♦4 Fall 2008 FALL 2008 Get on board the Millennium... Go Green! T here’s nothing better than hitting the highway and enjoying this great country! It’s that beautiful landscape and a respect for our customers that has inspired us at Millennium Luxury Coaches to make, “going green” even easier. Millennium has always been a pioneer in technology and design and we continue to build the lightest coach on the road today. This not only allows for improved handling, but better fuel economy. And on a Millennium, running your generator is optional rather than standard! “When diesel was .99 cents a gallon we were Service Manager, Shell Division All in all, a very nice improvement in the control circuits for the driver! Unfortunately the system is not able to be retrofitted due to an improved steering column and the need for another i/o module to be installed in the dash. We look forward to making improvements to the Smart Wheel and adding more functions that can be controlled by the driver in a more visible and accessible manner. Bill Jensen For now it allows the driver to control the cruise control, engine brake and turn the transmission retarder off and on. It still has a horn button in the center of the wheel and with the rocker switch on the dash you can select between the electric or air horns. There are also switches on the wheel that allow the driver to control the driver and passenger shades up and down. Prevost has introduced a new “Smart Wheel” steering wheel on all the motor home shells. It is fully integrated into our MUX electrical system and will receive further development in future years.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. offering alternative power sources that really extended dry camping time, now that it’s creeping up to $5.00 per gallon, we’ve got everyone’s attention,” observes Nelson Figueroa, President of Millennium Luxury coaches, “We’ve been perfecting this technology for the last 9 years!” High efficiency A/C units decrease power consumption and an additional alternator combined with the eight house batteries and four inverters decrease the need to fire up the generator. The use of LED lighting whenever possible decreases consumed energy as well as heat output. “One of the best things about the Lutron® home automation system, used in all Millennium Luxury Coaches, is that it allows us to program to very specific conditions. For example, lights dimmed to 90% are more energy efficient, but not noticeable”, says Nelson Figueroa. “We’re all about customization and choices. Our engineers can even program several flush options and other water saving features.” That’s customization at its best! appliances (they draw electricity even when they are off ), say “no” to plastic, and keep your tires inflated to the proper level. RV parks are becoming more conscious of keeping our environment clean and recycling programs are becoming common-place. If your favorite RV Park doesn’t offer recycling, mention it. Sometimes that’s all it takes! Small changes made by many can make a tremendous difference in our environment and lessen our impact on the planet. “As a company, it’s our responsibility to be eco-friendly, but we also want to give our clients that option too”, says Evelyn Figueroa, Vice President of Millennium. “More and more people are making an effort to “go greener”. We want to help make it an easy choice!” It takes research, trial and error, hard work and diligence to come up with new and improved ideas. As our friend Kermit says, “It ain’t easy being Green”, but here at Millennium we’re proud to do our part and help make a difference!
