These Manuals have paper covers and over the years most of them have become worn. One way to repair and protect these documents is to cover them with CLEAR SHELF PAPER. This vinyl material is strong, water proof, and has an adhesive backing that will stick to the covers.
Cut the material larger than the book, fold back a corner of the
backing (as shown) align the cover to the book, and press down the
finished part while
sliding off the backing. This procedure will allow you to get rid
the air bubbles while you attach the cover. The alignment must
correct when you start since you cannot remove the cover after it has
attached. Trim the finished book.

Individual copies are good------I would rather have books
These Magazines are very valuable for the information they
contain. Most owners keep them in various filing systems from
stacks to binders. I propose that a good way to keep them
protected and available is to bind them into books. The
bound books have the following features:
easy to use organization
small size easy storage
light several years per book
HAND BOOK BINDING
By Johan Potgieter at e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is an excellent web page on Hand Book Binding located at http://www.citilink.com/~johan/bin02.htm
He describes an easy way to save and protect your magazines.
I prefer to read technical information with the most recent information first. I bind my magazines with the most recent issue first and the oldest one last. This way I read all of the corrections first then the actual article. By binding your magazines, you can take them with you on the road and they are in the smallest and lightest package possible.
The general technique is to stitch the volumes together with a cloth backing for strength. Using a simple wood press you make from two small boards, you glue the completed book into a strong cover for protection. I use a standard filing cabinet file folder for the cover and I put the clear vinyl shelf liner over the finished book with the titles and spine information glued to the book cover.
I often bind the books while I am on the road. There is more time to do the stitching and I get to review the material while I am doing the work. I use my light tester for the sharp punch; sort of a fitting touch for Motorhome magazines I think. Even if you do not have the cover for a while, the magazines are protected.

The Log Book for a GMC is an important and potentially valuable part of the documentation for your GMC Motor Home. Every operation on the Motor home should be written into this book. The book will provide documentation at the time of sale, repair, upgrade , that will save you dollars and time.
I use a notebook that the pages cannot be removed. I feel that
should be lost that has happened to the coach. If
something changes, I write a new page. The Log Book should contain the following:
Details of the operation
for the purpose of exchanging information and promoting discussion
manufactured by General Motors Corporation(GMC) from 1973 to 1978. Discussion about all aspects of the GMC
Motorhome and the mutual interests of their owners is encouraged. The list is administeredby Patrick Flowers email@example.com.

I want to clarify a couple misgivings. I do not make badges or signs professionally.
I am not in the business of making badges. The chapter badges are made by vendors that do it for a living.
I offered to make the GMCnet badges as a favor to Patrick and the Netters. I make them for cost only. My accesibility to the equiptment to cut these tags is more limited since I retired. I will take all request and will cut them at my first opportunity.
Please e-mail any request for badges off net and I will do them as
quickly as I can.
The cost is $1.00 for one badge. This covers the pin (that I have to buy),
the padded envelope, and the postage. Extra badges are .25 ea.

GMC Motorhomes International
If you haven't joined yet, sign up with GMC Motorhomes International, and spend the $$ for ALL their back issues. This will provide you with many hints, warnings, and good ideas, and may save you from having to reinvent the wheel many times.
Of course, call Cinnabar and order the shop manual(s) for your coach. Even if you do little work yourself, they will allow a competent mechanic to fix it right if you have problems on the road.
There were other motor homes using the GMC front wheel drive. Here are some links to those fanatics (like us) that love their motor homes.
