Good Morning everyone! I am new to the site. I just purchased my first class C motorhome. (My parents owned RVs for many years) It is a 1984 Shasta. Pictures soon to come Unfortunately it has been sitting for quite some time. I am trying to get it livable right now, after i get that accomplished I will focus on getting it ready to travel.
Its missing plywood under rear couch/bed and under one of the dinette seats. Looks like they have remove the plywood for the bed over the cab and installed shelving. I am thinking of removing this and replacing the plywood. (I have kids and need the sleeping space.) So, other than that and some cleaning I should be ready for an RV park at least.
Now for the fun part... I notice the previous owner installed a toolbox on the back and on either side is the batteries. The boxes aren't waterproof so, the batteries have taken a beating. The cables are all corroded and battery terminals are corroded. I tested the batteries and seem to be holding a charge. It does have an Onan gas generator. I was able to get it to crank but not fire up. I checked the oil but, haven't checked the air filter yet. The hot water heater and stove are both LP. I noticed that the metal tubing going to the LP tank has been disconnected. I am having a hard time getting it to reconnect. Do you folks know if I can get the LP tank filled or do I need to get a BBQ pit style tank and run different tubing?
So, as I play around with stuff I will have more info and certainly more problems. Thanks Y'all!
