    There should also be a main inline fuse from the positive side of the house battery bank that may have blown. Generally the main fuse is within 16" of the battery itself.

    About To Be A Full Timer

    My wife and I are now full timing in our antique Safari motorhome DP. I get a kick out of the standard arguments about diesel vs gas coaches and especially the cost to maintain the diesel coaches. Yes a service for a DP coach will cost more...it holds more oil has a more robust fuel filtering system and even has a coolant filter ..oh my! Those differences are why an engine will last for many many miles. If your buying a coach for a couple years of travel go gas but if your looking at a longer commitment diesel is the way to go. Get what you want, for me a simple as a stone pre electronic diesel with conventional suspension and hydraulic brakes was what i wanted. Simple like me!

    That looks great! I was always told the correct way to drive a detroit diesel was to first slam the door on your hand and then get in an drive!

    What have we done!

    Well I guess in short ...hit the road full time in an RV. This is the first time we have owned any type of camper and for the most part we have only taken trips by motorcycle and camped in a tent or stayed at mom & pop motels. My wife is nurse and decided to give travel nursing a try to spend some time seeing the country and helping out hospitals that are in need of caregivers. I was a self employed builder for 20 plus years so i hope to pick up some work as we travel about. We are currently renting our house and purchased a 1994 Safari Serengeti to become our mobile tiny house and after 6 months of renovations we hit the road in September for her first contract. We have both learned a great deal from forums like this and of course you tube videos on endless tips for tv'ing. ( those tips are priceless mostly for us newbies) We still enjoy our motorcycles so we tow a pick up behind the coach with our bikes on board. We just joined fmca and look forward to meeting other members as we poke along around the US! Hal and Dianne
