On the ME Manual there was mention of this....I Think!. I am not a fan of keeping the engine running, but we almost always camp with 30amp service so I make sure I am plugged in before deploying the stabilizers and putting out the slides. On the rare occasion I do not have shore power, I flip on the generator. I get the added bonus of getting in my once a month genny start up to help keep it in good condition.

We made a great decision between the A and C! We kept the C and moved up to a Seneca 36FK. We get the best of both worlds...

First: Service at a Freightliner dealership includes a 2-hour express lane for regular maintenance. If you take an A to them - you wait until Tuesday or Wednesdays when they take the Pushers. The Dealership treats a Freightliner M2-106 as a fleet truck and they have everything your chassis could need in stock, and they get you back out on the road right away.

Now to the rest of the coach... go and check one out - King Bed, Lots of counter space (we have a countertop coffee maker and travel with it ON the counter where it sits) Nightstand with power, Large Fridge that holds everything we need for over a week dry camping.

We just came back from a week in Colorado (104 daytime temp) and the dual AC running on generator power kept us cool inside all week. (will keep the coach at 73 if your kids don't leave the door open all the time)

We would have loved a Seneca, but it is way out of our price range.

We have purchased a 2016 Precept 31UL and will be making the trade next week. I love the layout of the 31UL. We will just have to make do with the queen size bed.

I'm just keeping my fingers crossed we aren't trading one headache for another one. Greyhawk had non-stop living room slide issues.

I am excited about the jacks and lots of other stuff the Precept has that our Greyhawk does not.
