We finally got to pick up our 2001 Winnebago Brave 35C. We got to Camping World of Indianapolis about 1 hour before they closed. Got our keys and headed out to the unit. Got our tried to start and NOTHING!! Used the Aux start and it fired right up. Turn on the generator to get the kids some A/C and nothing. Called inside and they sent someone out and he ended up having to flip breakers (for lack of knowing what they are) on the generator and then about 2 minutes later we had power. He said it may take approx. 2-5 minutes for the Auto Transfer Switch to kick over.

After that everything was smooth sailing. Fun to drive. Haven't driven anything that big before and the wind can sneak up quick when being passed by a semi, but otherwise great times are gonna be had I can see. I'm sure I'll have a million and one questions. I did come from a Class C Winnebago (31'), but this I'm sure is a whole new beast!

Congrats and Happy camping.

Congrats on the new MH. We bought ours from CW in Chicago couple of months ago. Just came back from 1500 miles Canada trip. Take your time and enjoy.

Paul and Susan, glad you got her home safe and sound.

I recently had a problem with my Brave not wanting to start. Turned out the battery connectors needed cleaning. Hope yours is as easily resolved.

Congratulations and enjoy.

Why would any camper business sale a unit without going with the new owner and making sure that every thing was ok and that the owners were familiar with it.
