Well after AAA wasting 3 hours of my time and sending the wrong truck to do the job , it won't be towed untill tomorrow . They wanted me to sign a damage waiver before they towed it saying if they damaged the wheels , tires , bumper, or entire front end they would not be liable . The sent the wrong truck that was two wide to get under the wheels so they were going to use a sling . Total bs .... I told them to get the right truck which they refused to do untill tomorrow . I will be having a long conversation with the manager at AAA tomorrow morning . I can only imagine how bad this would have been if I was out on the road and needed a tow from them .

Towing insurance isn't cheap, so I do understand their issues. And AAA (American Automobile Assn&gt does not own tow trucks, they only contract with towing companies, so they can provide their members with services.

Don't be surprised if you have to pay for this tow. Big dollars!

Been tinkering with it today . Replaced a few light bulbs and tried out as much stuff as I could . The furnace works great . Its a ducted unit and has a tear in one of the ducts I'll have to fix .

With a little starting fluid , the generator fired up and coughed for a minute or two and then it ran great from then on . Need to replace a section of pipe for its exhaust and do some rewiring so I can totally start it up and shut it of from inside . I was impressed how well it ran with year old gas in the tank .

The roofs the first thing I am going to spend $$ on , just want to figure out what I want to do with the inside incase placement of pipes and other cutouts change so I can plan ahead and do it right . I need to measure my vents and stuff and get some new ones ordered to start the roof . Considering removing the norcold fridge and putting an ac only unit in . That way I could place the fridge on the other side of the rv with the rest of the kitchen stuff and not cut a new hole in the side for the vent .

Having a generator and all , is there any real benefit to keeping the old fridge to run off propane ? If the vent went out the roof like the newer ones I wouldn't care as much .The fridge works good , freezer gets nice and cold running on lp gas , haven't tried the ac portion of the fridge yet .In really nice shape for its age .

I'll try and gets some pictures tomorrow if the weather is decent, but I want to change the layout inside . The previous owner remodled the interior in 94 . A lot of the available space is taken up for storage with drawers or cabinets .

I found an original brochure for this model RV on eBay for $13 . might just have to get it just to see what it looked like when new before I decide on anything .

If that fridge works on both propane and 110volt I would keep it, If it is shot then maybe the 110 volt might work for you but the propane will work better than running the generator as it doesn't use as much as most people think. They are really efficient and are lighter too!

I am getting on it . Just shopping around for the best price for the material . Going to call some local places monday , so far $190 + shipping is the best price I have found for the epdm roof for 8'6" by 26 feet . Going to pick up some big tarps tomorrow to use in the meantime . Not going to replace anything inside , just tearing out the stuff I want to change to plan ahead for the new .
