I received in the mail from Monaco a campaign notice to replace the shifter or install a harness to enable the secondary shift schedule. Has any other Vesta owners received this notice? It says the transmission may not shift manually as expected and the economy mode may not be enabled.

We got the notice yesterday, so we will just add it to the list of concerns when we take the MH to the dealer on tues. I'm hoping that this change helps because the tranny doesn't always hold the gear selected.

I heard from Monaco today with their decision to split the $400 cost with me. I'm very satisfied with this decision as I initiated the process without prior approval from them. I remain hopeful that they assist other Vesta owners with this issue and correct it going forward. I just completed a trip to San Diego and the fresh air was wonderful... No AC necessary !!

Glad you were able to get some remuneration VestaDave. I believe Navistar Monaco is doing the BEST they can to make their customers happy with their purchase.

I have a quick question for the Vesta owners. What air pressure do you find your Vesta rides and handles the best. I know ideally you do a 4 way weigh to determine, but generally what air pressure are you running on fronts and rears. When i picked mine up it had about 70 in front and 80 in rear. That seemed soft for even an empty vehicle. Thanks for your reply.

We normally keep the pressure @100psi. I just had the Vesta serviced, another Monaco recall!!, and had the pressure increased to 110. Since it will be sitting idle for a while it will be down to 100 in a few months.

That seems a little low. Our runs between 110 to 120. It feels good out on the road at this pressure.

RGN, can you tell me where the inverter circuit break is? I have thrown it i think but can't find a circuit breaker thrown. Thanks

You might check for a thrown GFI switch, usually in the bathroom. In a Diplomat, that controls all of the 110V in the kitchen and bathroom and various wall plugs.

The inverter circuit breaker is in the first outside compartment on the driver side. There is a little tab which sticks out from the inverter. When ours tripped the microwave, tv's and stereo system shut down. Unit was replaced with a 20 amp, no problem now.
