2001 Monaco Signature 43,
We have been RVers for over 30 years. This coach was our 3rd purchase. It has 136,109 miles with a 500HP Cummins engine and a 12-watt diesel generator with 4,712 hours. If you are class A shopping, I don’t have to list her stock features which are easily found.
I want you to know how she was cared for and the types of updates and improvements we’ve made over the 12 years and 79,109 miles we journeyed. No one ever thinks she’s a 2001. She hides her age well since she has been garage kept.
I hand wash her before every trip, sometimes twice on the trip and always before putting her away. I buff the rims annually and wax her every three years. The coach’s engine, generator and Aqua Hot have been serviced Annually.
In 2013 the first set of new steer tires was purchased. I don’t monkey with tires (change them).
At 100,000 miles I serviced the transmission, power steering and cooling fans with new filters and fluid.
In 2014 we replaced the pump for the auto jack leveling system. We also removed and replaced the 3-M plastic protective bug film on the nose of the coach.
In 2015 the dash radio and back up camera display was updated to newer technology. Then I saw the new LED lighting for the awning and had to have it. Since a turn signal got busted, I replaced all the taillights and signals so they would all match.
In 2016 some big updates - I changed out the traditional RV frig for a new Samsung house frig. We should have done this the day we bought it, WOW! We also replaced both old tube TVs with new Samsung smart LED TVs. It was also time for a front-end alignment and wheel bearing check. She got new shocks at that time.
In 2017 I found a new Cummins technician who was preventive maintenance oriented, so we installed new turbo boots, new radiator hoses, new radiator tubing and antifreeze. He hooked the engine up to the laptop for a down-the-road-reading. Results showed our Monaco was very strong and looked good. We changed rotors and pads on the drive axle and adjusted all the brakes.
In 2018 it was time for new house and coach batteries, so I replaced those and painted the battery box with POR-15, great stuff! We updated the invertor, rebuilt the AQUA HOT burner and exhaust pipe, and replaced the in-motion satellite TV system. Some things just get old.
In 2019 it was time for tires, so we put new drive and steer tires on and moved the steer tires to the tag axle, which is common practice. I replaced the temp and oil pressure sending unit so the dash gauges would read correctly.
I share all of this so you can be confident that with updates and regular services she is ROAD READY and has never been neglected. It was a dream for us to update to this class of coach. If you have a similar dream, give me a call.
