I have a couple questions about this coach and I hope this is the correct place to ask them. Question1. It has a residential fridge 2000 watt inverter and 4 6volts. We mostly dry camp so how long will the batteries last? How much would it help if I added 2 or 4 more?
Question2. It only has a 5k tow rating with the 300hp cummins and I usually am towing 6-8 depending on what rig I take, will this coach do it or should I just move on to a different one?
Thank you. Anthony

For an accurate time on battery life you would need to know the battery : Amp Hour ; rating . My 2cw, you should have 6 for boon docking.
Engine HP, is only 1/2 the towing equation , you need to know the trans rating too. Some manufacturers are installing a minimum rated trans , say 30,000 GCWR and exceeding that may result in early trans failure.
Again my 2cw. Look for a coach with 350+ HP and a tow rating of 10,000 lbs., Allison 3000 series or better. You won't regret the extra $ spent , easier to drive and fewer worries about issues due to possible overloading.
