I have no idea what I'm doing

This Suday I will be purchasing a 1990 Tiffin Open Road for $1000.

It runs ... and that's about the nicest thing I can really say about it. I will need a hand for sure, so I've joined irv2 in anticipation. I bought it to move into as I transition out of the military back into "the real world".

Looking forward to the community's experience and advice on my journey to fixing this thing up and making my way through the next chapter.

Talk to y'all again soon!

Welcome. Ok it runs, Now from the "Tone" of that statement, I hope it stops (Old not exactly a joke) (A vehicle that won't run is safe, a vehicle that won't stop is not).

What have you found so far that is wrong?

Page 2: What converter does it have (may be part of the power distribution center if both fuses and breakers are behind a common door). That is often worthy of upgrade on older units.
Home is where I park it!
