We just bought an '04 MH on an '03 W22 chassis. OUr prior MH was on a Ford chassis. Are there any particular/unique items that we need to be aware of? Thanks for any input.

Paul n Deb Gray, welcome to the forum. You can get all the information you could want by going to the workhorse motorhome chassis forum further down the main list, see you there.

Welcome to iRV2
The Workhorse forum is a great place to get all the detailed information regarding your chassis but I don't expect you'll have any serious considerations or worries. It's a great chassis and there's no real "secrets" to keeping it together. Just enjoy the ride and the power.

I bought an RV in May on a W22 chassis and love it.
Two things that I found by reading on this forum. 1. The electric fans roar and sound like your transmission is slipping. This scared me and made me feel uneasy the first time I heard it. It even mentions it in the manual. Now I know all is fine when they come on.
2. I changed the shocks to the RV Monroe Magnum shocks. The distance from the center of my rear wheel to the back bumber is 13'5". This causes it to porpoise. Read about this on this forum and wow did it make a difference. GREAT
I think you will enjoy the ride. Just wanted to mention these two things I had to learn about.

Thanks all for your input. In reading through some of the comments/answers in the Workhorse forum, I was able to get a lot of info.

You are going to love the WorkHorse. There have been some minor problems w/ some, such as instrument cluster problems, and on some, the air intake snorkel has a tendency to suck rain water and soak the air filter to the point, that the engine will die. That however has been on a very limited number of coaches. All these issues are addressed very nicely in the WorkHorse forum here.
Enjoy your new MH. We sure do.
