Our new (to us) coach

Here's a shot of our 2001 Discovery. We now have one trip (to Maine) under our belt. This shake-down resulted in: Water soaked carpet due to complete failure of grey water drain. And, complete failure of all dashboard gauges due to failure of fuel level gauge. Driving is so much fun without knowing your air pressure, oil pressure, engine temp, speed,etc.

For $600 we got the drain replaced. $400 more got a new fuel gauge.

Other than that, the lobster was great, the dog and cat got along well and my wife made an excellent co-pilot.

Carpet washed and dash oiled to prevent squeaking, all in one trip!! Now, that's what I would call multi-tasking!!

Nice rig. Is the paint new, does not look stock for an 01' I am a little hesitant about the fuel guage causing all to fail, you may have a problem with the guage computer? I had problems with the voltmeter and oil pressure and found corroded contacts on the guage computer, cleaned and alls well

I found it a little shaky too but, Freightliner did the check out and, I'm not in a position to go head to head with them. Disconnecting the fuel gauge did allow the other instruments to come back to life. Since the gauge was replaced there has been no problems. Go figure!

Story behind the paint. Coach was owned by a vice-president of Fleetwood. He got it new without full body paint. Had the current job done in 1996.
