Thought I'd join and introduce myself to the forum!
I just recently purchased our families first motorhome -- a 1994 Thor Residency 35' class A. We've used and rented, but decided I found a deal I couldn't pass up. Our family does lots of traveling and activities that involve getting out and having fun, including an annual trip to Moab Utah for a week or more of jeeping.
This being my first motorhome, I am looking for some input and some information.
1.) Eventually, I would like to have a concrete pad poured and build a covered, roofed structure for it to stay under and out of the elements. For this year, (and maybe next) as the winter approaches -- that not really an option, so was looking at getting a cover for it. I'd like to think that a cover is a better option than leaving it out in the open and completely exposed, but I want to keep it in the best shape possible. It has been well taken care of to this point and I'd like to keep it that way. It has had very little to no delimitation of the fiberglass outsides. Would having a cover on it for the winter not allow it to breathe? or do they work well enough to allow some airflow?
I was looking at purchasing something like this:
As a new RV owner, whats the best option for me to keep my new RV in the best shape I can? and I'm also looking for suggestions for covers -- i'm into quality products, not just price point. the link to the cover above was more for demonstration purposes of WHAT I was looking for, not necessarily that exact one.
2.) Owner manuals. Is there any good known place I can find / download the manual(s) for my rig and various components of them? Or if there is no owners' manual -- is there any resource for downloading manuals for things like generator systems, fridge/freezers, hydraulic jacks, etc.
3.) winterizing and any other veteran nuggets you can instill on a new owner.
Thanks so much in advance for your replies!
