Newbie questions.

I know that the saying is "no question is a wrong question" but I find it amazing that so many people spend the money for a diesel pusher motor home and have no concept that they are buying a rather complex operating machine. They seem to think it is no different than a turnkey Chevy or Ford from their local dealer.

Methinks any coach gasser or diesel pusher is a rather complicated machine. Multiple electrical systems, etc. And both are prone to issues. Albeit a diesel pusher has a few more systems to go awry - air suspension, etc.

those of us that live in rural areas like mine with only 600thou in the whole state have a very good concept of what a diesel involves...but like mentioned above the gasser is not any less complicated per sey as they have all the rv systems a pusher does..now the chassis does have more of the desirable systems of comfort..so whats wrong with those items...they just need attention as the gasser does no springs that do break or systems that need to added for stability like steering shock ect ect...jeff
