New member checking in from Olympia area...
We purchased a 2004 Itasca in Feb. that needed some items fixed. I enjoy doing my own troubleshooting and fixing. This board was invaluble in helping me find what the problem area was and specifically what to fix.

Some examples below....
ABS light coming on.....clean ABS sensors
Radio not working on house batteries.....blown fuse, shorted lighter on circuit.
Engine to house battery combining on emergency start......bad selonoid in battery box
Coach wanders at +55MPH......Went to Brazel's for alignment, what a difference even at 70-75MPH.
Misc. other items.....operator error..LOL
Thank you all for your posts and help, looking forward to adding posts as we move forward with the RV lifestyle.

Tom and Lynn welcome. I was born and raised in Shelton and live in Port Orchard. Lovely part of the country. Many state parks you will love to visit. If you enjoy warm weather and dry camping try Scootney Park Rec. in Eastern Washington near Connell, WA. Great park with no hookups, but park is kept very nice, nice spots, view of the water, paved pads, fire pits, play area for kids, great lake to water sports on, $15 per night. The only hangup is it is first come first serve. Worth the trip and had a great 4 days there last year.
