Howdy!  This is ol' parrothead from SE Kansas.  My first wife and I have a brand new 1978 Winnebago Chieftain clas A motorhome.  We really enjoy it always gives me something to do in my spare time, since something is always broken, etc.  :-\

I'm in need of a few odds and ends for it, so if someone is parting out one of these beauties, please let me know.

Thanks!? Let' see... I would really like to install an awning and I need some drawers for the bathroom, but if I can't find good originals, I can make some.? I would like to replace the plastic refrigerator vent cover (on the roof) with an aluminum one.? It also looks like I'm going to need to replace the rooftop a/c unit.? Mine is a Coleman.? I also can't get my old Coleman furnace to light.  Other than that, i need a LH exhaust manifold and I would like to find a set of used aluminum valve covers (to stop the oil leaks).? I've already replaced the carpet, refrigerator and hot water heater.?
Do you know a way to make this 440 powered beast get better gas mileage?? :D

There are RV salvage yards all over the country; you might look there for parts.  We have some of them listed in our "Resources for Rvers" - see the www.rvforum.net main page and look for the "resources" link.  A search on "salvage" should turn up a list.

Thanks for the replies.  kkolbus - - No, I'm not making any plans.  If anyone was doing that, it would be my wife.  I just get a kick out of calling her my "first wife".  It's the truth!  10 wonderful years and counting.
