Hey y'all! As you can see by the title I'm new! New to everything RV'ing.
I'm picking up my new to me 2006 Four Winds Five Thousand 28a tomorrow 5 hours away from me and was hoping for some advice straight away.
It has the Chevy Vortec 6.0L engine and only 11,000 miles, which as I understand it can be both good and bad. This is my aunt's and it's basically been sitting since it was bought new after having been driven twice across country. She only takes it 10 miles up the road a couple times a year to camp otherwise. It has the original tires on it which are showing heavy signs of side splitting (not sure the correct terminology) so the first thing I am doing is having new Michelin tires put on it at Discount Tire. Then I'm going to get an oil change somewhere close by (although the oil looks crystal clear). Should I get synthetic or regular oil? So other than that, what should I be doing to get this girl ready to go on a 7000 mile journey across the country in 3 days? Do I need to be concerned about the brakes with such low miles? What about hoses and belts and such? The oil changing folks apparently can do a multi point inspection but are their things I should tell them to pay close attention to?
I'm so excited I can't stand it! And very happy to be a part of your world now! Thank you in advance!
