I seem to recall a switch in ours someplace that changes alarm operation to arm just the outside.

There is a motion sensor inside so alarm on while in use would be an issue.

That switch may disable interior parts of the alarm.

I just bought a 1989 CC Concept. I have only had it a couple weeks. I bought in in Palm Springs and drove it 3200km to my home in Alberta. The coach works and looks great. I am very happy with it and hope I bought a great coach. I have every manual going for this coach so if anyone needs info I may have it.

I do not know what the Concept used.
Cruise control issue is resolved. Turns out we have an electronic cruise control managed by a DECC attached to our Detroit Diesel engine. We finally found a service center that had the sense (3 previous tech shops did not) to contact Gillig and obtain the wiring diagram that included the cruise control. With that in hand, the tech was able to see the correct wiring #s from the dash switches to the DECC and it's now working. We highly recommend Colton Truck Terminal Garage in Redlands, CA. They know what they are doing with our older coach and are willing to go the extra mile to troubleshoot/resolve issues. Thank you to everyone who offered suggestions.

I can also say that Colton Truck Terminal Garage are great to deal with. On my way back to Alberta just after buying my 89 CCC I stopped at Coltons to see if they could check my alt to see if I was charging and to look at the cooling system because my gauge was reading high in the cab . I had no appointment and just drooped in . They asked me to park out back and they would come take a look. A few min later one of the guys came out and checked both systems for me. There was a heat wave on and I was on the 15 to Vegas during mid day ( yes not to smart ) the coach shut off because it was getting hot. It was in drive when it shut down and of course once it cooled I couldn't restart it because it was in drive. You need 100 lbs of air to shift it and I was below that. There I was stuck in drive on ther side of the 15 in 120 degree heat. I called Colton and they were able to direct me under the coach and shift it in neutral by hand. Then I could restart and be on my way. They also lety me know if I was going drive in those high temps I needed to make sure I was turning the coach at high RPM in order to keep it cool . They are great guys and saved me a lot of time and money. I was just about to call for a tow and that would have been the start of a nightmare. I highly recommend this shop

I love hearing all these great reports about Colton Truck, it makes me feel good that I have one of the highly regarded Country Coach service centers only a couple miles from home. I have an appointment for next week for them to do a complete chassis and drivetrain inspection on my 98 Intrigue. I'm looking forward to a positive experience with them thanks to all the great feedback here.

Dusty. I'm about to ask my mechanic to to a full mechanical inspection and would appreciate any kind of a check list you or Colton will be using. Would be very helpful to be sure we don't miss anything on our elderly coaches
Thanks. Perhaps you could post for all to benefit.
Mike. 96 Intrigue. 150,000 miles owned 17 yrs. great coach.

I find that greasing and changing fluids and filters on my rig gives me a lot of exposure to the chassis and drive train components.

But, there are things I cannot do or do not understand.

So I had OMC do the following last summer:

Service the Air Dryer and inspect components.
Grease the front wheel bearings and inspect.
Change the rear differential fluid.
Do a chassis inspection.

They did find some bushings that needed attention at 97,000 miles.
The front brakes were nearly virgin.
One front wheel bearing was nearly toast.

The total cost was about $1,300 for a full day's work and materials.

This was the first time the front wheel bearings had been serviced since birth.
