Default New to Class B RV

Hi all,
I bought a used 1999 Roadtrek Popular 190 (Dodge 3500 chassis) last week.
I'ved owned class A and class C RVs in the past.
The Roadtrek is in great condition overall, but is 20 years old. I'
m sure I'll find information and advice from others on this form.
Ed

Welcome to the forum Ed!

Another old Dodge. You're in good company and man, those things must never die.

Enjoy and be safe out there.

Then it's barely broken in.

Don't hold back if you have any questions or information to share.

PS. My parents had two Dodge-based Xplorer motorhomes in the 70's & 80's which they let me borrow when it was just the Wife and I and we hadn't yet had all three kids. It took 30+ years, but when we decided to travel in retirement, it was always going to be in a "b" for us. We remembered how easy it was to travel and park anywhere due to the small size. So I have a soft spot for the Dodges.

Love my Roadtrek 98' 190. I treat it like it is a healthy senior. Fun and easy to drive and with 115,000 miles just keeps on truck'n. I appreciate the "classic" lines of the older Roadtreks.

Welcome to the forum. Bob

We are fairly new too. 00D190P, currently 190,000km after driving it from east to west.(ns-BC). (8000k) We have had charging problems, new isolator and battery terminals, new tires (Michelin a/t2)new rad, crank seal replaced, complete new front brake system. Hopefully now we can journey on. Ps. Front end parts recently done and new manifold, muffler and pipes. I am now investigating solar panels.
