Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new rig. Can't help with question but you might try calling the manufacture if nothing else works.

Thanks for responding, I got all the appliance manuals and the owners manual. Helps a lot. I am going thru a small restoration "HA". I thought it would be small. replacing the soft floor areas and recarpet. Had to fix some electrical problems. I dont thik the previous owner was electricly in clined used a lot of duc tape and twistty wire connections . still cant get fridge to cool. I think the unit just sat to long and i need to drive it to shake it up a little. Soon as i get it road wothy I'll fin a windy hill road and take it for a drive.
Hope to here somthing more about the transmission as I am om one of those techy wrenchy type of person.

..........Welcome to IRV2, and I might say you made a good choice. Our previous one was just like it, only a little longer, maybe 30' or 31', can't remember. As OP mentioned, it is a Turbo 400 transmission ,tough as they come. Your m/h may or may not have dual fuel tanks like ours did. Should have Airlift air bags in the front coil springs, if they are bursted. Keep it level when trying to check fridge. It will cool down overnite. Good luck and travel safe.
