Let me introduce myself

Hello friends. I just purchased a new Compass TW a week ago. Im not new to camping and rving but I am new to driving and using a motorhome. There is a learning curve of using all the features of the new ďrigĒ. I still canít get my navigation to work. As I drive, my vehicle icon never stays on a map road, it just goes across the map like a bird. It also has an icon that says no GPS. How can I correct this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome Bill and congrats on the new ride. I can't answer your Navigation question but I'm sure someone will chime in soon.

First Post

Hello Everyone,
My name is Brian. I live in Pennsylvania. We bought a 2013 Freedom elite 28z at the end of summer last year. We had an older Class A for a couple of years before we bought our freedom elite. Was way to big for what we were looking for. We are still new to motor homes. Iím hoping someone can explain the battery disconnect switch to me. I winterized our RV in November with no problems. I left our rv plugged into shore power this winter. Hope that is ok. But whenever I unplug it from shore power the disconnect never shuts off my batteries. Im not sure if I push it in the down position or up position. I always have lights. They will never shut off with the disconnect button. Hopefully Iíve explained this right. Thanks for your help. Look forward to talking in the future
