Recently purchased a Damon avanti, and quickly traded that in for a 2015 Excursion 35B. The avanti was just not....good. The excursion is doing very well, we love it.

A few questions,

1. When I store in the driveway hooked to a 20amp house plug, do I use the battery disconnect switch or leave them on and just turn off everything. It will be sitting for a about 4 weeks while working. I plan on using the chassis disconnect.

2. For current excursion owners, any things I should know?

3. I set the auto gen start at 12.1 and turn off at 12.9. Does that sound right? I have 4 agm batteries.

4. Has any one figured out how to install a vent cover on the kitchen vent, given the AC is so close?

I leave mine plugged in and both disconnects off. One of these makes keeping battery water levels a jiff
Can't help on #2
Yes, sounds about right
Do you mean a "Max Air" vent cover?

Welcome to RVing and irv2.com. I will leave 1,2, & 3 to someone else but I just installed Maxi vents on my 2015 Bounder and the vent over the kitchen was next to the A/C. I removed the A/C cowling, used an offset drill and steel screws to afix the brackets to vent frame.
