Fortunately this oldies been pretty well maintained-I was presented with a notebook full of receipts and owners manuals dating back to day one. The last owner had the transmission rebuilt two years ago- fridge was replaced about a year and a half ago but is electric only - stove reportedly works but I'm gonna have everything that runs on gas checked out even though he said the tank was inspected last year.
A few years back someone switched it from 16.5 tires to 16s which makes them easier to find. Right now I'm working on the non mechanicals --painting, curtains, etc. There is a leak allowing water into the corners of the cabover which I still have to address but I have run out of money. It looks like it originates at a seam--any suggestions of the least labor intensive way yo fix that?
