Newbie to your world.

Just recently bought my first motorhome and have enjoyed reading all of ya'lls threads. I am now a member and look forward to learning from you. I have an '88 AlumaLite, 29', rebuilt 454 and tranny. We pulled the generator and replaced everything on the backside so hopefully I won't have to do it again.
Other than cleaning and tightening a few things it's ready to try.

Check the roof and signs that the seams are not sealed. Check the tires for age (5 to 7 years). What condition are all the appliances in? I would also sanitize the FW system. Spend the first night in the driveway to make sure it works to your satifation. As you can see by my profile we also have a vintage MH

Good Luck

We've had it for a couple of months, but haven't run any water through it yet. Roof isn't too bad. I am going to replace the vents and reseal it this summer. So far other than a few lights everything works, and for what I paid for it I'm not going to complain.

You should use a bleach and water mixture to sanitize your fresh water system. I think there is a link somewhere here. Maybe someone knows where it is?? If you have an owners manual it might be in there.
Also get a filter to put on the white potable (fresh) water hose to keep out the crud.
