Ramblings about '93 22Ft. Winne.Warrior

After purchasing this unit after about 4 years of setting I have finally got it to the point that it is decent. The only thing that I can't correct is that the graphics are cracking pretty bad. 50K Miles.

First trip out only got 6.5 mpg. Replaced the O2 sensor and the Idle control and milled both exhaust manifolds. Next trip out pulling my Geo metro got 11.5 which I don't think I can improve much on.

The roof seams had pulled out of 2 corners that had been letting some water in. Got it back in position and recaulked and it dried out fairly well.

to date have installed the following:
powered fan in restroom
back facing camera--No window
WH bypass
new iginator in WH
new gas jet in Ref.
new cover on Reg. Vent
New Tires
Battery isolator
Outside Recept. and cable inlet/outlet
Redid the spare tire mounting
50amp DC feed for invertor
various other receptables
Front air bags in coil springs
Replaced front half a windshield--window contractor
On the engine:
Milled both Exhaust Manifolds
New plugs and wiring
Set timing
All filters & oil
All Hoses
Had alternator rebuilt
All belts
O2 sensor
Idle motor
I have repaired the following other things:
Generator--Various problems from setting so long
Tighten Idler arm pivot
Had to take apart and clean furance(Dirt Wasps) and replace sail switch
Main Door was loose in its frame --Had to brace it up internally.
Had to construct another bug screen for dinette window -lost

I have learned a lot by doing this list --not the least is that I probably have too much money in it to ever get it back but it is a step up for us.
If anyone could benefit from any of this e-mail me .

It sure does sound like you did a ton of work, so kudos to you.

Of course, there's always that pesky little "pics or it didn't happen" rule to deal with
