2007 CC 340 New to us

Hello everyone,
On Tuesday of next week, the DW and I will take possession of a 2007 CC 430, with low mileage. I have been lurking the background and reading the post in this section. When we have our walkthrough on the this beautiful coach, especially the engine and associated levers, valves, buttons, switches and levels, what/where should I really take careful attention to. I presently have a 36 gas engine coach, but this will be my Diesel coach. For those first timers, as me, that got that first diesel coach, what type of learning curve is there. Thanks for your help and guidance in this matter.

Be sure to get the CC manuals for the Coach and Chassis.

I have found virtually everything is explained or diagrammed in the manuals. The electric and plumbing diagrams and schematics have proved invaluable.

Also valuable was our Cummins engine manual.

Accessory and appliance manuals can be found on the internet so are of less concern.

Focus on how to move the coach safely and get the leveling and slides set up when camped. You can learn the rest at your leisure. Air pressure for the travel height and air brakes, and preheating the diesel engine/generator before starting are probably the two most basic differences.

You might do a search and read the Air Brake Pre-Trip Test just to understand the function of the air pressure and the brake test. Pre-Trip Inspection | Brake Check | Commercial Driver's License

You are in for a treat with that new rig.

Enjoy
