California PSPS and fires

So we just experienced 5 days of no electric in our home due to power shutoffs in case of fire and at the same time another big fire that came within 30 miles of us.  We never used the generator before and hoped that it being 38 years old wouldn't be a problem.  It worked!  So thanks to our old motorhome we were ready if we had to evacuate and we suffered little with the power outage.  Thank you Onan!

Hi everyone I have a 1977 Dodge that I bought new rims for. I have 6 16.5 in rims for sale if anyone is looking for some. I swapped my old ones for some Ford rims. They need paint but are good rims. I was asking 300.00 but that's negotiable. I'd like to see if someone can use them instead of just scrapping them. Call or text me at 443-968-6535 or email copman87@aol.com

1971 Holiday Rambler Travel Trailer Manual

Hello, I just bought a campsite that has 1971 holiday rambler travel trailer on it. It is in very good shape, but unfortunately the previous owners could not provide a manual for it. Would anyone have any ideas as to how i might get one? Thanks in advance.

Hello New to GORV! Looking for anyone with any info on Juno Real-Lite

Hi all,

So glad to have found this website!  My husband and I just bought a 1984 Juno Industries Real-Lite truck camper in pretty decent shape.  Found the info on here and bought a brochure off Ebay today.  Really trying to figure out the construction method.  Anyone know something about these old campers?  Thanks and am looking forward to sharing some pics when we pick her up this week.

Does anyone else own a TEC travel cruiser motorhome?

We just purchased a 1975 TEC travel cruiser 25 ft motor home with a Chevy 454 engine. Does anyone else have one? TEC also made Travel Mate and lark motorhomes as well. There's little info on them so would be thrilled to find another owner. TEC stands for Travel Equipment Corporation.

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

1984 chevy g30 gm electronic cruise control in a shasta motorhome

I am having a problem getting my cruise to work. The cruise was disconnected  before I purchased the rv. Searching the internet I cannot find a cruise servo that looks like the one I have. I have a gm installation instruction manual that came with the rv. Not a single part number. It looks like the one in the rv. The servo is a tube shaped unit about 6 inches long and 2 inches diameter. It is mounted on the frame next to the trany. Can anyone tell me something about this type of cruise…

Noah works pretty good!

Well, we've taken the motorhome out twice now and only a few problems.  The first trip we had a squeeling belt so our speed was limited to about 52mph.  When we arrived in Anderson, Ca the fairgrounds only had 50A power or 20A power.  The 20A didn't like us adapting to 30A so we used two regular extension cords.  One went straight to the refrigerator and the other to a power strip in the motorhome.  It worked just fine!  Now we have a 50A to 30A adapter.  Then next trip my wife took it all…
