Look into replacing halogen puck bulbs with leds ebay has them cheap and easy to do. Keeps betteries and heat a lot happier.

ENJOY
If you are not dry camping, plugging into the pedestal should keep your batteries up if your inverter is in good working order. You can also get all the heat you want from the heat pumps while setting up if the day temps will allow it.

Good advise. I like my method better. FULL TIME.

Those that may have this coach and have some pointers or information to share please speak up.
Well I am new too with a 40 ft. But the little I have driven tells me to take wide corners, andl plan every move so you don't get cornered.. And look up for tree branches. But congrats too you and yours..

Congratulations on the new acquisition. May you have many safe and enjoyable miles ahead of you.

As a second and/or third to several of the responses so far, read the manuals and talk to Monaco technical in Oregon. Let them have your coach number and glean any and all information from them when the situation necessitates it.

In addition, post your questions and/or concerns on this FORUM. There are many with the expertise to provide assistance and troubleshooting.
