Hello from Ocean Shores, WA 2005 Itasca Sunrise

found this site when looking for an issue with our "New to us" motorhome. My wife and I just upgraded from our worn out 2002 Itasca Sunrise with 128### miles to a 2005 Itasca Sunrise with 25### miles. First thing I notice is that even though I'm a Ford fan, the 05 is the workhorse with 8.1L GM motor and has more power than the Ford V10. Looking forward to browsing and sharing.

Greetings Wayne & Roxy,
It is good that you have the GM workhorse, as 2005 was the last year Ford was selling the V-10 with the defective spark plug design, where the spark plugs could blow-out of the cylinder head. In looking at your brochure, you have one of the last Class A units made with a Driver's door; an option that should never have been removed. Sounds like a genuine "barn find."
Congratulations, and welcome to the forum.

Not sure about getting in and out anymore at 64, its a couple of pretty big steps, but I love having the power window. Nail on the head with the plugs. We had one blow at 92### miles. shop in Livingston Mt "fixed" it for us and 88 miles later what started as a possible new head turned into a new long block. Their fix came loose and scored the cylinder beyond repair.
So far love the new rolling home.

Hi again Wayne,
That's TWO Large Steps for Man,
OR
One Giant Leap for Mankind

I would recommend that you go for the two steps, OK? (ha-ha)
Just for fun, search this web site for "locked out." It is always good to have a backup key, a backup way to get into your motorhome, etc. You have a great rig there; enjoy it!
Thanks, Eagle5
