"You might be right about having to cut the lower section and then patch it in later. On ours, there was a seam on the sides of the bumper, but yours doesn't have one. Before you cut anything, get under the bumper and confirm that…"
"Take the whole grill off...and the bumper. My whole front end came off when I rewired the headlights. Under that trim strip will be MORE screws, and the nose WILL come off..at least enough to remove the engine. "
"The grill is what I was talking about. There SHOULD be screws around the black section on yours, where you can remove that entire piece. The only pictures you have of the sides of your rig are blocked by trees in the front RIGHT where I…"
"On our old 1989 Holiday Rambler Imperial, you could remove the engine out the front. First you have to take off the grill and the entire fiberglass nose/headlight housing...which you do by removing all the screws. The radiator has to…"

We made it safely to a Flying J in Ashtabula,…"
"The high tolls in Indiana are HIGHWAY ROBBERY!!! I-80/I-90 is only around 150 miles through Indiana...and by the time we got to Ohio, it was over 40 bucks! For CRAPPY roads! Roads ALMOST as bad as Minnesota, but at least Minnesota…"
"The RV Hall of Fame was pretty awesome! May West's House Car was there, as well as Lindburgh's personal travel trailer...and a whole lot more! SO COOL! They even had my dream car there, with a 1930s tear drop trailer in…"
"We made it safely through Wisconsin and Illinois, and stayed at a rest stop on I-80/I-90, about 60 miles away from Elkhart, Indiana. So guess where we are going today?
You guessed it! The RV Hall of Fame!!! We are going to visit the museum and take…"
"Sounds like a plan, Jimco! Thanks! We'll be in Indiana at the RV Hall Of Fame by tonight, and then we are going to check out the museum, and leave the next day. They let you stay 2 nights for free there if you are checking out…"
