Cannot help on the wiring, cc is not much help either.

A voltmeter, pencil, paper and a lot of time

The wires area numbered, and you may get cc help on one, but it may cost you, have your coach number handy.

The shifter us air powered, need to have air before it shifts, if not in n it will not start, a work around us there

You may have the gillig MHA chassis, gillig us on line, call them with your VIN and you can order the chassis that shows how the shifter and all of the rest of the chassis stuff works as well as the care and feeding.

For the coach wiring, there simply seems to have a lot more than you would imagine, worry about broken stuff, take notes as you go

Thank you for your reply. Coach is in the shop, and the manuals are with it. The mechanic has been very helpful. Maintenance and repairs are in process. Hopefully we will be on the road soon!

We just bought a '94 CC Affinity on a Gillig chassis. Only had it for about 6 months, but we are enjoying it! Among the used RV's we were looking at in our price range, this coach was by far the best quality we have ever seen.

Enjoy your great coach, and read all the manuals.

Ours cover just about everything except the few proprietary PCB in the overhead dash.

10 years later, I think I have them memorized but still refer to them.

Thanks for advise. It's in great shape but the outside clear coat is flaking a little. Any advise?

What is the subsurface to the Clear Coat that is peeling?

On my older rig, the portion that was peeling was Clear Coat over Gel Coat and was subjected to years of direct sunshine in the storage lot.

The Clear Coat over Base Paint (color) has yet to peel in a large way.

I have stripped sheets of Clear Coat overlaying Gel Coat that were 20" x20" using a razor blade and holder. Then I cleaned, resprayed Clear Coat, and then had to sand and buff the end result. I have done about 50% of the white color on my rig in my driveway with a 2 part rattle can of Clear Coat.

You can also spray clear coat on small problem areas to try to stop the peeling, but I found that counterproductive on the Gel Coat based areas. It works a little better over the color paint areas.

The largest area you can repair is advisable to avoid the inevitable ridges between Clear Coats.

If you have to repair clear over large base coat areas, I would have that done professionally as new base coat should be applied first. Having said that, I have done the green bands around my windshield with base coat and clear coat, but of course the base coat is not an exact match.

Leveling

One thing I've noticed. If you have the front wheels turned too much when you do the air leveling, the tires will hit and do some damage. Get out the Bondo!
