After looking into motorhomes for the last 3 years, and taking a 2.5 week trip around the great lakes in a tent, we have decided having our own bathroom and bed was something we wanted in our life.
After looking all fall, we finally found a home we liked: A 1997 Damon Outlaw. We flew out to Idaho last Sunday, and on Tuesday started driving it back. This forum was invaluable for our research over the last year. We bought the RV at Bish's and they treated us like we bought a brand new diesel pusher rather then a 5 year old gasser.
I do have 1 question - I understand how to use the parking brake - Except when the jacks are down. When I turn the key it howls b/c the brake is engaged, but I can't disengage the brakes b/c if I do the jacks will all immediately retract. Any ideas?
Can't wait to get it back and start personalizing it. We are going to be turning the garage into a bedroom. Right now we are sleeping on the hide-a-bed. The 10yo has claimed the shrimpy upper bedroom as his own.
It's holding up well in this weather - hopefully nothing freezes until I get it back home and winterize it!
