Great idea, only I think after I watched it being built, I'd be afraid to drive it. Want to scare yourself...pull off a couple of panels and look inside. It's a miracle anything works.

Hopefully, very well!

I had several months between purchasing and picking up my coach (2009 Monaco Diplomat 41SKQ). Monaco makes available, for download from their website, owner's manuals for their coaches.

I was able to study the owner's manual before accepting delivery. That was very helpful for me.

I've looked at the Tiffin website and don't see any way to download their owner's manual. Perhaps, if you contacted them, they'd provide an owner's manual. Doesn't seem unreasonable, to me.

BTW, having the owner's manual in a .pdf makes it very easy to search. I keep the paper copy in the coach and the .pdf on my laptop for review whenever I want.

Enjoy the new's a beauty!

Take care,

Pighunter we picked up our new Phaeton 6 years ago and it's still our new Phaeton. It's impossible to predict what you will encounter but as was stated it's an adventure and one that you will remember. Just relax and make the most of it and just remember it's warrantied by one of the best companies in the business.

Good luck and happy journeys.

If you have a video cam, take it during orientation as they explain the different systems to you. An awful lot of information is thrown your way, especially during an all day session. It was invaluable to us with the motorhome and I even did one for my small trailer that comes in handy. For instance, the brochure for the awning had different instructions than for the awning that I have. When I couldn't figure out the steps, I took out my video cam and was able to know I was doing things exactly right. I re-played it when I put it back up! Lots of luck and happiness with your new motorhome.
