Checking in: A Four Winds 5000

Hello all,

Just purchased a 2001 Four Winds 5000.

And yes, believe it or not, I found the original pouch with all the manuals in it! (Yet nothing yet about where the water heater bypass is located, supposedly it was standard equipment according to the original sales brochure).

Either way, did not find out that the previous owners were disgusting, did not even clean it.

So our project right now is cleaning the inside, starting from killing all bugs (fogger?), vacuuming, vinegar, steam cleaning, the 'works' so to speak.

We will not use it until it is spotless.

Still have to go shopping for the basic equipment to hook it up to a full service campsite (sewer hose/water hoses etc.).

That's it for right now.

I had to clean up my MH also, the previous owner did clean it......... but like you, I have to start with it thoroughly spotless. Then it will all be "my dirt" from that point on. Welcome to the forum, hope you make many new memories with your new rig!
