Newly retired from Georgia

New from Georgia. Wife and I took "early retirement" last year in June. Sold our home and bought a 1997 Newmar Kountry Star motor home. We live in it full time. Still have some excess baggage, belongings, to shed. You know? Storage things. We hope to find some "host" places in the future to stay at and work for camping fees. Any ideas on how to "seal out" the breezes that come from the front end of the coach while parked in the winter months? Don't want to make it ugly, just some drafts come from under the dash and in that general area. This is a brand new adventure for us. We just thought about it for years and took the plunge last year when we found this coach. So far so good. Still learning, coach has 46000 miles in it now, hope to put many more miles on it while we can. It is a 454 gas engine.

Welcome aboard. Plumbers putty is available at most hardware/home improvement stores. It is a soft pliable material the come in a brick, can be torn off a placed into holes and cracks around hoses and wires. It may not work well around moveable rods like accelerator and brake arms. You’ll have to get a fiver to eliminate them.

There is a “WORKKAMPER” section further down the main forum page that may give a clue now and then on camp host and work positions.

Good luck, have fun and keep us posted.

Long time ago, I had a 88 Bounder that had similar air leaks. I found that the best time to plug those leaks was when I was parked with the wind blowing towards the coach nose. I could then feel the air coming in. good luck. I used body putty available form NAPA.
