Introduction and maintenance question
I have been lurking on IRV2 for quite some time, and finally want to introduce myself.
We recently bought a 2008 Tiffin Phaeton 36qsh. We have previously owned a '14 Newmar BayStar 2901 and '17 BayStar 2903. Loved them! But it's time for some more room and more towing capacity.
We bare no ill will against the Newmar line. Would have happily bought a Newmar product again. It was just a matter of finding a well-built, well-cared for diesel, in the 36' range, with an efficient floor plan. And we found it in our new (to us) Tiffin, which has 60k miles on her. Can't wait to take it on the road.
While I have two dozen questions, right now a couple are key.
#1 With this brand/model/year, what are the essential things that should be or should have been attended to previously? I'm asking about more than just routine maintenance. I'm thinking larger, higher mileage maintenance, recalls, common issues, etc.
#2 Wife's biggest issue is the wrinkled wallpaper, almost exclusively in the driver/passenger area. See photos. Appears that the glue has let go, I figure because of the heat generated at the front of the unit by the massive windshield. Bubbles I can explain, but what's puzzling me is the wrinkling, which makes it look like window or door components have moved significantly. That's impossible. How do I fix all this (I assume new commercial wallpaper is the answer, but how do I keep it from happening again?
PS Why did 3 photos rotate?
Thanks in advance for any and all replies,
