Pictures lifted from the Craigslist ad.

Because of Congressional mandates and budgeting, Erin (aka Prettykitty) will be essentially homeless while stationed at Ft. Bliss, Texas.  (Yes, Army regulations don't allow her to have a barracks room because she's collecting a housing allowance for her family who's living in Alaska.)

So, to avoid going broke paying for an apartment out-of-pocket or resorting to a tarp or tent for a roof, she bought a '76 Winnebago Brave.

Erin -

Your current system is missing the city water fill and check valve ... you can add those when you get around to upgrading your fresh water system.

Leeann - thanks for the link.

Erin -

These are pictures of Dodge ballast resistors and, like I said, carrying a spare is a good idea.  The first two pictures are example of two wire resistors and the third is an example of four wire resistors.

BTW, an update on my motorhome, allowed someone to borrow her and they pretty well destroyed her, so I am going to have to tear her apart and rebuild her in time.

Okay, what did they destroy?  Interior?  Exterior?  Engine/drivetrain?  Chassis?

I have personally seen the damage, and i apologise for answering the question in Erin's place as she's asleep, though she'll be able to add on to more than I've seen.

The chasis seemed to be ok, the body was a little beat up, door handle is all but ripped out and the door is being held shut through the hole fixated on the interior and exterior hand rails, kitchen window is jammed open as well as the window in the rear if I remember correctly, engine will not turn over (not even the "click" of engagment), the walls had a few stains, a couple outlets had scorch marks.

Again, I apologise for answering in Erin's place, however, she does know alot more and I'll inform her when she wakes that you've replied and at her earliest convienience should reply with more.

Make sure "someone" didn't swap battery clamps around ... I recalled a time, during an exercise, when the guys on the Army comm van couldn't get the crypto to key up so they just (on their own accord) patched around the crypto gear ... and wound up sending Secret-high exercise and real-world data in the clear.

Cross wired batteries and jumper cables would cause lots of heat, smoke, and other interesting effects.

I assume "someone's" hide, as well as other body parts, are now nailed to the side of a barn somewhere in Texas.

Pictures will help access damage.
