Hi all

We’ve moved up to a class a after exhaustive searching reading and have purchased one which has been well maintained with a few fully disclosed regular maintenance things which I would like your assistance in Fixing

1. Rear bedroom furnace works intermittent
2.gas shocks in luggage compartments, need replacing anyone know where I can get a set and the size please.
3.the slide out seals look in good shape no tears or breaks and are still flexible, how hard are they to replace.
4 which dicor sealant for the roof around skylights etc.
5. Anyone have the full digital manual for me to read

I’m sure there will be more whilst I get around this rig to get it to tip top, thanks all.

2 . . . Gas shocks can be purchased on Amazon. The part number tells the pound capacity and you'll just have to measure the length.
3 . . . Slide seal replacement depends on how much space you have and how they are fastened
4 . . . Dicor self leveling is what i use.

I’d start with DiCor on the roof but in some places EternaBond is better.

I've found that most appliance ills can be fixed with a good cleaning. Take it apart and clean everything first, most of the time it's fixed.

search the #'s on the strut, I've found replacements for as low as $12.00 a pair that way.

If the seals are still soft and un cracked, use a rubber dressing on them. If they need replacing, you can get most any rubber profile from Steel Rubber products. True rubber cement is the best way to attach them.

Find out what sealant the factory used first, some don't play well with Dicor. That being said, self leveling on the roof. There are MANY different sealants that will work on the vertical surfaces. Just make sure it's compatible with the sealant that's on it, or completely remove, clean, and then recalk.

I do not know of any digital downloads for that coach, you might be able to find one on the chassis.

Hope this helps. Remember that you need be diligent about maint. or you'll pay down the line.
