These could be the best part. It's nice when PO keeps great records and saves everything. I might be wrong but I think I have the complete owners manual and all the manuals from the companies that made the equipment on the coach.

Thanks everyone for the commits.

John, the tires are good. It does not have the over/under drive system. The electric air horns work (electric/air sounds funny).

Right now the only thing I see that needs to be addressed is there is black smoke coming out the exhaust when it starts. I think I need to rebuild the carb to stop this. If anyone has other ideas about the smoke let me know.

Chuck

Looks like you found a jewel.

Make sure you waterproof the coach.

If the gaskets are 20 years old, you should consider replacing them.

The sewer vent pipe cover gaskets, only last 2 to 3 years.
