Seeking Experienced Consult on M1078 in Seattle Area


Deception Pass , WA
Hi, all.

I finally received delivery of my M1079/8 a few days ago., and I'm getting familiar with the systems. I noticed that there are quite a few active and experienced members located in Washington State. I'm located on Whidbey Island near NAS Whidbey. I'm hoping that one of the local gurus might be available to come over and give my rig a close inspection/test drive and advise me on what maintenance and repairs I should prioritize to get this rig reasonably dependable. I'll of course be glad to compensate for the time and wisdom.

I am in Eatonville, too far away for me to make it to you with my schedule.
I have had most parts of mine apart and become quite familiar with a 1078A0, if you would like some OJT? Or I can just show and tell you about the issues I have found and corrected.
Now installing the factory winch.
I have been a truck mechanic for more years than I care to tell you about.
I think Ronmar is in your neighborhood?
