!

I'm going to be on the Vintage RV board generally, though I do enjoy chatting with other forum members.
