Hello everyone, I am a new member and first time owner of an RV. I am sad to say that I got myself into a mess with this RV as I bought something without doing my research so I have found myself googling a lot and this forum always seems to come up.

Then I also bought a dinette set from someone who suggested this forum too, so here I am.

I recently purchased a 1997 Four Winds Hurricane, it only has 46k on the engine. I was told it had a leak in the past but had since been fixed externally and had started to be fixed inside...... yeah nope that was a lie. So now im trying to figure out what I have to do to get this going lol.

Im a 40 year old father of 3 who has always wanted an RV to take the my family on road trips, so now that I have one I am going to make sure its perfect for us, may just take a little more money than I have to get it going but time shall tell.

I look forward to picking your brains and making new friends on here.

Stay Safe

Welcome to the forum! There are many great forum members willing to provide help anytime. When you get a moment, please create a 'signature' block with information about your coach -- year, make, model, floor plan, etc. (such as my signature block). With that info you don't have to type your coach info everytime and forum members can provide help quicker.

Again, welcome to the forum!

Always nice to see if a fellow South Carolinian, as for the trouble with the rig, lots of rot, a few leaks and likely a bad fridge. but hey, just means I get to have a clean slate to work with right.
