Taking 3 month honeymoon in new-to-us 1989 mini winnie

My fiancÚ and I are new to the whole RV thing. We have made it out on two weekend trips as test runs, but nothing more yet. We plan to do a circle of the western united states.

The RV we purchased had sat for about 15 years so doing a lot of fixing up. Just got the refrigerator to work on the LP gas, but doesnt work on electrical. Good resources for that?

We finally made the decision to tow a little pick-up, and am happy with that decision after reading around in the towing section of this forum. Well also bring two bicycles. any more suggestions?

We have two little dogs - a Maltese and a chihuahua/mini greyhound mix. They are great little car travelers, but unsure how life on the road will be ... Suggestions?

Priscilla and Danny

Weel you have a good start there...two dogs and a Minnie Winnie. Since the old gal has sat for so long, I would replace/rebuild the calipers/wheel cylinders, replace all filters, replace all fluids, new tires, new engine hoses and new belts.
