Old guy with a new hobby

We are new members who just picked up our first RV. Its a 1990 Winnebago Chieftain that needs some TLC. I figure I have the next six month's to get the rig back in decent shape from lack of use. I expect I will have plenty of questions on some of the forums about repairs. I think I can handle most of them myself, (I hope). Besides I need something to occupy my time, I retired last October.

Hi Bubba! Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you here! We needed another "old guy", I was beginning to feel like the Lone Ranger! Congrats on the new rig! You'll have lots of fun, and maybe a few headaches, getting it up to snuff! Good luck & God bless!

Hi Bubba, welcome to the forum. Don't worry about having time on your hands, you'll find yourself so busy you'll wonder how you had time to work. Besides, I'm sure "she" can provide you a small list.

Welcome to the forum. If you don't have anything to do I have a 39 foot 5er that could use a good wax job!
