From the Peoples Republik of Kalifornia. I bought the 83 Itasca Suncruiser as a renovating/remodelling project for me and my 15 year old son to work on. So far it has been fun, we started with removing the entire roof and doing a rebuild due to water damage. Now the roof is mostly back together and we are waist deep in the interior remodelling. Sure will be glad when we can take it fishing. Thanks again for the help on the wiring diagram, I am sure it wont be the last help I will need.

Welcome Steve,

Glade to hear you got your son to help too. That, to me is what it's all about. My son help me out for the last year and a half. But I'm afraid I've lost him. (Girls) Well, it was fun.

Bakersfield, uh? Hmmm...a lot of history there. I like the vintage 1/4 mile stuff too.

I'm also in CA as well. Heh, I love the nick you chose for yourself. So do you listen to Jeff Foxworthy and count up all the ways that "you may be" as well?

Heh, "if your housewarming party includes taking the wheels off. . ."

You Betcha Sanjay! Once I had a big back lot behind the house, weeds got away from me so I got a goat to put back there to eat the weeds. After he had ate all the weeds I found a pickup back there....you might be a Redneck.

I found a pair of Hondas. Before I got this rig I was homeless, living in my car and doing mechanic work to make ends meet. The shop I was working at allowed me to park in the fenced lot, so I wouldn't have to dodge the cops (being homeless is illegal, you know). During that time, I had to go into the shop to use the restroom. This involved "putting my boots on and going outside" . . . You might be. . .

Oh, and since I'm now a fulltimer, my house has a goodly number of miles on it. . .
