Here in Michigan, we rank 47th out of the 48 continental states in available sunshine, so solar is not all that practical.

Look for a related year model Dodge Van maintenance and repair manual, maybe "Chilton's". Owner's manuals are hard to find and were not usually detailed enough/generic. My 72 Dodge B300 engine required a lot fiddling with carbs, automatic choke and ignition system. Make sure you have a good coil.

My first MH was a Fireball and I have not heard of one until now. I bought a '76 in '86 and traded it in '89. Mine was 20.5'When I traded it in the dealer later told me they sold it 3 seperate times and every time they brought it back for a larger one.

My wife likes camping, and I do not, so it's bigger than our tent, and that makes it good for me. Plus, as an added bonus, I can get it to pull our Jeep.
