Kraig, welcome to the sometime challenging world of Apex ownership. You are lucky in that hopefully most of problems have already come up and mostly resolved. Because the Apex was such a new unique coach, in February 2006 we set up an Apex Owners Group to address the issues peculiar to the Apex. The rest of you have enough problems to worry about without reading about our Apex peculiar problems on this forum. The site is not very active (Problems solved? Probably not,) but has tons of history from the very beginning of the model.

The most recent fix for the &^$@*%$!*& Smart-Bed touch pads is removing them and installing small marine rocker switches. After about 6 replacments, thank God that's over.
Send me your e-mail address via PM. I have lots of other info, pictures, a list of other Apex owners, etc.
