Bought a HR 2003 atlantis 29.5', 6.8 liter V10. Really seems to be in pretty good shape for age. It has 9600 miles on it. Had every thing checked out. New belt,hoses new fluids, couple new house batts. and new carb put on genset. Yikes! Little piece of gold there!!! Gen only had 23 hrs on it . Not used. Pretty gummed up (carb that is) to say the least! Hope it's ready to go when I am! I haven't had it out, as of yet for a test.

Augusta model replaced Atlantis in the past few years, I think!

Let you know how the shake down goes.....

Hello Doug,
Thank you so much for your response. We have the giant notebook and I believe we have most of the manufacturers' manuals, however, we do not seem to have any sort of schematic for the way the vehicle is wired. Most of the switches on the drivers dash board need to be replaced (they are brittle and don't always stay flipped up) and we do not seem to have anything relating to the ice maker.

We would be happy just to get the schematic for the wiring. I will be glad to pay you for any trouble and expense you might incur with sharing that with us.

Are you the original owner of your Imperial?

Thank you again for your help.

Bonnie

Hi Bonnie,
No I am not the original owner. That being said, I know the previous owner well and know I have everything Holiday Rambler provided him. As far as replacing the brittle toggle switches goes, all you have to do is replace them one at a time, (disconnect battery first!) with better ones, I used ones with all metal parts so it won't happen again. For everything else on the chassis, it is nothing more than a P30/32 Chevrolet chassis built specifically for the motorhome industry, and you can go the this link and download in pdf. format the complete Chevrolet P30 Chassis manual which will tell you a lot about everything else such as suspension, brakes, etc. Hope this helps, and enjoy your Imperial as much as we are!

I really do not think the 2003 Atlantis was built on a P30 Chevy chassis. They came with the V10 which is Ford.

We have a 1986 Imperial with 47000 miles. Everything works except the steps...we are working on this...and the power steering is not currently functioning correctly. Other than that she is a jewel. We love her!

Think that my entry on this OP got intertwined. Asking about how holiday rambler owners liked their rigs. I have the 03 Atlantis with " yes" a v10 Ford.

We have a 1996 holiday rambler endeavor.LE We just got back from an 8000 mile around the country trip we went through all the outside states except north of New York. We love the fact that it's paid for two. But we keep having-electrical problems with it and the gauge keeps saying it's overheating I mechanic says it's probably just the gauge.

By the way does anyone know what the LE stands for?

Hello Droberts,Glad you had a great safe trip.We have an 88 34' Imperial,that we just bought in August,and have done a ton of work on,including the Mor/Ryde susp.pads.Brakes etc.Fortunately I'm a retired Diesel truck mechanic and do all Maintenance myself,thankfully that saves us a ton of money on labor.If your temp. gauge immediately goes to overheat when you turn your ign.to the on position,I would check your sending unit.Disconnect the wire and see if the gauge bottoms out(coldest position)then ground the wire to a bolt or bare metal surface and the gauge should top out to Max.temp. That tells you the gauge and wire are good.With the wire off and then the gauge tops out you may have the wire grounding out on the way to the gauge.Rarely does a gauge go bad but it happens.Of course this is after you know for sure your coolant level is good,belt is on which I'm sure you have already checked.I hope this helps you and if I can give you any more advice I'd be happy to help.If I don't know I'll tell you that to.Safe traveling,John

The oil pressure gauge in my rig kept dropping pressure on occasion as we traveled down the road. If I used my left foot to lift up on the wiring harness it would return to normal.

I removed the access cover on the top of the dash and peered down behind the instrument panel. What I found was one of the wires connected to the gauge had its nut that secured it to the post missing. The terminal wasn't holding firm...thus it gave a variation on pressure.

I replaced the missing nut, secured it and its good as new.

We bought a 2006 Endeavor and satisfied. We replaced the carpet with vinyl planking and tossed the window valances with the cardboard shades. Installed household wood blinds and looks great.

I bought a 1994 34 Endeavor LE on an Oshkosh frame with a 5.9 Cummins and 6-speed Allison tranny. My wife and I have cleaned it up and I repainted it myself this summer (see my post "How to Repaint an older RV"). We just love its quality, sound insulation, diesel engine, etc., etc.. Of course a 20-year old RV with 190,000 miles needs some maintenance, but it's been well within reason. We are do-it-yourself fix-er-uppers on the coach section and keep a to-do list going, but then we need a few projects, right? We are so thankful to have upgraded to this level of quality and comfort throughout.
