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.

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.

Just had JR's RV in Findlay go over the roof and all the vents. Pulled them and replaced them all. New vent fans and all are now installed and re, newly sealed so We should be fine.

I took the coach out for the first time today and it did great. 70mph was no problem, went to a small town called Post that is off the caprock from Libbock and has the only thing close to a hill to go up. Went up the hill around 57 to 60 mph, I have towed boats up this same hill with the same speed results so was very happy.

Had a little shake in the steering wheel at higher speeds, so I'm going to get alignment and wheel balance checked.

Way to go, Chuck...you won't want to stop...
While they're balancing and aligning, have them check the integrity of the front airbags...if they are original, they may be shot or ready to give out...

Question

Another question, the cabinets above the dash has a two gang ivory blank cover over a hole cut between the cabinet doors. Anyone know what was there?
