I am all moved into the HR. Still have lots of cleanup and still have to go through and put all my stuff away. Once the organizing is out of the way I can start waking the old girl up. Gonna tackle the cleanup and stow away this afternoon. I need to find the fuse panel and breaker box. Want to try to fire the genset and see if I can get lucky. It looks ok just overfull on oil. Will drain it out and see what it does. The water hose to hook to city water is very old and stiff. I am going to have to replace it. It is on a hosereel in the side of the rv. Under the kitchen sink area. It will prolly need seals or replaced as well. Got the spotlight on the roof to rotate and tilt but I think it needs a bulb. Engine is running great just has a thermoquad carbon and it's leaking fuel. Who would of ever thought that would happen lol. So gonna need tires and a new carb. The pull hale for the release on the grey water tank is missing. I will need to address that soon along with the broken pipe in the bathroom. Thinking it may be best to just replace it all. Seems it has dual furnaces with separate thermostats. One in the front and one in the rear bedroom area. Auto ignite and off 12v for the fans ect. Still have not found the converter yet either. Things are well hidden in this thing lol.

Hi Rcnut,

Welcome to IRV2. When you get your new tires, don't forget to flush and replace the brake fluid before that first road trip.

Found all the appliances as well as the power converter and genset. Going to try a carb rebuild on the genset before I attempt to start it as the previous owner said it started running bad and so he shut it off. When he checked the oil it was way overfull. I suspect the float is stuck and it was overflowing into the crankcase vent. Easy fix. Hope to have the genset up by midweek. Found the fresh tank, pump, and accumulator. All under the couch in the front. Thankfully the fresh tank is above floor level as it still has water in it. Turned on the faucet accidentally while cleaning and found it still pressurized and water in it. So the pump works really good. Looks like a new shurflow was installed as well as an aftermarket accumulator. Propane system is next on the list. Tank is intact, gauge shows over half full. Has a leak detector so hopefully that works. Furnaces are electronic igniting auto starts with no pilots and look brand new. As in never used brand new. Need to look at the fridge again and see if it needs a pilot. Water heater surely does. No water to rear of coach at the moment. It's shut off due to a leak I have to find and repair. The previous owner seems to have removed the engine start battle and parallelled in the house batts. Only 2 batts and the tray is deff beg enuff for 3 so gotta fix that. Jumpstarts suck. lol.
