Question New member and questions

I am a new member. Purchased a 1990 Dodge Ram class B. Is in excellent condition. No operating manual and I am new to these. Need instructions for:
How to turn on gas
Is furnace automatic by turning on thermostat
Exactly how to attach new sewer hose to outlet to empty
Which outlet is for sewage and which is to empty fresh water tank
When you fill fresh water tank, does overage automatically go into sewage tank or do you pour water down toilet with freshener/breakdown product
Taking out first time next week. THANK YOU !

A 1990 class B. If you let us know what make and model of motorhome we might be able to help further.

Also, check Youtube for videos on how to do things on your B. That's probably the best way to get an introduction on how to do things.

Turn on gas at outside propane tank, furnace will be self starting if there is an on/off switch on the thermostat, just turn it on and turn up the temp. There will probably only be 1 sewage/grey water tank with one outlet. When filling fresh water any overage will come out of the vent right where you fill it, it's full when that happens. Tank freshener product is poured into toilet.

Default just getting started

Hi, new to this forum. I don't have an RV yet but I am researching Class B vehicles. No towing, just myself, and possible multi-month traveling is what I am interested in.

My budget is probably $50K USD at the moment. I have seen a few Pleasure Way Excel vans for sale and like the looks and size. Don't know how they stack up to others in my price range. That's why I am here!

cheers
Roger

Test drive it and see if it "floats" on the road. Floaters can take the fun out of driving.

I don't understand what you mean by "floats". Instability at highway speeds?
Also, thanks for the reply.
