Wayne & Lana
Happy to hear that you are making progress with the Vogue. mechanic I have looked at many of them on the internet for several years. A former customer of mine (when I was working) owned two of them at the same time and got to see both of those in person. Beautiful!!! I also took a look at a 28' gasoline powered model that was for sale locally but it needed major engine work.
I wish you much luck and speedy progress with your project. Thumbs Up cheers

The pros.
Tongue and Groove drawers.that work without falling.
ice maker works.
Solid fiberglass roof.

The cons after a rain storm.
Sky light leaks. D'oh
Windshield seals are bad (no leak)
Water running down side where awning is attached.
Awning wrong size (to long, the width of awning cover.) So water collected and pulled locking arms apart. A pro is we had just ordered a new awning for the aluma lite. Same size and brand as the Madonna.
Hot Water heater has issues.

So a question Since we are owners of an SOB. Should we post in the tech section with questions on universal stuff? Or she we stay in the MAHEM.
