Thanks Michel, we actually went backwards and bought a 98 Windsor to replace our 99 Rexhall. It was love at first sight for the wife lol even though the Rexhall is more roomy and surprisingly to me more storage.
Taking it in tomorrow to a friends shop for a service and thorough check over then next Friday we're going to flip a coin and either go east to Nova Scotia and west to British Columbia.

Hi Craig,
I had a Rexhall Aerbus 98 and it was a good coach, served me well for many years. But I changed for a 09 Monaco Cayman and then for a 09 Monaco Dynasty.
I think you'll love the Windsor with it's power, suspension and general reliabilty.
Less electronics than todays coach and better build in my mind.
Enjoy the forum, you'll find most of your answers in here.
Have a good day!

I did like my Rexhall too. Tomorrow will be the first big test for us as well on going on a 4000 KM round trip over the next 2 1/2 weeks so we will see how it goes. The big thing that I liked about the pusher over the V10 is how quiet it is up front while driving. The wife said we will have time to get to know each other now. lol

I need to modify the TV cabinet in the front of the coach. 2006 Monaco Cayman. TV is long gone and it is just a head knocker now. Remember seeing a modification on it but have been out of touch for several years.

I took that cabinet out of our 2001 Diplomat, made a cupboard the same size of the ones on either side. Filled the bottom of the cabinet with matching 3/4" plywood and hung a foldup TV bracket from the plywood and installed a 32" flat screen. Sorry but can't find my pictures and sold the RV a year ago. Good luck.

What latches did you put on the fuel filler panels? Any link available? And pix?
How do you adjust the fuel gauge sensor?
Can you show the windshield fan setup?
Thanks

Removed the screw holding the fuel filler bay doors closed and added latches. Now have access to storage above fueltank

What and where did you get these latches for the panel around the fuel door. Thanks.

Thanks!

Tom, the Big Boy battery combiner is most likely dirty, why your battery's are not charging! Try to flip the battery combiner switch on the dash a few times, to cycle the big boy, and it might start working, but it will need to be cleaned. RVexpert on YouTube has a very good video explaining step by step how to do this! Hope this helps you get the factory system working for you! Rail!
