Sorry for the late reply, I'm getting ready for a 3 week trip so I haven't spent much time on the computer.
Our 06 Southwind 32v has been great. So far there hasn't been much "have to do" stuff vs. "want to do". My coach batteries were in bad shape so I replaced them along with the converter/charger. The backup monitor went out and that got replaced as well. The existing unit was much larger than it looked and I've been very happy with the LCD replacement. Other than that everything else has been ok.
Driving this rig has been a bit of learning experience for me (coming from a 29' Class C. I don't mean this in a bad way, it's just different. In some ways it's much easier. My Southwind is built on a Workhorse chassis, and has plenty of power to get me up and over the mountains in my area (SoCal and including the Eastern Sierra).
I agree with another poster about using some blocks along your curb to increase your angle of attach approaching the driveway. I use pressure treated 4x4's. Rather than trying to come in at a sharp angle up the driveway and swinging the rear end around the corner of the house, I use the blocks to come in almost straight. I've found that small adjustments are much better than large ones. My Class C was smaller but handled much differently and it's taken awhile to change my habits.
I'm sure with some practice you'll have it nailed in no time! Good luck!
