New Sportsmobile owner
My name is Jim...
Like someone else here (from NM... I think), I'm a new second owner of a SMB. My wife has *really* wanted a SMB, for at least 20 years, and a customer of mine was the original owner of a 2006 6.0 4x4 passenger van, and my wife pestered him into selling it to her (us). So now i'm learning about Ford vans, and SMB's.
I own, and repair, about twenty diesel engine pieces of equipment and trucks, in my business, but this is the first 6.0 that i have been blessed with... so I have many questions to ask on the forums.
My wife and I are (not yet retired) over-the-road vacationers, when we travel. But we're not, yet, off-road travelers. So I am, so far, unsure about venturing too-far remotely, with a 12+ year old 6.0 powerstroke. (so more questions to ask...)
A year ago, I broke my successive chain-of-purchases of pickup trucks (for work), and i bought a white Chevy Express AWD passenger van, for travel and work. So, with the SMB, strange to say, my wife and I are a dual-van family.
FWIW, we live on the Sierra crest, in California, so i know a little bit about snow. But i know nothing about the SW and mid desert, NM, AZ, CO, UT, where we plan on traveling to, so... more questions...
I'll post a few questions, as i'm able to, so thank you all, in advance, and, thank you for what I've read so far, in the forums.
