Welcome to the forum.

Was this a used unit? If not tell the dealer to provide the second set of keys and the manual bag.

Me too cept I have manuals 2020 Thore Traveler

Greetings,
I too recently purchased a 2020 Freedom Traveler A27. Your Coach is pretty much identical to mine except the A30 is 2'8" longer has 2 AC's versus 1 and a 5,000 Gen set versus 4,000. That said I have all the manuals etc though trying to find answers in them is time consuming. Your at the best forum to find the information you need. Just ask....
#1 tip - Be sure to run all slides in or out all the way without stopping and continue to hold button in for 2 seconds to sink motors. Over head bunk as well and even though its a chore be sure to put safety pins in overhead bunk. (this will keep you from any slide problems).
Lastly if your ever leaving the camp sight and you shift to drive and every alarm in Texas goes off!!!!!! You forgot to raise the Leveling Jacks

Rick

We’ve had a 2019 A27 since June 2019. Just curious, what kind of stuff have you run into? Modifications?

I finally found the manuals online and down loaded them.

Handling sucks so I replaced the front and rear sway bars. I also upgraded the steering stabilizer. Helped but the handling could be better.

Added two new side marker cameras that we wireless.

If you disconnect the battery you have to reset the Jack stabilizer which is a chore to find.

YouTube has been the best source of information to date.

I plan to replace the low and high beam headlights in the next few weeks.

I did alignment. Balanced front tires. Added steering stabilizer. Did CHF. I can cruise with one hand now. Added sound insulation under the dog house. New front speakers. Slide outs in the pantry. New mattress. 2nd AC on roof. Replaced loveseat with dual recliners.

Iíve disconnected the house batteries a couple of times to add water but never had to reset anything.

Donít drive it much after dark.
