New member in Sweden

I just joined this forum and would like to give you an intro of myself. Im from Sweden and make my living as a car mekanic. Its a small garage and we mostly do repairs on US cars. I live on the country side in a village cold "Enviken".. I have a GF and two dogs(Briards). My interest are dogs, snowmobiles and the RV. I am a judge in dog competitions, not dog shows were you run arond in cirkles but the type were a dog follows a trace after a person for instance. The snowmobile interest has going on for about 16 years and i now have a Collection of 10 "Ockelbo" and 2 "Rusch" two Swedish brands that you might not have Heard of.
My RV is the second one. My first one was a type C, Ford E350 with a Swedish built living area. I sold it in august this year. I have been interested in a type A all american RV for quite a while and in october i found it.It is a 1994 Fleetwood Flair 32`DP. So far i havent done so much more than driven it home which by the way was no trouble at all, but we plan to change some carpeting and do some redecorating in the shower area.I have discovered some minor issues regarding the electrical system and charging of coach batteries and the furnace is a little erratic, but no panic, its Another 3,5 month Before winter says good bye. Temperature is now 10 f or -20 c.
We dont have a lot of US RV`s here so i hope you can help me if a have some questions.
I have alredy found answers to some of my thoughts in this forum.

Welcome aboard, nice coach, snow mobiles, and Dogs. If you haven't already done it join the Fleetwood Owners forum and depending which chassis, the Workhorse Chevrolet chassis or Ford chassis forum. You'll find a lot of information there. Happy camping.

I havent joined the Fleetwood owners forum yet but i might just do that. My Fleetwood is built on an Oshkosh chassis, seems to be a somewhat unusual model, there isnt much Reading on the internet about it.
My snowmobiles are all from late sixties to mid seventies. Engines are Sachs 1cyl, Sachs Wankel, JLO 2 cyl and Kohler 2 cyl. From 280cc to 440 cc.Ockelbo built snowmobiles from 1964 to 1989 and made a total of app 48000 units. Rusch was a much smaller manufacturer and were Active from 1968- 1974 and built about 1000 units. Both factories were sited in app 30 miles from were i live.
