2000 Fleetwood Southind 35S is our first RV we just purchased

Hello everyone!

Long time follower...first time posting.

We just bought OUR FIRST RV!!

It is a 2000 Fleetwood Southwind 35S. Ford V-10 with 38K miles All options. Super Clean. 80 hours on gennie!! We agreed on $19K and they are the 2nd owners... how did we do???

Everything works and has been garaged with a beautiful condition exterior.
Interior is clean and stock with the leather captain chairs and recliner.

It only has one slide and we kinda wanted a slide in the bedroom, but because this our first RV, we didn't want to go with a bigger initial investment.

We are already looking into getting a Go Power 120W portable solar unit and looking into internet/wifi connectivity.

Any suggestions or things we need to consider as brand new, first time owners?

Thanks and hello to all of you here. We are looking forward to a really good time adventure!!

A and K

Congratulations on your new RV, and welcome to the RV Lifestyle!
Sounds like you got a great coach at a great price.
If your genie has only 80 hours since new, your may want to run some injector / carb cleaner through it.
Generators are meant to work under load monthly and not sit idle.
The fuel gums up causing the genie to either not start or run rough.
Simply add a bottle or 2 directly into the gas tank and run the genie under load (say with the A/C running) for a half hour.
You are in for exciting times ahead with your new wheels, enjoy.
