So we purchased this 95 36' DP Land Yacht a few months ago and got to work going through it replacing and tightening screws, cleaning, fluid changes, fixing electrical gremlins etc. but finally got her out on the road this past weekend and thought I'd share....
We are in Arizona and down here a big winter sport is the California sand dunes where we take our quads and buggies into the huge sand dunes and basically let loose! The dunes are about a 500 mile trip and the coach worked great. We cruised at 65 on the speedo but seemed to be passing a lot of big rigs so I need to get the GPS out and see what we really are doing.
The coach handled great for how old it is with a little swaying but nothing to white knuckle over. we did have a couple issues and things to work out before the next trip in two weeks!
1. the microwave function doesn't work? the convection does but for some reason the microwave doesn't? makes the sound but doesn't labor the genny or get hot?
2. You can see in the pictures a rock or something got thrown in to the trailer and bounced back and broke the taillight lens.....any idea where I can get a replacement?
3. Also pictured is oil spray on the front of the trailer I've reading up and think I overfilled with oil and it's obviously coming from the draft tube? time to double check that and see it the radiator has been affected.
4. also need to get a turned down exhaust tip!
Other than that all went well and really had a great time, big difference from the 5th wheel, love being able to have hot coffee on demand
