Welcome and glad to meet you!


Welcome to the CC family as well. Our Magna is also new to us so we are just now getting it set up. We plan on moving in next Friday.

Make plans on where you want to visit, then plan on spending one to several months. This will help to minimize travel expenses. You can even look into workamping or volunteering to help pay for sites.

Remember you can't take it all with you. Believe me, my wife tried but I finally convinced her we just could not.

If you need the internet, I would suggest looking into WiFi Ranger products (I have the Mobile and Go package.)

Anyway welcome and enjoy.

We have been in our 36' intrigue for 3 yrs. While life has been good there have been some screw ups and thing will break. My wife has done a great job of photo documenting our 3 yrs on the road todate. If you're interested feel free to check out our blog at PAMPERED PENGUIN
One thing I suggest is to establish and print a check list and use it [U]EVERYTIME[U] you get ready to go down the road. It will save a lot of opps moments. Happy Trails and remember you rarely "have to" be there or go there so take your time and take it all in.

PS Join Family Motor Coach Association and go to one of their rallies. I would suggest the one in Gillet, Wy. I realized I was ignorant of what I was ignorant of and by going to the rally and attending workshops I began to fathom how ignorant I was but also learned a tremendous amount.

I'm not sure what type of info you are looking for. Are you wanting info on the coach or full timing or both? If you would like info on the coach then post the year of the coach. You will probably find someone with the same coach and they will be able to answer many of your questions about the coach.

I've benefited greatly from irv2 forums and I'm sure you will too. I purchased my 2000 Magna a little over 2 years ago and had, actually still have, lots of questions about the coach. You might consider looking at the Yahoo Country Coach owners forum as there is a lot of expertise there also.

Should you decide to go to Gillette, WY, for the FMCA rally in June, the Country Coach International Club is holding a rally the previous week in Cody, WY. The CCI club rallies give you an opportunity to talk one on one with other owners.

CC built some excellent coaches. The best way to learn is pick a topic and search for threads on that topic on IRV2, RV.net, Country Coach Owners Group on Yahoo Groups.

Read the engine manufacturer, and Country Coach Owners forums on IRV2.

There is a wealth of info on the internet and your problem most likely has been discussed at length on prior occasions. Reading about other people's problems and resolutions prepare you to deal with your new "issues" when they arise.

The manuals Country Coach provided with my old rig have been extremely helpful in trouble shooting parts replacement, Electrical issues, plumbing issues and correct equipment operation. The wiring schematics become especially valuable as the rig grows older.

After eleven years of ownership, I have found the manuals and the experiences described on these forums are the best and cheapest problem solvers.

There should be lots of manuels concerning the MH, read them and read them again. We have a 2004 Allure that we have had for 6+ years I am still constantly getting the manuels out to figure something out.

Our Magna has so many manuals that it's difficult to keep them separated. I will be reading through things again as time permits. We are moving in tomorrow so I will have more time to read while playing.

Those printed manuals come in very handy at times. Welcome to the Country Coaches owners. I also have benefited from going to rallies. I have been to both FMCA and CCI. Both worth it. Going to two in a row in WY might be a bit too much though. A beautiful part of the country though.

If you need any work done and it is possible for you to go to the area around Eugene Oregon you will have many choices for high quality and fair prices.
