I'm on here a little early, but this is the place to ask smart Charleston owners a few questions. We have been looking at everything: Tiffin, Fleetwood, Newmar, Winny etc. For our vacation we rode our motorcycle from Minnesota over to Grand Rapids, MI to see the Charleston at Terry Town. we got a very good informational sales pitch. Here is my question finally: in regard to rear mounted radiators on 2014, can you guys change belts, hoses, alternator or do routine service? I slid under the coach and thought "impossible!" I have 1.2 million miles in a class 8 semi and feel not being able to do this simple work would really bother me. Do you have a service hatch from the bedroom? I didn't clarify that while in Michigan. Our sales guy said, "most of you Charleston owners wouldn't want to; or know how to, wrench on Cummins."
Really? Do all of you just call for a tow when you toss a belt? I can hardly believe that. Your input is appreciated!
