Newbie from Santacruz, CA

hey youall, I just found your sight. I just got home with my 1977 32ft executive motor home. I picked it up in northern cali but it took me six days to make home. What a ride first the new carb they put on was junk, then blew the head gaskets an so on. good thing im a mechanic an only paid $600 for my land yacht. I am looking for anyone who might be able to point me in the right direction in finding a manual for this thing.. Im in the process of defunking it an redoing some of the interior. Be cool all an thanksl

Welcome to iRV2. It sounds like you have some exciting challenges ahead of you. The price was right IMHO. Post often and tell us about your travel experiences. Don't be afraid to ask questions.

There are lots of RV junk yards and Used RV Parts facilities that may have a manual you need. Here is a thread RE: RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Fifth-Wheels: Source for used parts. that may help as well.

You may get some other ideas that are better than mine. I found an chev. manual for 1 ton trucks that helped me with the engine and a generic manual for MH that gave me some help with the coach. I just bought my first one and it has been an experience. I overheated 30 min. after I bought it. Finally got it home and began looking at the delamination and the dry rot behind it. I am having to replace a lot of the 1x1 framing material. I have discovered that there are a lot of really good people on this site that are doing the same thing you and I are doing and they have a lot of good ideas and suggestions. Good luck and if I can offer help I will, but remember, I am a Newbie too.
