Class A - all new to me

I have waited a long time- purchased a 2005 Fleetwood Discovery 39ft and know there is a HUGE learning curve

Hope to learn a lot using this site

You came to the right place. I've camped for years but just purchased our first Motor Home. Already learned so much valuable information on this forum.

Do a search here to learn how to check the tire date codes. It could save your life.

Good Morning - what is meant by "Date Code?"

Tire pressure - I bought 6 new tires "Michelin" - do you have tire pressure sensor to monitor tires - I have been researching this and not sure if needed and what type to buy?

Spare belts and filters - please describe more details

And learn to love your air compressor #5..- please provide details

VMSpc/Scan Gauge #6 - I'm not sure what this means?

My wife and I have never owned a motor home - prior history only a small camper - I have so much to learn - I'm sorry if my questions seem basic

Welcome and I am glad you have joined.
You have the basics of Travel Trailer use. As you have a question either ask or try to look up a thread of the same or similar question. For me the biggest difference in the two is, camper is better for camping. the MH is better for longer distance travel that you are going to camp (I am not a full timer, YET).
Enjoy and be sure you have at least a $2000 roadside assistance coverage on your coach.
