So. I still haven't seen her in the "flesh" so to speak. Juno is still in Denver while the better half works out some kinks before getting her across country. Had hoped he'd be here for Christmas but that's half the fun of RVing, right? Life is no longer in your control.
I have gotten some great shots on skype of under the seats while I'm perched next to same better half as he changes out fuses. Very clean under there. She has been well-maintained.
That said, we found some things the last owner missed - her prior records and the original camper manual tucked away in a cubbyhole AND,this was oddly cool - a magic eight ball. We've decided we're going to do a trip where every decision we have to make is going to be decided by that :-)
I've never found anything about this particular Mallard Class C, so plan on scanning and putting the manual online in case anyone else finds it helpful.
So far there have been some minor issues he's had to deal with - changed out the alternator diode, put in a new starter battery, spark plugs, fuses and taillights. She doesn't like the cold in Denver. It's been bitter there some mornings and she doesn't like to start then. The BF always gives her a long warm-up time and then she smooths out and 'purrs like a kitten'. Hopefully she'll be happier in warmer climes.
And, we finally found the house battery - in the engine compartment, just hidden a bit out of sight. That may make things complicated when it comes to creating a bigger battery bank? Well, will worry about that when we get to it.
