New to us 2012 Winnebago Chalet 31CR owners

We are Shane and Gloria Tucker. We are retired public servants, 28 year LEO for me and 911 dispatcher for Gloria.

We are previous owners of a 2015 Newmar 4037, which we sold in spring of 2022. We purchased our 2012 Winnebago Chalet 31CR in December 2022.

We took our maiden voyage last month and discovered major differences driving a class c vs. our diesel pusher. After returning from our trip I replaced our shocks with Billstien's and added a Safe T Plus steering stabilizer.

I'm looking forward to learning more about our Winnie (named Feefee) from experienced owners like you.

With a bit of experience on Rv, you are likley aware of how helpful info can be, so I will point you to a few sites which I like for digging deeper on lots of things, either as a help for repair decisions or just as a place to look at what I bought without having to go outside!
Winnebago home page as a starter for finding info? Going to the owners tab is like a portal to info:

For parts info on not only where it is and what it looks like but parts numbers, sizes, and lots of detail:

Plumbing specifc :

And the always handy electrical for little details like "where is the GFCI I just tripped" :

Found a loose wire and wondering what it does? It may be labeled with a code on the wire.

Decode chart here:

If nothing else, there is a lot of reading for those cold pre-summer days when we may be stuck with just wishing!
Welcome to the group!
Why no RV year, make and floorplan on MY signature as we suggest for others?
I currently DO NOT have one!

Greetings Shane & Gloria,
The Chalet 31CR is a big Class C indeed, so those handling improvements sound like a great idea. Here is the on-line Owner's Manual for it, which can sometimes be a handy thing to have.
Welcome to the forum.
