Call me crazy,,,,

I am going to North Carolina this month to see my son and daughter-in-law, well ok to see the grand kids,,,,

so I was looking on line and found something to stay in while we are there, instead of kicking the gkids out of their bedroom, and then maybe the son and daughter can use it when he goes downrange to florida,,,

really crazy but I found this
the guy says it has 16000 original miles and runs like a dream, breaks are good and no leaks, so I am going to go look at it, and see what happens,

yes I will, and probably have the breaks checked too while I am there, my son can look at and change all the hoses and such if it needs them, I will make sure to buy extra to have in it, and just give it a overall inspection, I kinda know what to look for now having mine stripped down to the bone, as far as leaks and where to look, because some are hidden where you might not think to look,, anyway thats that

Be sure to check the engine hoses and vac lines while your at it.
Radiator Hoses and Vac lines are the first to let go in old Coaches!
And if you have ther ability I'd check the fan clutch on the engine.
If it starts overheating and you're not hearing the fan clutch lock up occasionally it's probably toast. It will sound like someone fired up a Jet Engine under the hood when running Highway speeds.

That one simple part can ruin an entire engine and trip.



I'm near the DFW area if you run into trouble with it on you way through North Central Texas. Not far off of I 20!
