Hi from a newbie with a Dodge Class B!

I live in Denver, Colorado and my rig is a 1978 Dodge Tradesman B300 with a raised roof camper conversion. Very cool - fully self contained and all the appliances work. 360 Engine - 727 Tranny. Dash air works!

I do have some questions as I know nothing about the 2 battery rig - inverter etc.

I am just replacing some belts and doing a tune up etc. Overall, she runs well, starts right up, has a good number of new parts and what seems like only 78,000 miles (*guess* as it has only 5 numbers but the rest of the rig does not look like 178,000) Sadly, I do not have all maintenance records, or really any, but what the heck!

Needs to be smogged here in Colorado, not an issue in my opinion, has all the original smog gear on board. No cats, I am hopeful that the 9000 GW will except me (?)?

So, we are planning a first trip, then we shall see! I have only a grand into this so that is not too much. The dual exhaust pounding out the roar of the 360 makes it worth it!

Welcome to iRv2, ernzo2. Sounds like you found a real winner of a vintage Class B.

Feel free to ask questions in the appropriate forum about your electrical system, batteries, etc.
