We are new members to this site and have found it very useful!

I have owned this motorhome for 3 winters now.
The 1st two were winters in the AZ and CA areas and this year we are travelling the perimeter of the USA currently in Georgia and heading south to Florida in a few days.

8.1L Gas Pot, 2 Slides.

Some projects I will be attacking soon are:

1. Replacing the old style TVs to new flat screens.
2. Finding & fixing a leak in bedroom slideout (when it rains floor gets wet).
3. Servicing the transmission as soon as I can identify it.
4. Upgrade lighting to LED's.

This site has been excellent and we look forward to helping others where ever we can.
Would like to connect with other Bounder people with similar vintage rigs.

Thank you and safe travels to all!

Welcome to iRV2, If you are looking for LED's you might find this site helpful. I purchased all new Marker Lights from them. Good to work with.

I bought LEDs from this site. Less expensive and no shipping. One issue I have heard is that your brake/turn signal make not work because they draw too little power for signal box. I have also heard that you are best to purchase red LEDs for your red lense lights on exterior. Much better illumination.
