New MH owner
« on: March 14, 2019, 08:48 PM »
I just bought a 1982 Winny from my cousin.  Chevy chassis, and need to get some work done to it.  The chevy part works great, its the home that needs some work.  Hope you all dont mind alot of questions.

Try downloading it again, and this time when it asks if you want a desktop icon, click it.
