Hello from tip of Tx

Hi everyone.
We are from Ohio and now live in South Texas. We have a Winnebago Adventurer. We plan on spending a lot of time in it in the next few years.
I was hoping on finding a lot of useful info on this forum. (lookin' good so far). We will be traveling (hopefully) to Ohio a lot more as the grandchildren are growing up fast. I am missing too much of them.
Hello again to all and I promise I will try to keep the questions simple.

1st question: How do I overhaul the motor without my husband knowing?/?

Welcome to iRV2. We lived in Ahia for 22 years (north of Nerk) before coming home to Texas in 1997. We can just about make the trip between Ahia and Texas with our eyes closed.

Glad to have you with us, and post often.

Ahia Buckeye,

WELCOME! I am very new to the RV world (3 yrs in July) and the people here have been nothing but wonderful responding to my questions. They make it very clear that there is no stupid questions and you should never hesitate to say 'I don't get it'. Trust me, I've said that myself!

I hope that you enjoy it here.

So, are you complaining that your husband pays to much attention to what you do?

If you won't start something there won't be something.

Now to give the lady a real answer to her deep can pull the engine and start the overhaul while he is busy doing the laundry and ironing. Just make sure you get'er done before he runs out of laundry detergent or worse....starch.

Answer to question #1

It is certainly an intriguing question ! I would think that nothing short of shooting him would do the trick. Perhaps a well aimed flesh wound that would keep him hospitalized for the amount of time that it would take to R&R the engine and get it rebuilt.
Are you planning on removing the engine yourself ??
