Current project is ripping out the old Norcold and replacing with a residential refrigerator.
I also upgraded my old white coleman mach thermostat to a newer Coleman 8430A331 ZC.
It was basically plug and play no issues works a lot better than the older model.

I have considered changing my headlights to LED but I found several threads saying the LED headlights were not so good , can you tell me how you feel , my fogs are useless and ordered 2 45 watt units in LED .
My headlights (standard h9007) are ok on high beam but low beam seems like I am driving in a black hole

Picking up our 2016 American Revolution on January 4th. Very excited. Purchased from LaMesa in Sanford, FL. Great people to work with.

Beautiful, enjoy.
We were to be in sunny FL but got caught in the first big snow and now can't get out due to ice and snow. It was a balmy 28 today here in CO.
Stay warm and enjoy the new coach.
Congrats

New to the club...

Hello everyone, I'm new to the club so please take it easy on me. I have one question for now, how do I get my signature at the bottom my post like a lot of you have?
Here is a pic of my Eagle that to some people think is getting to old to let stay in center RV parks.

Those CG owners are idiots! Any Eagle, of any age, should be allowed in any RV park. Their beauty is timeless.

Hi, Newbie here.
I am looking at buying a 2000 American Tradition 40TDS. The engine at 315 hp seems anemic. Should I be looking at anything else? Any negative/positive experiences would be much appreciated.

When you say anemic does that mean you have driven it and it has no power or are you saying the HP number is not as high as other coaches.

I have a 1997 Dream, pull a 28 foot 10,000 pound trailer with a 325 HP Cummins and it has plenty of power.

Thank you. I have zero experience with any Diesel pusher. It just seemed to me that if these companies through the years increase the output of the engines, then there must be something to it.
Thanks for your feedback and expression of satisfaction with your engine. The companies always advertise their horsepower when it is really the torque that is relevant. Could it be that the torque ratings from a 325 hp engine and a 400 hp engine are not that different as the hp would suggest?
My wife is mortally afraid that the used rig I will buy will turn out to be a maintenance nightmare. No aspirin will cure her.
Again, thank you for your thoughts.
