New owner , Hi

It is very nice to find this site. Alot of good people with good info.

Hello, My name is Alex, i just bought a 2002 Winnebago Brave 30w 8.1 with 46,000 miles. This is my first RV, however i'm not new to large vehicles. I drive a Freightliner 18 wheeler daily as a owner/operator.

I have an automotive background, worked in race car machine shop, built numerous high performance engines, and rebuilt my Detroit series 60 engine. Love to tinker with engines..

I hope i can learn and contribute here...

Thanks to eveone. I've been doing some work on my MH.

1. Had to fix the rad hoses (upper one almost came of), dealer replaced the water pump before i bought it.
2. Replaced hydroboost and master cylinder (that was fun)
3. Found every bolt loose in the front end, with some bolts missing.
4. Replaced intake manifold gaskets and bolts.
5. Fixed leaks in leveling jacks hoses.
6. Replaced plugs/wires/fuel filter.

Alot of work, but i like to check everything before trip.
