Default Purchased 1997 last week

Just purchased a 1997 in Indiana, traded our 1993 Bluebird Wanderlodge. Learning curve on the Newell is a little steep right now so will have questions shortly. Anyone on the forum from Northern WI or Michigan's Upper Peninsula?

Congrats on the purchase, you will find the folks here seem to love answering questions, by far the best forum I've ever found. Don't forget about Newell themselves, the service dept will take the time to answer questions and walk you thru procedures, I've never seen a company that seems to care more about it's customers.

To this forum! Congratulations on your recent acquirement of a Newell. You have joined a very caring and thoughtful bunch around here. It looks like you have went from one great coach make to another. Sounds like you can share from the Wanderlodge prospective as well and we will gladly regard any of that knowledge too. Ask any questions you have about Newell's when you have them and we will strive at giving you quality responses.

There are a few owners from your neck of the woods and most are fairly active around here. Hopefully they will see your post and introduce themselves.
