Thanks JR. The problem I had with my AC was primarily the metal contacts in the switches. I couldn't go to Zone 2. I tried the instructions in the attachment but I was not successful so I hunted down switch replacements, and replaced just the metal contacts in all 4 switches. Now they work like new. I have a bunch of switches left - if anyone needs some PM me.
We also replaced the shrouds with the indestructible ones and when we took off the old shroud from the rear AC and we found many wasp nests in this one but none in the front unit. After replacing the contacts we realized that the aft unit was off (maybe why the wasp nests were there?), fired that unit up and it worked great. I alternate Zone1 and 2 when the coach is sitting plugged in. I set the temp at 86 and cool, to keep the coach dry.

I realized I had left my wallet in the coach last night so I went to the storage place today to get it and the coach was still sitting all aired up Before we changed out the ride height valve yesterday the front would leak down in a matter of a few hours and over the course of a week you would have to walk up hill in the coach, front to back.
So I think we licked that problem

Well, I had high hopes but I went to check on the coach yesterday and she was deflated again after a week. Looks like I need to spend some more time spraying connections.

Alarm

hi Rick

I was wondering if you figured out how the alarm works as I am not having much luck with mine

Cheers Joe

I figured I'd start a "refresh" thread here to document what I am going through to refresh the '97 coach we just purchased in Nov 2016 - the journey might help others with their old coach.

Here is a few pics of the coach (most are the original Ad pics):

Has a unique end cap - needs some railing work

JR, I know there is a security system - I see the switch to turn it on - but other than that I am not sure how it operates. I think I read somewhere that it pages you or calls you on a cell. When I figure it out, I'll update you (it's down the list though).

i had mine disconnected as its a wiring mess..and labor would be up an away.. as cause if it is not right you will go down road and then snuff out .. it would be way cheaper to get a new one of some sort..my basement door locks worked and everything else but i didnt need that system or worry albout it.

I don't think I need a security system either, at least not in the near future. The wireless control of basement locks and whatever else it controls, doesn't work. I bought new batteries for the fob but got nothing. Does your wireless work and if so, what does it control? Did you have the remote door lock/unlock keypad?

That basic rear cap was used on Dutch Stars up to 1999. I was kind of disappointed not to get it on our 2000 DSDP as I wanted the lights overheard. The ladder steps weren't recessed into the cap though but the grill and rest were close.

Don't have the same coach but do have the same motor and mechanical systems. Interested in following your "adventures". I'm sure there is much to be learned.

Did they put the jack pump behind the bumper so you have to remove the bumper to work on it, like mine - I'm getting pretty good at remove/replace of the bumper now after a handful of times - hopefully only one more time to go, when I replace the pump.
I haven't seen another coach with the steps built into the cap.
