Have a good and safe one Mark.  We already had ours last month but will be with you in spirit.  And drooling also.

I know, right?  The changes to the site are coming along, but not without its glitches, of course.  Always a learning curve...

Do you like this way better, or the balloon box version?

Not as compact with the text, but maybe a bit more "fun" and "chatty"?

It will work just have to get used to the layout
 

Oz

2020 Nov 14 22:55:53
Well, I'm odd.  So... yeah, kinda fits just right.

Funny layout I mean.  But nice to be able to chat again

Just transitioned to the new portal system.  I have a lot to recreate yet, but it won't take long. How do you like the new chat room?
 

joanfenn

2020 Nov 14 22:54:24
This is odd

New RVer 1990; Tiffin Open Road (p30) project.
« on: June 29, 2020, 04:30 PM »
So I picked up my first motorhome after looking around on and off for a while. I found this one a few miles from my house and pulled the trigger on it. I knew it was going to be a hell of a project cause it hadn’t ran in 10 years. The interior is in surprisingly good condition minus a small leak over the driver seat where the aluminum roof meets the fiberglass front face. I covered the entire roof with heavy gauge plastic to stop any further damage. After that I started looking around in here I decided to try to get the engine running, i followed Lefty’s post on how to get the engine ready to be started, and get her running from a gas can. I will keep you guys updated as i go thru the check list of things to do and add pictures along the way!

Removed the fuel tank to send it out to get cleaned. Also have to find a replacement fuel sending unit/float. Or I’m going to rebuild this one.
