New to this forum and a few questions

Hello to all! This forum is a great resource. I have been lurking for a few days and finally decided to take the plunge. I only hope I don't sound to stupid.

We have owned a 1996 Holiday Rambler Navigator for 5 years. We have just started using it for long trips this summer. It sat in my shop for the most part of 5 years. We recently took a trip from our home base in Colorado to Portland Oregon for my sons wedding. We had a great time and we are looking forward to many more trips. We have downsized our land based home to 1200 square feet from 6000 square so we can travel a bit more. We also have a disabled son that is 30 years old and he will be traveling with us. Ok now for the questions.

Where can I find out more about this MH? Questions like
1) Where is the hydraulic reservoir for the HWH computerized levelers?
2) Where are the starter solenoids?
3) How does the OTR A/C work? (Basement air Thermostat setting)

It is built on a Spartan Chassis

Oh by the way the only mishap on the Portland trip was that the 20ft awning blew off on I-5. It was a clean blow with NO damage to the MH or other vehicles. We were very fortunate.

I know I will have a lot of questions as we travel more.

Thank you in advance for your patience and help!

Welcome to the forum. Glad you had a good trip(less the awning). This site is a great source for info and you will be glad you joined.

For using the basement air on the road, the generator will need to be running and producing current. Then the thermostat needs to be switched on. This is a basic answer to what can be a complex system if something along the line is not working properly. A good source of instruction is always a friendly local rv dealer. Approach the service manager and ask to buy an hour with a tech. Then go through the systems with your questions.

Hope you have many safe travels.

I have the 400 cummins M11

Thank you very much for your response. Thats a good idea I didn't think they would do that. Are they motor and coach experts or mainly coach.

Regards
Steve

Howdy and welcome aboard. Hope you enjoy the site. Post some questions over in the Class A forum, MH-General Discussion & Problems, possibly the Monaco forum as they were a cousin of the Holiday Rambler and Spartan forums. I'm sure you'll get the info you're looking for. Good luck and ave a great rving season.

Most rv dealers will have RVIA certified techs. They will be knowledgeable in both coach and chassis systems. Every time I have asked to buy time(advice and instruction) it has been met favorably. I'm sure the look at it as easy money.
