That era CC had such classic lines, those along with sighting of my first Concept - is what really got me interested in the CC line.
I like the way Ron thinks, as I did the same on my 2004 coach. I did not preventatively replace the long runs of the heater hoses to the front OTA heater. But I did buy the stuff needed and have it in a marked bag, to do a quick bypass if those start to leak while on a trip. One other reason to change out any rubber diesel fuel lines, like to the generator and on our coach to the Hydro Hot, is that the ULSD fuels are not kind to them. They can get small pin holes, and have been known to start fires. Any good NAPA replacement hose will do you well with ULSD, but I did order the Gates Baricade line (been awhile, pretty sure that's he name) for these runs. And Gates Blue Stripe for all other hoses around the engine. While I was at it, ordered the Gates fan belts too, and kept the old ones as spares (per the documents that game with the coach, the belts were two years old). Don't forget the hoses/belt on the generator, if it is water cooled.
One other thing I did as new baseline ownership, was crawl around with a flashlight and handful of tools. I got to look over the chassis real well, and also found several ground connections. These I loosened up, cleaned the area as needed with emory cloth, and reattached, and then spray protected with the same red stuff I spray on the battery terminal. Found some other grounds in the engine compartment and two electrical cabinets. I was also able to clean the cables ends where they connect to the starter. This took several hours at my pace, and then I final cleaning and reconnecting of the chassis and house battery terminals/cables - which I had disconnected before my maintenance cycle.
I figured it was a good way for me to learn more about the coach, and was good preventative maintenance. And of course, the one I missed doing, was the one that later gave me problems. So how I forgot to get into the wire ground that feeds the front stairs steps and slide - yep, the slide remained closed at the end of the day of a long drive - and that is one heck of a first step when coming off the floor landing to the lower steps!!
Enjoy your coach, all of you with these vintage finely built rigs - salute!
