Hello from Nor Cal girl.

New to forum. Inherited a bus and am in process of fixing some of the things that have been messed with. Plumbing being the number one issue. Don't lend your stuff out. Lesson learned. Have a 48 crown that was made in to a rv in 77 by my dad and grandpa. Have traveled most the U.S. When I was s kid in it. Wanting to make it cool again.
