HI All,

I just purchased a used 1998 30 foot land yacht as my first RV. It has about 20k miles on it and is in really good condition. Lots of little things to address, of course, but having it checked out soon for a complete list of any issues. Any information on these units you can give me would be greatly appreciated, good and not so good. Looking forward to some great times in this RV.

Thanks to all.

One MAJOR safety thing to look at FIRST:

OEM Rubber fuel lines in these old gassers are NOT compatible with modern, alcohol-laced fuels. Modern fuel deteriorates old rubber in a hurry.

If the lines are not brand new and rated for modern fuel, their total replacement should be first on your list of safety upgrades. A raging fuel fire started by a cracked fuel line and a hot engine has been the end of many of these fine vehicles.

As a side note, obtain and carry a large dry chemical fire extinguisher, preferably several. They are a good idea in any case...

And, welcome to the forums--lots of useful information and helpful folks, especially in the motorhome areas!
