New to us 2004 Four Winds Chataeu Sport 24-T

I am retired Navy, retired Civilian. With being away, and kids, we did not have the time or money to purchase a motorhome. Now that the kids are older, and the tent is older, we are getting older, and the ground is getting harder. It was time to start looking for a motorhome.
We looked and test drove numerous motorhome. Did not want a Class A, or B. Our Class C Four Winds Chataeu Sport 24-T was the right fit for us, wife can drive it in a emergency. Wife approved in buying it, and fit our buget ( have to please my wife) Our motorhome was garage kept, new tires, roof is like brand new, no leaks anywhere. We have taken local trips to Washington State Parks boondocking camping, camped in tight fits with no problem. We are getting everything together for our trip this fall to Vegas, and San Fransico.

Thanks awboater.
Already asking questions. Will ask a question fix that problem move on to the next.
I saw how you replaced your lock with a combo lock. I went out to look at mine soooo rusted now I am using BP baster to try and free up the screw. So far only been able to remove one screw. Past owner did not do any cleaning or oiling of these locks or closures.
