Just bought a 99 Monaco Executive 40 M11. Lots to learn, lots to do to get ready for a winter here in the north. Thankfully maintenance was kept up.

Not a lot of schooling from previous owner. He sadly passed away last spring. Found his posts here and it looks like he helped answer a lot of questions for many of you here at irv2. His user name was and still is pipedream2 Dennis and Sue. Very nice lady, wish I could have met Dennis.

First mh. Hope it works out for us. Would love to know any quirks or problems I should look out for.

Cheers, Perry

Welcome from a fellow Exec owner. I've had very few issues on mine for the past 11 years that I've owned it. Strong runner and still looks good. You'll love it.

We have a 1998 Monaco. One little thing to check,,,

Days after we bought our Monaco used, the plastic line that feeds water to the icemaker broke the night before were were to leave on our first trip. It pumped the entire contents of a full fresh water tank onto the kitchen floor, flooding everything forward of the bedroom.

Check that line for flexibility. Or better still, just replace it.

Other than that, our Windsor has been a great RV.
