We traveled from Oregon to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in our '02 HR Neptune DP. We towed our Geo Tracker 2wd backwards on a tow dolly. 2200 miles in 4 days of driving.

It was our first ever long trip since we bought it. We had two issues: Our furnace would not light. Cost us $13.31 at an RV shop for cleaning. Second was the outer seal on the differential blew and slung gear oil all over the side of the mh plus the toad. That one cost $175.00 to repair.

Got a steady 9.9 mpg from the Cummins isb 275 hp cruising at a steady 65 mph.

Very satisfied so far!

How many have a Silver Leaf engine and trans monitoring system in their rig?

I have just purchased a 2016 Holiday Rambler Admiral. I now have 1600 miles on it and really like it so far. V10 gas and it runs well

I don't think that Monaco has offered Silver Leaf in the past 10 years. Our travel buddy bought a 2003 Imperial that had Silver Leaf and I don't think he ever figured out what it does.

We had. 2002 Imperial bought new and traded it in a new 2011 HR Endeavor 43PKQ. Had it 3 1/2 years now. 4 slides, stacked w/d, and my favorite, a Frigidaire 22cf residential side by side refrigerator with ice and water in the door. Unlike gas electric, if there is a problem, it doesn't cost a fortune and freezer stays at zero and refer stays at 35 no matter what altitude or the outside temp is.

We love it!

I've seen others who have it in theirs, whether from the factory or added. Some installed the newer models directly into their dash. You can even get the software and cord so you can use your laptop or tablet to monitor your engine and transmission. It simply plugs into the engine port connector under the dash.

I use mine all the time while traveling. I watch the coolant and trans temp as well as the RPM and Torque...these two are good indication if you're dragging your toad or towing it. The best feature is the miles until empty...so you know how many miles left before you run out of fuel or reach that point where you can't run your generator anymore.

For those who have one and don't understand what it does or how to use it there are manuals online.

Just got a 97 endeavor le 38ft. I gotta say I'm liking the hell out of it. Minus a couple problems. But i guess that's to be expected.

We have a 1998 Vacationer. Have used it a few times and we are very happy with it. We have only had it for 7 mo. Planing to head out west from FL this summer. Great Coach!

Have had ours for a while now. It had a couple of minor issues as well, but once we caught up on all the maintenance (scheduled as well as non scheduled) we've had great luck with it. I think you'll find Endeavors are very popular among their owners.

Yes, it took a few days on the cabin appliances to get everything cleaned out and working but everything works! Ac blows cool not really cold. Bedroom is fine. But now it's got brake and bearing issues that we are about to work on. Then she's ready. It's only gone 1200 miles since 2009. 6 new tire prior to us getting it and we need to put new ones on the front. They aren't bad but I saw a very small weather crack and don't want to chance it.
