Bought a new to us 2015 Monaco diplomat. Picked it up from Le Mesa RV in Sanford FL. on Tuesday afternoon and headed home the next day. So far here is what I think of it. (If you don’t care,stop here and move along)!

The handling compared to our 08 Itasca is night and day! No wiggle, no moving in the wind side to side. It’s flat in the corners with no body roll at all!

Love the 600hp. Came through the smokies today and it shifted out of 6th once and still didn’t lose any speed. Awesome!

Still trying to figure out switches etc. That’s going to take a while!

Like some of the features, but some seem odd. The old one had a bank of switches inside the entry door for leveling, and door locks and awning controls. On this coach they are spread all over. Like I said trying to get used to it after 10 years with the old one.

Few problems, some outlets don’t work. I have a dead gfci plug which is the cause I’m guessing. Also the bedroom A/C blows hot air. I’ll look into those when we get home.

Any Monaco people please pm me if you know about some of the systems. I have a couple of questions that I don’t need to trouble everyone with.

Have a good day everyone!

He said “ Bought a new to us 2015 Monaco diplomat.“


My advice is worth exactly what you paid for it.

When I got my coach home I had a dead GFCI outlet so I removed it and checked voltage feeding it someone had changed it out and reversed the incoming side to the wrong side. I swapped it so it was fed properly and it worked fine and all the downstream plugs worked. The plugs are clearly marked source and load they must be wired correctly.

Just remember you Diplomat or Dynasty, you list both in your post is actually a REV product so you would do much better asking for Fleetwood or American coach people to help.

But his signature said Dynasty!


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Yes, he needs to use the "edit feature" on the original post, then ask the moderator to delete all the other posts trying to figure out what coach he really has.
