hungry for help and info

thank you for the welcome. I am a disabled veteran, dont type to well so sorry for any mistakes. Im brand new to RV's just about to purchase one, I think a 2005 Alpha 40' with 22000 miles on it. looks real good need to check out all the mechanics. I really need lots of questions answered since this will be my new full time home. Is there anyone who might be willing to call me and answer them Or I could call anyone who is willing to be bled of all their RV knowledge. Little at a time of course! Im Richie Lewis from NY-Florida and my cell is 561-574-2878. Thanks again for your welcome, hope to hear from someone. 24-7 is fine. Respectfully, Richie

No direct Alpha knowledge here either. If you have general questions post them on the thread and you will get a wealth of answers.

Generally if you have a competent RV mechanic go over the house and a good mechanic go over the power train you should be good.

Main issue for me is does the floor plan fit your wants and needs? No use in getting a really good RV that is not comfortable.

Hi Richie! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Sorry I don't know anything about the Alfa either! Hope you find the perfect rig for your needs!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!



THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY!

Richie,
While I personally don't have any first hand knowledge of Alpha coaches, we've been around Diesels and have done extensive maintenance, repairs, alterations, fabrications and more, for years and years. I'm not an expert, not specifically trained in schools or certified in anything but, seat-of-the-pants stuff stuff and, lots of help from knowledgeable folks on here, have helped tremendously in keeping our coach on the road. If you have questions I can't help with, I'll let you know.

There are many, many DIY types on here that have been ultra helpful for many years. Good luck on your coach purchase.
Scott

Hi Richie here are a couple of pages out of the motor home comparison guide, it will give you a little information on the coach. I have walked them and I liked what I saw, I'm sure that most parts needed would be easy to find! I too appreciate your service and welcome to the forum! Regards
