IRV is the best thing since sliced bread. I can't read enough!
Anyway, not new to RVing, but new to diesel motorhomes. So, I apologize now for my bazillion stupid questions.
A friend is purchasing our 2003 Fleetwood 32V on a workhorse W22 chassis. We purchased it new and it has served us well. Since I am a stickler for maintenance, I feel that my buddy is getting the deal of a lifetime. I digress.
A friend, who owns a large garage in our area sold me his 2000 Newmar Mountain Aire D on a Spartan chassis. My wife and I love this rig for a multitude of reasons.
Though I knew every screw and bolt on the workhorse, I am an absolute diesel novice. Any suggestions will be more than welcome.
We spend summers at our home in AK and winters at our home in NV with lots of RVing thrown in.
Thank you for having us!

Welcome to the gang, Kitty & Rolf! Glad you decided to join. Sounds like you bring lots of experience in areas other than diesels. Good luck with your new wheels and safe travels!

Glad to have you here with us.

If you want to get more involved with your diesel rig, the best suggestion I can give is to just start asking questions. This is a great place to get answers and opinions. Congrats on your new MA and welcome to the Newmar family!!
