Hi, I am a retired person that has gotten back into the RV thing. We have decided travel a little in this style after years of plane rides, security checks etc. I have bought a 1995 Triple E Empress Diesel an am going to be looking for advice from people who have exprience with these type of machines. Good to be here.

Nothing like sleeping in your own bed at night Bob! Welcome to IRV2. I hope you have a fantastic time enjoying your new rig.

And don't forget to stock up on those little bags of peanuts so you feel at home

Thanks for you kind note. This machine is an Oshkosh (Ford I guess) and a cummins engine. It appears from my searching that the heater control is from a Chrys truck, the wipers (I have replaced one mechanism) is from a bus. Interesting enough the heater fan resistor they told me was the one is a Ford part. One thing about it the hunt is interesting and I am learning alot.

thanks again.

Bob B.
