Hey all, I'm new to RVing and new to this forum. I just purchased a 1987 Itasca Sunflyer 31' class A, P30 chassis 454 w/ 71k. I have taken a few trips out and am feeling pretty darn good about my purchase (no real issues).
I do have some questions though, and although you may not have the answers, I am hopeful you can point me in the right direction. I am also fairly confident that this post may be in the wrong location and may upset some long time forum-ers, in that case I apologize - moderators feel free to re-locate.
I have located some basic info on Winnebago's website and was able to find brochures and basic data on my coach. It is the small stuff I haven't figured out.
1. Where do I go to get new wipers, what size, brand etc.
2. What kind of headlight replacements do I shop for, where, what size style etc.
3. Where can I get an exterior porch light lens cover? The winnebago catalog doesn't have one.
I know that stuff sounds silly, but those are really the only things I have concerns about.
Its very solid, everything works, great interior. I am rebuilding my shurflow potable water pump as it had a leak in the switch housing. I have ordered some new LED tail lights for safety and reliability. Just resealed the roof with liquid rubber, that stuff is awesome. Knock-on-wood she is in pretty good shape and I feel like I got a screaming good deal on the rig, I'd tell you how much but its more fun to hear people guess.
Oh one more thing - Under the coach, I have what appears to be an air compressor styler tank. One hose goes into one of my basement storage compartments and has what appears to be a valve stem identical to what you would find on a car tire. The other line goes under the hood and connects to a pull lever under the steering wheel. When you pull the lever it releases air. What could this be for? is it aftermarket? Kind of at a loss on this one.
I hope I found a welcoming RV community here, and look forward to hearing some answers, suggestions and maybe a few guesses. Thanks for having me.
