Another new owner

Hello to all. My wife and I just bought a 2005 Greyhawk 31SS motor home. We rented a motor home 6 years ago and took the kids on a three week 5,000 mile see the country and family trip, and really enjoyed it. Now the kids are gone, retirement in two years, and the back not liking the tent camping much anymore, we wanted some comfort. I had to winterize it soon as I got it home as the temp's have been in the low 20's most nights.

By the way, what is up with the manual? I thought reading federal regulations were bad......

Fellow Greyhawk owner

Hi I'm also a newbie and new Greyhawk owner. Only had the unit about a year. Wife and I love it. The only two issues I have had were electrical. First one was caused by a power surge from lightning. No damage, but the circuits blew. Problem was I couldn't figure out where the elect box was. Manuals were no help. Finally went on the web and found a fellow Greyhawk owners website. Seems he had same issue. The box is under the master bed in the back. Got a chuckle about that one. My second elect issue was with the batteries for the box. Had a service check done by the dealer. Told me that the "chassis" battery was bad, and I had to go to Ford to get it replaced. Went to Ford and they said the "chassis" battery was bad and that it had to be replaced by Jayco. Must be different interpretations of what a "chassis" battery was because the Ford dealer was right. The bad battery was a Jayco installed battery, not a Motorcraft battery. Anyway, newbie learning curve.
