Thank you

I am sure there are a few things to repai nothing as serious I hope I have been looking for repair guides for the chassis so I can figure out how to replace the a.I.r pump that froze up. I have never worked on an rv before, time for the learning experience.

As you well know it could have been worse and cost more.

Welcome Aboard!!
Maybe the problems are from the RV sitting while for sale. It isn't like most people drive their RV everyday. (Although, I wish we could!!).
Good Luck and I hope you are problem free from now on!!
Enjoy!!

I would like to try to find a forum that discusses basement air conditioners. Not sure how I go about doing that

Glad you're aboard. There are a number of threads on the basement A/C. Just type "basement A/C in the google window on the tool bar above and leave it set to IRV2. Best of luck on finding an answer to your questions. Enjoy your adventures and be safe.

drakgrim, Look above and go to the owner's forum column and look at Winnebago. I think you will find others who own your brand of RV who can help you. There is also info here r/e owner's manuals but I can't find it right now ( I am also new).

Lot of good info here. There is also a Forum for people who own older MH's. They might be a good resource. I think you are really going to enjoy this.

Good luck, safe roads, Lynne
