    Hey bbqman, welcome to the best forum. Also watch out for 730, he is a rv tech and will give you a lot of different ways to correct something. All in all he is straight up on repairs, as he has helped me out alot. There is a magic word that is a place that will set him off in a heart beat. Now if you don't tell who told you I will tell you, the magic word is BEACH, he just goes nuts on that word as that is what he loves to go and camp. So hang around and you will see we have a lot of fun here as we joke alot with each other but any questions you ask will be replied to. Good luck on your RV and if we run into you on the road I love pork rinds and crackin. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Did you mean to say "14000 miles" or should that have been 140,000 miles? If it was really 14K they must have never used it!

    Re: new to me 19i97 damon

    Yes, it has 14,657 on it today when I picked it up......have driven 823 miles today well since 1 am.....just returned home about and hour ago...alll seemed to go pretty well, lots of wind, rain, ice but no snow. back down where at least no icy roads. It needs cosmetic work, cleanup.....decals.....and a few other things. It has set alot. The aux battery system isn't working....will take a look tomorrow. But, overall I believe a very good decision. :)

    Re: new to me 19i97 damon

    Small probs so far. generator had a gas leak but quit after ran for 15 min....must have been a dry gasket. Also, muffler end blew off, when starting. I think it had ice accumulated in it. Found a broken connection on aux batteries, think they will charge now when rv is running. Will have to buy two new ones, shortly. Havn't figured out all the lights yet. but have been using the manual and have most of them. Furnace works very well. Water system is winterize so won't check it now. Have to buy a spare. Will then try to figure what to take for fulltiming. Clothes, tools etc. then put the rest in storage, until I decide to dispose of whatever. Hope to buy an awning. soon, will need to budget for it though, havn't looked at any yet. :)

    Re: new to me 19i97 damon

    Never had an awning, but Iwant one because I cook Pork Rinds and Cracklins.....Have an ez up but yuk....lol. Probably 16 or 20 ft. don't know yet. Also maybe a small trailer to carry supplies. have used an concession trailer, van and pickup. for many years, but am scaling back and not working 40 to 45 wks per year. Wife is in nursing home and I am planning on slowing down some. maybe 30 shows. Just trying to figure it all out. I had been thinking about a MH but this came available about 6 or 7 days ago. WEll, it's mine now. Been, enjoying tinkering with it all day.

    Hello bbqmqn65, my only question is, where are you cooking????? I love them cracklins, my Mama (rest her soul) used to make cracklin corn bread and I haven't had any in a while. For Rod's benefit I am stopping off in Myrtle Beach this weekend on the way back from the Grandson's birthday party in NC. I'll dip my toes in the water for you. And just to add insult to injury we were at Hunting Island last weekend. :) :) :)

    Presently in Cave City, Ky. 20 degrees and falling..... whats a good price for two aux batteries. Ones in rv are original and won't stay charged but for a couple of hours usage. Furnace only
    nothing else, With new batteries what should I expect. Also thinking of an solar charger for the roof. Any suggestions

    Re: new to me 19i97 damon

    genset runs well, started, without any unnecessary probs. needs a muffler. Had end cap come off. Not used enough or just age. Like me...... Found a small moisture problem on passenger side where the mirror mounts.....will have to pull inside panel to see what is or has leaked at one time. Suspect this is part of getting started. Sure wish I could leave today. Long story.
    My wife of 40 years came down with alzheimers at age 49...kept her at home for 11 years, with nurses the last 4. But, when you run out of money, and assets. your plans are changed. 2 yrs ago had to place her in a nursing home. Almost quit everything then. Had sold my businesses, disposed of my home. TennCare took over and then I had to dispose of my home and was left with very little. But, I am thankful she is being taken care of. The disease is devastating to all involved. She hasn't shown any recognition of me for 2 1/2 years. Really no one. just exists. So I have had to start over. Doing what I know how to do. Use to own, a BBQ restaurant and Convennience Store. Cooked Pork Rinds and Cracklins on the side. Now it is what I do to live. That and my retirement lol...Have taken on another project, but have decided not to quit, till I drop. She enjoyed the other MH many years ago. So I know she would like to be with me...But, I will enjoy this segment of my life and proceed. So, now I look forward to everyday again. Hopefully, will be a profitable year for all. I believe it will be a lot better than most think.
