    She's not in bad shape.
    I am continually finding things that need looking at and sorting.
    Still, must expect that from a 28 year old van.Parts are tricky to source.
    Rear light units req replacing but have found someone who still manufactures the originals so got 2 NEW ones on the way.:BigGrin:

    Received the 2 new Rear light units from the USA PLUS 6 spare lenses.
    Over the moon with them as they are original spec parts.
    Will look good on the Rv.:BigGrin:
