newbie from western new york area

Just purchased a 2008 lexington B+ motorhome, the 235s model. It's 24 foot long with the Ford V10 motor. Has 17000 miles and in excellent shape with 6 new tires. Been RV'ing since the 1980's and always had older units to tinker with. First being a 1975 minnie winnie and other assorted years and models. Consider myself a diy person and very rarely have other people service it except for inspections and tires.

Have experience with all types of repairs to all systems, carpentry, electrical, plumbing and mechanical. I've messed with practically every part of an RV and hope to be of help in this forum. Also hope to learn a lot from others. Cheers.....

There are a few 235 owners on the forum. I bought mine last winter. I started a thread on some of the mods I made. The first day it had pictures, then they disappeared. After that I could see the pics as attachments. Now there seems to be nothing. If you're interested in any of the mods I described I can send pictures thru e-mail. I've given up on trying to post pictures. Followed instructions to the "t" to no avail.

Anyway, good luck with your unit. Small enough to get around, big enough for two people to live in during a trip, decent gas mileage, and a nice place for me to wait while the wife shops the malls.
