Hello all, newbie here just purchased my first Class A. 1999 Holiday Rambler Vacationer 36 SGS. I do have a bit of a funny story when I purchased this. My wife and I drove 250 miles to check it out on Dec 31. After looking it over and test driving it we decided to purchase. There was only 1 small issue, we could not get the furnace to work properly so we made an agreement and he took $500 less until I had the LP filled and tested. If everything worked I sent him a $500 check and if it didn't work then $500 should cover any small issue. So I started off on my trek back home with no heat other than a little dash heat. The temps were in the 20's so I froze on my way home for 5 hrs to only realize when I got home there were 3 windows open. I never checked to make sure they were locked so every little bump they opened more. HAHAHA I laugh about it now, and figured out the furnace so all is well.

PS - we have found that hanging a blanket behind the captains chairs really helps to keep the cockpit warmer. So much so that I will be installing a removable rod in the spring.

Thanks for the welcomes. The furnace turned out to be operator error. I love to use forums, I often find real world information more helpful for whatever I'm dealing with. I do have a few questions, but I'm currently browsing thru the topics before I ask.

Welcome aboard, funny story! We also have one window that has to be checked before moving as it will open up as we head down the road.

Good luck.
