Ok well here goes....
1. My converter/inverter seems to boil the water out of mybatteries fairly quick.....have any of you experienced this?

2. Can't figure out where the moisture drains off my A/C units I dont see any water running off the roof anywhere.....??

3. I have a cable connection in my hook up bay with water and sewer but can't find a cable connection by the tv....just a powered connector for the air antenna.....in the right cupboard beside the TV.

4. I have a small water leak in my lines in the wall behind the toilet when on city water, but not if I run on pump pressure....gonna have to fix this somehow...any experience with this?

5 how difficult is it to check my brake linings?

6. My slides leaked during a heavy wind blown rain, they hadnt leaked before but the tops of my slides had water sitting on them....any experience with this?

Thats it for now but I have more.
We really like the coach and its a pleasure to drive except in BC where it is nothing but mountains and steep descents which can be a little scary. However the coach handled them well just wish I had a jake brake and not just an exhaust brake. I was on the brakes more than I wanted.

Cheers....Jim

2. Can't figure out where the moisture drains off my A/C units I dont see any water running off the roof anywhere.....?? Mine drains through a tube in the utility compartment, you might check there. You can run a/c and just look on the ground to see if it is getting wet under utility compartment.

3. I have a cable connection in my hook up bay with water and sewer but can't find a cable connection by the tv....just a powered connector for the air antenna.....in the right cupboard beside the TV. Mine was already connected behind the TV. You must use the menu button on the remote and change from antennae to cable on the TV itself. I have seen others unplug the cable to the TV if they have upgraded TV and or satellite.

4. I have a small water leak in my lines in the wall behind the toilet when on city water, but not if I run on pump pressure....gonna have to fix this somehow...any experience with this?

5 how difficult is it to check my brake linings?

6. My slides leaked during a heavy wind blown rain, they hadnt leaked before but the tops of my slides had water sitting on them....any experience with this? Check your seals, I have seen the seals move out of proper placement from other posts.

Thats it for now but I have more.

The exhaust brake may work better if you downshift the transmission manually prior to starting your descent.

Cheers....Jim
Good luck with your new coach!
