Newbie check in with recent purchase of 96 Monaco Dynasty

Hello and glad to be a part of this great forum!

Recently purchased a 1996 Monaco Dynasty 38' and need advice on where to start with maintenance. Should I do a fluid analysis on all fluids to get a baseline started or just change them all out? Coach has 68,000 miles and consignment lot purchased from could not give me solid info as to last maintenance done. Any tips appreciated.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

Congrats on the new rig! If you don't have maintenance records then I would do a complete service. Let the adventure begin!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new rig. If no records then i agree change it all and co a complete service. Check the age of the tires as well and change if over 7 years old regardless of miles or thread depth.

You are joining a good group of friends here with good information to share. Read the various threads and ask questions as they come up or add information if you can.

Good luck and enjoy the adventure!

Totally agree-- change all fluids and filters so you know both that it has been done AND will know exactly what brand and viscosity is in every system.


Did exactly that with each of the three used DP's when we bought them.
