Well, we finally took possession of our new MH. It is a special edition 385 Crosscountry with the 360XT and Allison 3000. We are very excited, but the repairs have already begun. I found several screws missing, a slide transition broken, and no clamp on the line coming out of the fresh water tank so it dripped all day until I tore into it. And, the generator quit and says service required, so they are coming to pick it up and repair whatever the issue is with the cummins generator. All in all, I am still a very satisfied owner and can't wait to take the family away for the weekend!

We have the same Rig... Except with the straight Cummins 340 and Allison 2500. Ours has an outside entertainment center.

Couple of issues I had... Dash air was inop... Still working on that one. Rear speakers inop... Disconnected under dash. Cup holder lights inop... Had to rewire to 12v, they had them wired wrong. Passengers side marker light on the headlight assembly was not wired. (Wire was just hanging).

Added so far:

Jensen Ipod cable
TST TPMS with flow through sensors
HDMI cables for front TV and outside TV.
(Oh yea... You can use the front tv while rig is in motion, just unplug the pink wires from the outlet the TV is plugged into... Remove the panel behind the front dvd.)

Setting up the Chevy Cruze as a toad, I wired up the Ready Brake switch to the dash light.

There's more stuff... That's all I can think of right now!

Enjoy your ride!
Keith M.

Keith, how did you get access to the HDMI outlets at the rear of the front TV? The dealer told me that the entire wood frame had to be disassembled to remove the TV. There has to be a better way.

Hi Keith,

I've done most of these things as well as added pocket door hardware with locks so you can lock the bathroom doors. I just removed the doors(there is a little tab you twist where they hang from the track), flipped them around and notched the door for the new hardware. I also replaced the bathroom sink with a matching residential style with a pivoting faucet and about a 6" rise to give more room to wash your hands.

mvpmich, it takes two people to remove the TV. There were six screws holding a board to the cabinet. The TV is mounted to this board from behind. I had my wife hold the TV up in place while I removed all the screws, then pulled the TV and mounting board down to fix the connections on the back. Definitely a pain. I am looking at a way of mounting the TV on a piano hinge with latches on the bottom. If I get it working, I will follow up with pics.

JG

JG has it right... takes two people, but the TV itself is not that heavy.

Thanks for the door tips... I have an intermitten issue with the master door from the bath getting stuck only opening 6 inches.

I forgot... I had a coolant line blow off the distribution block up under by the Muffler (center of the coach) lost all the coolant and overheated. It wasn't snapped on to the fitting from the factory.
