"Phil my 89 Chieftain has front and rear AC but has a large toggle type switch above the refrigerator it allows you to choose front or rear unit. The older units because they run off 30 amp shore power can only run one unit at a time. Bill"

Tell us a little About Yourself
I and my wife, Deb, have been rebuilding a 1989 Winnebago Chieftain, to ready ourselves for retirement. We live in a very small town across Frenchman's Bay from Bar Harbor. We plan on using the RV for wintering in a warmer climate and summer here at home. We raised three children 2 boys, 1 girl, have 4 grandkids. I have always loved Hockey ( goaltender since 5 y.o.) and skiing, hate golf. Mother and I because we are only 1 1/2 miles from Acadia National Park do hike and camp locally.
What Interests you about the world of Good Old RVs?
I think the title says it all, I own a good old RV.
Anti-spam question: 4 plus 1 equals what?

Thanks Lydia

Thanks Lydia for the thoughts and prayers, healing up well, just needed to take it slow. Actually had the Chieftain out last week for a short two nightery (live in Downeast Maine no shortage of campgrounds). We were surrounded by all these big new rigs, but everyone commented on how good the '89 looked. Glad everyone had a great time out there and I'll be at the next one. Bill

Wish I was going to be there.

To all GOrvers, Due to shoulder surgery this past April my plans of finishing the reno on my 89 Chieftain is are on a short hold. I just want to wish everyone going to the rustic retreat safe travels, have a great time and keep the rubber side down. God Bless Bill
