Technical Resources for Newbies

We recently purchased our first RV (Monaco Vesta) and we're loving it and the people we have met in the short time we have had it. Fortunately no major mishaps, but plenty of funny moments as we learn how things function. Every trip we learn something new. Our pain, however, lies in our inability to solve what are likely minor mechanical problems. The manuals are full of great information, but of course I can never find a reference to the issue I am having at the time.

Clearly this forum is a great resources and is filled with many experienced RV'ers with lots of knowledge who are willing to help those of us that are just getting started, or are not all that mechanically inclined - thank you for that.

Are there any other resources that have proved to be helpful when diagnosing mechanical problems?

We have five or six issues with our coach that need to be addressed/researched.

Thanks in advance for your guidance.

Some of the RV handbooks have basic system information: RV Handbook

We've come across so many issues with our new to us 2006 Country Coach it's not even funny. We are constantly on the phone with Bob Vinson, a good friend of our who I call our "Coach Whisperer." He's always willing to coach us through minor repairs on our own over the phone, or since he has a mobile service, he's come the 8 hour drive to our house to save us with serious issues. You can reach him at bob@rcvcustomcoach.com or call him at 541-870-6233. His website is RCV Custom Coach Service - Quality Solutions Brought to You . . . he's got a parts store there that might be helpful to you too.

I would suggest you post your questions/problems in the Monaco Owners forum. There are other Vesta owners on IRV2 and that would be the best place to begin your search, especially if your problems are specific to the Vestas Roadmaster chassis and the Maxx Force engines.

Hi folks! Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you with us! Here at IRV2 you'll find lots of friendly folks who are eager to share their knowledge and experience with you. They have been a tremendous help to us since we got the Monaco a few months ago. Just post your questions over in the appropriate areas of the forum for better results. Most of them can probably go in the Monaco Owners forum. Good luck & God bless!

The component manufacturer's website can sometimes be quite helpful.
