On one hand, the motor's hardly even broken in with that kind of mileage, but on the other hand, its almost 40 years old and has been sitting for quite a while before we drove it the two hours home. Thoughts?
After years of Porsche restoration, we came to find that one of the worst things for a vehicle is sitting for long periods.
Change out all fluids
Oils become acidic, I just change ATF (only 5k miles), put on a transmission cooler and filter on my truck that has been sitting for 8 years.
Changed break fluid, differentials, ...., the truck has 200k miles on it
Have happy RVing, time to break in that baby
