I have the same year W22. Bought it new and have 80,000 miles on it now.

I don't know the maintenance history of your coach so I suggest the following based on my bad experiences concerning these items.

I suggest new plugs and wires. OEM parts

Clean the MAF and put a new air filter in. Do NOT use a K&N air filter!

Replace the tires.

Add 5 cans of Seafoam to your gas tank and go on a trip, running the generator at least an hour so the Seafoam can clean it out.

Congrats Enjoy it

First order as mentioned above- check your tire ages and anything over 5-6 yrs needs to be changed for new. Do some research here and find out why.

Thanks for the tips arch . My trouble now is that the living room slide won't work . The coach was hit in the front. I changed the black box in the front it was $500 and it has an extra post that the factory one doesn't that says" slide out " . Should I connect the hot wire from the power gear controller to this new post? Any pics would be appreciated. Thanks guys

I can't advise on the slideout problem. Only slideout problem I had was the bedroom slide broke a tooth off the drive gear.

Perhaps the people that sold you the "Black Box" would know.

Is fuel injection cleaner a good idea or just sea foam ? By the way never use fram filters I did an oil change and had zero oil pressure. Took the fram off and put a Napa gold 1060 like we use on are 605" race car motor and then we had 45 psi at idle !

I've used both and settled on Seafoam.

Many years ago I had two Fram oil filters split apart on a Toyota Corolla when I changed the oil. Went to Toyota and got a filter and all was fine thereafter.

At that time there was a problem with counterfeit oil filters from China.

From that day forth I buy all my oil filters at the dealership. I figure they have to warranty the engine so their stuff will be good.

Does anyone know if my coach has an inverter or how does it charge the house batteries?

This link is to a 2004 Bounder Owners Manual, not sure if it is specifically to your coach or not.

Hope it helps.
