New to IRV2


We purchased a Harney Coach with one slideout a couple of months ago. Apparently the previous owner did something to really pissed off his wife, she was divorcing him. The wife was selling the motor home to get back at her husband and said she did not care what she got for it. In the end she did care, but barely. Talked to the man on the phone while looking at the coach, he was begging me not to buy it, there were people calling wanting it so I figured if we didn't buy someone else would. Kind of felt bad for the guy.

Since purchasing we have driven it from St. George, UT to the State of Washington and back, just short of 2,900 miles. The only issues we had were the RPM and speedo guages would show incorrect readings at times. Once I turned off the ignition and restarted they would work fine. The engineer who designed the fuel filler should be horse whipped, finally figured out to turn the fuel nozzel upside down to get the fuel dispensed without frequent shutoffs.

I drove between 60 - 65 mph and got just over 9mpg, we did not have a toad with us. Our Denali only gets 11 mpg so we are thrilled.

5 years ago We had previously owned a Monaco coach but sold it because it lacked a slideout. Lost so much money on it, swore I would not do the MH thing again. We missed the convienence so much we had to jump back in.

There were no manuals of any kind with the purchase so I am struggling to remember from our Monaco days what switches do what.

Look forward to any advice or suggestions any of you may have.

NO BARGAIN like a divorce sale. Been there twice. WELCOME to the Forum,someone will have a correct answer for you. I think it might be a trial & error sitituation. Flip a switch and see-listen as to what operates. I've owned mine for two years now and still getb amazed when switches are activated.
Good Luck and again WELCOME...
