Hey, glad to see the new Winnebago forum here, I just swapped my 87 Champion Telstar for a 1999 Winnebago Adventurer 35C.  She is not exactly vintage but then she isn't new either.  Couldn't wait for…Continue

Retired U.S. Air Force. Just bought a 1987 Champion Telstar in great shape except paint. Interior like new (and getting newer). This is a small class C or some call it a B+ RV. It is 23 feet bumper to bumper. Sleeps 4 max. I will post a picture soon.

Re-painted my 87 fiberglass Telstar

It really wasn't as difficult as I had expected.  I got the idea from our friend Stu Mitchell here on GORVs.  Stu reccommended a method called "roll and tip" and a brand called Interlux Brightside.  I knew that I couldn't spray paint my MH and I certainly could not afford from 3,000 to 20,000 dollars for a professional paint job.  (some of the quotes I received by calling around).  I thought by gosh I can roll paint, I have done several houses and many walls, why not a MH.  So I proceded to…

I have that same switch for my hot water heater also but mine is located up next to the monitoring panel about mid way of the rv. Guess I will just have to continue to trace the wire to the source to see what it controls.

Sam - Thanks for the tip, I can hardly wait to visit that area again. The Last time I was there was 1968.

thanks so much for the welcome....I am excited to find this site as I have unable to get anything from a couple of other sites I tried to can be a challenge traveling with children with special needs but it can also add to the enjoyment when we stop and visit places or see something en route that gets them excited...does your grandaughter like to travel with you? (the biggest isssue for us is that my three children dont do so great with unexpected changes or schedule differences, so i have to do lots of prep and updates as we go!!).  I do have a somewhat silly question...I know that the Telstar (mine is a 27 foot, 1987) is supposedly fiberglass, which seems correct for my roof, but the sides have peeling paint etc and truly look (and feel) like wood paneling on the outside...could this be accurate or is this just how fiberglass can look as it ages?...I know there is wood inside as it has got a significant amount of dry (and wet) rot on the inside walls/floors due to the ongoing long term dripping of water into the spaces underneath the trim/support for the awning arms/bars etc. I would be interested in your input on that...I have a million other questions but will start with that

Thank you for the welcome and the info, Sam Green! We'll be looking for tips and info many times, I'm sure. Our Transtar is a real gem, we're getting to know it and things are going well so far! Learning as we go...

Sam, I would not respond to that. This site won't ask you to verify e-mail. Pat will have to check into this when he returns. Gary
