Hello!
I just inherited my dad's 29' Newmar American Star. It's a 1990, and it looks as if it just left the factory! He was one of those guys who took it on a trip, then dropped it off at the dealer for a week to have everything gone thru.

I stumbled across this form, and boy am I glad! There's much to be done, as it hasn't been used in about 4 years, and that idle time has been hard on her.

Foremost will be to get the furnace operational and get the roof sealed.

I look forward to much discussion!
Thanks
Rick

Thanks! I'm excited to be here - in fact, I'm at work, and can't get much done!!! We've used the camper many many times, and now it's my family's turn. I do have a few questions, as there's no owner's manual, so off the the Newmar forum I go.

Thanks again
Rick
