2007 Cross Country 354MBS

I just bought a 2007 Cross Country 354MBS with only 9k miles. It wasn't lived in so I'm not sure what it spent its life doing. Anyway, I have numerous questions that are simply based on my ignorance I'm sure. Is this the place to start asking? I am not having much luck searching the web.

Thanks in advance

I have a sticker right below the switch panel as you walk in the door. It reads:
"you must disconnect the chassis electrical system whenever the engine will not be started for a period greater than 48 hours. the chassis disconnect switch is located in the rear engine compartment door."
I have searched high and low for this disconnect switch and can't find it anywhere. There is a disconnect switch on the panel by the door, but that appears to be for the coach batteries. Does anyone have a clue where the chassis disconnect switch might be. I'm not sure why they want it disconnected, but I thought I would at least try.

I don't have the numbers with me but google "Coachmen phone number" and you should easily be able to reach them. They were able to send me some very helpful documents (not perfect but good for my 2011), and I have bought a few parts from them on a couple of occasions. Good Luck with your coach!

I tried that and they said they don't have any documents dated "before the buyout".

Well that sucks! The Coachmen wiring diagrams would be extremely nice to have.
At least you'll be able to get chassis info from Freightliner. I got a nice set of photos showing lube locations and other details of interest, ours for the asking.
Also, between Freightliner and Cummins you should be able to get all needed part numbers for air, fuel, & oil filters. At least it's something....
And, most appliances etc. are common to many motorhomes, so when needed you'll be able to get info on a/c, toilet, range, fridge....
I got some documentation with our bus and it included a list of components & appliances with Mfr and model numbers. I suppose you didn't get much of anything?

I actually have all the books and diagrams. Although the wiring diagrams are so small I can't make out a lot of detail. I was hoping someone else would comment they had the same problem and the switch was actually located "xxx". Or maybe even someone comment that disconnecting chassis batteries isn't necessary. I guess I won't be so lucky.
