Talking Newbie saying Hello!

Hi everybody,

Glad to be a part of the sunline family! My fiancee and I finally decided to make the ultimate commitment and, you guessed it, upgrade from "roughing it" (her idea of tent camping includes an air mattress...I need not say more) to purchasing a TT! After weeks of road trips looking at varying styles of Sunlines, we fell in love with a '95 20 foot model and...here we are! We are really looking forward to starting new adventures with our Sunline, and making friends here on the forum as well. We are from southern NJ, so if you have any recommendations on where to head for a weekend camping trip, send them our way!

Other interests include camp cookery and collecting & restoring vintage coleman stoves and lanterns (hence the username).

Looking forward to the Sunline Club!

Mike


P.S. I have a newbie question regarding winterizing; will post in the maintenance section - If you think you can help please take a look!

That rig should be a good keeper size.. I also got a few Coleman oldies past few months at our local flea mkt.. A gas camp stove about $7 that the neighbor says needs a O-Ring.? ..1st lantern was $2 missing a brass vertical supply pipe (?). & two weeks ago was complete unit with both cloth mantles in good cond (?) $1. They both seem to be stamped 1965 on the bottom.. Did each year have a date ?? or just when a design change.

Good Buys! Last question answered first...each item should be stamped with the month and date of manufacture on the bottom (Example, 3 65 would be march '65) only in very rare cases do the items not have a date. For stoves,date may be stamped on the fuel tank (or the tabs where it attaches to the stove) as well. My best guess is that the O ring your neighbor mentioned to is actually the cap gasket on the fuel tank. If you cant get your tank to pressurize, thats it. Its probably most economical for you to pick up a replacement fuel cap (walmart, or many sites sell them for around $4), unless you are trying to restore using all original parts. Then you would need to replace the cap gasket, also available but a bit more work. The lantern you mention missing a vertical supply pipe could refer to any number of parts,the pump ass'y, the stem ass'y, or the generator...which should be replaced every few years anyway. (all available from coleman for a few bucks). It could be something more involved, but the pump assembly and the generator are the most common broken / missing items and Walmart carries these too. Hope this helps, if you need any more info feel free to message me.

Mike
