Hello from Delawhere

Thanks for the great info on this forum. Purchased a 99 Monaco 36 lapalma and now determining if it is a diamond in the rough or a shapely piece of coal. It is going to the Mechanics on Monday for a maintenance and check out. Rear bushings on sway bar are gone and I have already purchased front and rear from Ebay with info from this forum. Mech will also do the free fix (but I have to pay while installing bushings. RV lists to driver side. Generator leaking oil.

BUT, my wife and 4 children are excited to get back on the road after not having an RV for 10 years. We have already had pop-up, (2) trailers, 1 class C and 1 class A (which is what we started with, go figure.) We will be doing vacationing and weekending only. Lot of work to do. Already have the old flooring removed and may put new in this weekend.

Look forward to chatting with you all.

Hi neighbor. There's not too many of us from Delaware on here.

Good luck with the new rig.

Welcome to iRV2! While we officially live in Pennsylvania, we are close enough to the DE border to nearly see the DE/PA road sign. You've got plenty of good company on the forum!

Thankyou for all you kind reply's and thoughts. Dropped off at mechanics this morning (in the snow) and I hope no surprises. I did complete new wood-like vinyl plank flooring this weekend. Just have to do stairs and moulding. Starting to LOOK better already!

And special thanks to my neighbors in DE and PA!
