Ian..New Member

Heya Folks;
Ian here from the Pacific NW , Near Tacoma WA. My wife (Wendy) and I sold our scoot *beautiful HD ultra classic* due to a work injury. So we decided to get our first RV and take our furkids with us *3 german shepherds*. We ended up getting a f53 v10 '99 33'B Winnebago Chieftain with one slide out.

WE will try to get out for weekends and holidays and see were we go from there. I am still working (keeps fingers crossed) for a airplane company up here in the nw! We enjoy all kinds of music, and getting out of the house!!!

On to the techie portion of the thread...be prepared....

We are lucky that we have a great engine\performance shop over here *the power shop* as some issues needed to be be taken care like emergency brake off the tranny was leaking. Sheered exhaust header bolt *replaced with a banks*. We have done some updates like the Koni Shocks, Davis True Trac, Roadmaster SwayBar. Yea I test drove it and measured the weight at each axle and adjusted the air pressure first . We still had the original g59 tires on htere so I went with Schucks and got 16ply Toyos, and then retested.

I have been busy updating the tv's to a flatscreen and getting the rv prepared for the winter.

Anyways..Hope to speak or chat with some of you down the road.

If you see 3 german shepherds with a couple of characters in a winnebago chieftain come on by say hello.
