The Peanut lives!

Hi,

An update on The Peanut (my 20' Argosy)...after a few weeks at the mechanic, a major tune up, including a carb rebuild, and a front end brake job...The Peanut lives! We drove it home over the weekend and are planning to take it out the weekend after Fourth of July. Before the pickup, I thought about selling it, but bringing it home certainly changed my mind. Sometimes I think I want a new motorhome, but time in The Peanut always reminds me that classic is better!

Thanks everyone for your advice!

Tiffany

Congradulations. Put some Seafoam in there to clean her out.

If you can get non-ethanol gas for it you will be doing yourself a favor. This might help. If it is going to sit the ethanol will mess things up and it tends to cause rubber parts to fall apart. If it sits more than a month with ethanol you will have problems.

Ethanol-free gas stations in the U.S. and Canada
