Question Information on A39?

My wife and I have been looking for the past year to purchase a motorhome. We found a 2006 'all electric' A39. We love the motorhome but this 'all electric' has me a bit confused. There is an Aqua Star hydronic system that the salesman says is either diesel or elctric. The A39 has a factory 12 kw gen set.
Also the stove top is electric and I am used to LPG. My wife said that she would prefer electric as she does not like the smell of propane.
If there is anyone that can tell me the plus and minus of the A39, that would be great.
This motorhome has the 3 slides.

Thanks a bunch!

Only a handful built. Very few dealers know about them and how to repair them. Residential refrigerator and dishwasher. Many batteries and a huge inverter.

I have a A-37, 2006 that I bought new in May 2006 and have been using it for the past two plus years. I have put over 30,000 miles on it in that time. My wife and I love the coach and the all electric feature was one of the selling points. I don't like propane tanks in a highway vehicle. The difference between the A-37 and the A-39 is simply two feet added, mostly in the bedroom clothes storage area. The coach comes with a 12 KW generator, 3100 W inverter, and 4, 4D lifeline AGM batteries. Total amp hours of the battery pack is 800. The batteries and inverter will handle the normal house loads. However in order to operate the A/C, cooktop, and microwave you must be connected to shore power or have the generator running. The aqua-hot system normally runs on diesel or shore power. The diesel is much faster and will keep up with hot water demands like showers. The shore power is slower but will work. The system handles both hot water and heating. The coach comes with a 400 HP Cummins that does well on the hills. It also has a real engine brake not an exhaust brake It is more powerful than the exhaust brake. If you need more information let me know. Dean
