newbie checking in

Hi everyone,
We are avid snowbirds as we are from the Yakima Valley, so our motorhome has to be a Alpine coach, actually this is our second one. We were on our way to Arizona and our turbo blew up on the mile high pass north of weed.

As a Quick note , The techs at Cummins -West at Redding are doing a great job repairing our coach. They will have us back up and running Weds. they think, if our C-A-C arrives in good shape. !st brkdwn in 9 yrs owning alpine coaches. Not bad!!

Welcome! This is a great forum with a lot of helpful people, and I'm sure you will be glad you joined First ya gotta go over Ashland Mt. pass, and then they hit you with Weed! Those are hard on any motorised vehicle, for sure. Good luck with the turbo repair.

I said "I'll own a motor home when pigs fly"...Well I now own the "pig", and love it!
