Hello from Georgia

Greetings to all.

Just recently purchased an 1987 Satellite, T2261 <Option B front>. First time owning a TT and loving it so far.






Already took a 5 day outing with it, went wonderful. First thing done when we got it home was check and repack the bearings and give the brakes an adjustment. The previous owner had the wrong size seals and it allowed the grease to run into the drum on the spindle. Thought I was going to have to replace the shoes, but a good cleaning and they held really good. Cleaned the drums really well and checked the magnets. Also took the rims, cleaned them up and painted them and got a new set of tires for them. Then since the frame was really looking bad, sprayed some flat black on it and the bumper to 'pretty' it up.

On the rear bumper, where the hose sits, the caps had long been a memory, so I just used the holes already there and dropped in one stainless steel bolt with wing-nut on either side to secure the hose.

Now getting ready to start looking at other things than may need to get done.

The previous owner replaced the floor with some laminate, but there is one small area <in front of the bathroom> that has more spring than any other, so will be checking into that.

The awning brackets are broken, and it looks as if the previous owner decided that "super huge" <yes, that is a technical term> lag screws would be ideal to secure the awning. Right now, I plan to remove the awning <it has a tear about 1/3 down> and fix up the anchor points.

Will also be doing some small interior work as the wife wants to update the decor a little bit. Although I told her that since we are pulling with an '85 Ford Van, the decor between the two matches.

Been checking out the site for a while, just figured I might as well make introductions. Thanks for all the information and insight that I have already garnered from the site.

Happy Trails and hope you all have a great week.

Welcome Joesph and family,

Brought it home, and the 1st thing you did was repack the bearings and checked the brakes. Outstanding for you!!!!!

Since you are capable and are into the brakes... anything in the camper is fixable. We have some really good reconstruction artists on the forum and all glad to share stories.

I also see you come bearing gifts.... You posted pics on your 1st post. We really like pics!

Enjoy your new coach and we look forward to "seeing" (hint hint, think pics) and hearing about your Sunline adventures.

Happy camping

John

So by using the plastic carrier, that will help prolong the life of the hose versus sliding it in and out the bumper? Basically, the same 'securing system', in regards to the bolts, except mine are vertical.

Got plenty of pictures to throw up, will try to get some up this week.

And thank you for the welcome.

The problem with using the trailer bumper to store your hose is the inside of the bumper rusts. That rust acts like SANDPAPER on your sewer hose, and you end up with a "soaker hose". Some people take a cheap sting mop and paint the inside of the bumper, but I am really not sure how well or long that holds up. If you don't want the white fence post to be so noticeable, just paint it to match your rig.

Welcome! Thanks for sharing pics - personally I was excited to see someone else towing with a Ford Van - since that is what we tow with, Though I think yours matches your trailer a bit better then ours.

I absolutely love your pictures. A classic Econoline with a Sunline in tow, it doesn't get much better than that! 5.8 or 7.5L? It looks in just spectacular shape!

Welcome to SOC!
