Good morning, all; 

     This is sort of a status report: 

     The 1987 Winnebago Elandan WCP31RT is still going, and it has gone this Summer.  Trips to Eastern Washington, Eastern Oregon (one for the total solar eclipse on 2017 August 21), several trips for Washington State Good Sam Club gatherings, one for the FMCA Northwest Rally, and a couple just for the fun of it.  

      One thing is that it is beginning to show its age in some unexpected ways.  There have been a few problems showing up with the electrical wiring for the exterior lighting, and a few parts have needed to be replaced.  One was the exterior lighting switch, and the other was the brake light switch.  The brake light switch is a trial being mounted on a plate where access to the back side for the mounting/adjusting nut is not easy.  Oh, well.  Mechanically it is still doing well, but the intensive work two years ago to improve the engine cooling system has paid some dividends.  The next trek will be this coming Tuesday out to the Oregon Coast. 

          Enjoy; 

          Ralph

Hi Shawn, welcome to the Winnebago group. My 1970 Winnebago F17 motor home has always been good to me too.

Good morning, Sleeth; 

We are out here.  I have been on two trips already this year, and I am  supposed to be at another gathering this weekend, but there are some other things that need to be done. 

Still working on mine also.  Just found a broken hinge on the closet door, and have not yet located an exact replacement.hinge.  I wonder if Winnebago Industries still has any in stock?

Enjoy;

where did all the Winnie folks gone?

Comment by Jimco_W001 on March 9, 2017 at 7:44pm

Hi Aimee, sometimes the ID tag is located on the door frame by the hinge side. You have to open the door and look from the inside.

If you find it there please let me know.
