Greetings Susanswt1,
We have prior threads on the LeSharo here in this forum, some of which you might like to review. Here is the general Owner's Manual for all 1990 Winnebagos, and the 1990 LeSharo Brochure.
For how long has it been sitting? Are the lead-acid batteries still good?
Welcome to the forum.
Eagle5

Good morning Susanswt1,
You might also want to do the usual things; engine oil change, engine coolant flush & replace with Universal coolant, fresh tank sterilization, replace tires if over ten years old, etc.

New folks are always the easier ones to help, so WELCOME!
We were all new at one point, so no big thing there.

One of the bigger things that may shock a new owner is the way we have to look at them as sometimes two different items. One is the truck/car part that we would find on most any of those. The second is the RV/coach part which Winnebago adds on top of the other!
So the shock can come when we need parts or service for one or the other. The RV may be a year newer than the chassis!
So you may have 1990 RV but if you needs brakes, engine parts, etc. they may need to be 1989!
So we gotta know EXACTLY which we need and they put a label somewhere near the driver's left side in most cases to help. That label is described in the owners manual and it is good to use the manual and take a good look to see some details of what you have. VIN number is auto, serial number is for the RV!
It can save all kinds of drama when you need something if you can tell FOR SURE what it's for!
There can be lots of GREEK there but getting the basics, one part at a time will help.

Thank you so much. My dinette seat seems to be stuck in the up postion. Any ideas on how I can get it down. Fought with it and have to say the seat definitely won! LOL
Also what would you recommend as far as the batteries, if its going to sit awhile should I disconnect them or get one of those chargers that are supposed to keep the batteries good? Those guys were expensive.
I do appreciate your help.
Thank you!

Hi Susanswt1,
With regard to your dinette, as I look at the brochure, it does not appear that your dinette seats would recline; rather, you lift-off the table, remove the post, place the table between the benches, and place the backrest cushions on top of the now-lowered dinette table.
I recommend back-feeding your coach motor-start battery through a cigarette lighter port with an automatic maintenance charger. I also soldered-in a Cigarette Lighter Plug to facilitate this, and then just plug-into one of your 120 VAC outlets inside the motorhome. You could also buy a second charger and just clip it onto your house battery terminals to keep it well charged. Each charger does come with the battery terminal clips.

Thanks again

Hello Eagle 5
Actually this dinette the seat on each side folds and together make the bed and table just stores beneath. Im thinking maybe the one side got bent some how as the other slides easily.
Thank you on the batteries. I actually had just purchased a charger that I believe will maintain, just need to purchase accesories.
Ive been watching many you tube videos on sealing the roof. Gel coats etc.
so much work for lil ole me to do.
Is it hard to find tires for this rig?
Seems the more I watch/ read the more confused it gets me.
Haha story of my life.
I just want to make sure everything works, and its going to get me there and back.

Susan, I don't know if you downloaded that Operator's Manual that Eagle5 linked to above. But in Section 9-1 there are instructions for making the leg fold up. Here is a screen shot of those instructions:
