See what we mean... sometimes stuff goes wrong, so just roll with it!
Just keep trying, and as i said before, it will just melt into fun!
I bought my 1984, sight unseen and flew into Kansas to pick it up...
Replaced 2 tires cos of the age, and drove it near 1600 miles back to California... and had a blast!
Worst thing that happened...
A water leak from the recently replaced water heater.... windshield wiper blades that were useless... and a 12v
fuse that kept blowing cos the bathroom fan was seized.
Small things I now know...
It has airbags in the front, and that they needed 60psi or so to keep the front end from wandering in every lane when windy!
Get out there and work those bugs out!
