DVD for 2005 Holiday Rambler Navigator

Hello, All
Just became the second owner of a 2005 Holiday Rambler Navigator, 45 PBQ.
As I was looking at the coach documentation, I came across CD/DVD jacket, but no CD. There is another CD on California's Motorhome Driver Education.

Any chance anyone may have either a 2004, 2005, or 2006 CD/DVD about the coach that can share? I don't even know if such a thing exists.

I am looking forward to getting to know many HL owners on the forum. I have some contact with Vito, who has a wealth of knowledge and has offered to assist when I need, to which I am very grateful.

I had the original DVD on my beaver. It's basically a fancy sales brochure.

Thank you, Josh,
I picked it up last Wednesday, and dropped it off at the same shop, a few short miles away, where the owner has it serviced since new. This coach has over $100K in options including the Detroit Diesel, Vorad, Walnut cabinetry, air and hyd. leveling, just to name a few. Here are some pictures that I took when I first saw it:

I thought it might be about the coach usage. The sales pitch wouldn't be much of a use. Thanks for chiming in.

Golly!! That is a gorgeous coach sir!

Always been a big fan of the Detroit Series 60, and really love the walnut too. Great options you got there. Super find, looks to be in great shape.

Many years of life left in that beautiful coach. In fact when you do look for the next upgrade, keep me in mind .

Enjoy! Lot of knowledge base here, let us know if we can help.
Josh

That is one sexy navigator!! Nice score, my 94' is in the rebuild and revive phase right now. It's a dream machine for me, can't wait to take it on the road! I have a thread going if you care to follow along.

Wow! What a beautiful coach. That is a keeper for sure.
You'd have to spend $2 million+ to purchase a 2021 coach with a Detriot 60. And you probably wouldn't get Eaton Vorad or that beautiful walnut wood work.
Let the revive and remodel begin.!

Vito,
I appreciate your comments. Moreover, your offer to assist in some updates that I will attempt would even be more appreciated. I do not have it at home yet. It's still in the garage and hope to bring it home soon.

I have read the owner's manual and see that it has the RV3012 Xantrex inverter. I found the operating procedures and the menu structure somewhat cumbersome. Not to mention that it is a "modified sine wave". I know you have a write up on this forum how to change it, which I have looked at. I wonder what other folks' experience with the RV3012 is

We have two RV3012s on board (all electric coach option), and so far we haven't had any issues. The battery charging profile specification setup options are limited, specially for newer batteries. So far it's been hard for us to justify replacing them both, just because "they are older". I know those who have upgraded to lithium batteries have no real choice, since the old Xantrex doesn't have charging profiles for them. I'll agree that the menu options on the controller are cumbersome. We have never so far run into any issues with a device not working on it, our residential fridge works flawlessly. We have brand new LED TVs and Blu-rays that also run just fine on them.

Just my 2 cents.

I was able to sell my Trace inverter with remote for $800. This helped pay for the new Magnum hybrid.
An all electric coach should have the Trace Xantrex pure sine inverter.
