Thanks to all for the warm welcome. The previous owner of the '99 Hurricane had already replaced the floor carpeting with laminate. I've upgraded and replaced the cockpit and dog house, cable run housings and night stand carpeting. Pictures to follow. Just completed servicing the Onan generator with new oil and filters and will be doing the Triton V-10 in the next few days. Need to replace the older vent cover with a Fantastic Vent cover then clean and seal the roof. Will be reinforcing seals at the roof caps ends with Eternabond to prevent future leaks in that area. The unit has about 143,000 kilometers (88,856 miles). The previous owner is a retired stationary engineer and maintained the mechanicals extremely well. Cosmetically there is the normal oxidation on a unit this age but the decals on the sides and back appear to be in good condition. (no chipping or cracking). The front requires a couple of new "swooshes" but the Hurricane logo is intact.
Currently researching tire valve extenders. The tires were installed new two years ago and have been protected from UV rays. Any suggestions regarding the extenders???
Thanks for any help the group can provide.
