  Power to electric Aquahot switch
Posted by: 360 - 9 hours ago - Forum: Electrical - No Replies

Electric Aquahot did not want to come on today on 458.  Got as far as the fact that I don’t have power to my switch.  Breaker is not tripped.  Assuming there is something in between the breaker and my switch that is hanging me up?

  In Search of Split Front Bumper
Posted by: Glenn and Laureen - 09-20-2021, 10:08 PM - Forum: Replacement part information - Replies (6)

Does anyone know where I can get a split front bumper for my 1984 Classic? It originally came with one but a previous owner replaced it with a single piece bumper for looks. The problem is that I have to take the bumper off to pull my generator out to add coolant or adjust the air/fuel screw or to access the gen set for any reason.

My BIL, Clarke Hockwald, found a rear bumper on Ebay for his 82 a few years ago but no luck there at the moment.

  KVH Tracvision A7 stuff
Posted by: Wanderman - 09-20-2021, 12:49 PM - Forum: Televisions, Satellite, Audio Visual Stuff - No Replies

Hey All,
 My coach has a KVH TracVision A7 flat antenna on the roof. I am missing the receiver/antenna controller and the remote. While i know it can't be used with Dir4ecTV any longer I would like to experiment with it.

I may have already found a receiver (KVH/Tracvision Mobile Receiver M10) and a Remote (HUGHES) that may be correct.

Has anyone replaced an A7 and, like me, packratted the components?

Heart Not sure if this counts....
Posted by: Floridian - 09-19-2021, 06:19 PM - Forum: Newell Sightings - No Replies a Newell sighting but here we go:

Watching a documentary about Schumacher today on Netflix I thought I saw a couple of newell's and then I was sure those were Newell's (in Italy during 1994)

Attached are screenshots of the two Newells I saw. it was curious to know they were in Imola, Italy Smile 

How cool is that!

If you watch at that time you'll see it much more clearly than open the screenshots( timestamps on the screenshots

  Stair cover halfway works
Posted by: Tfrazier - 09-18-2021, 08:31 PM - Forum: Air Operated Systems and Leaks - Replies (8)

Hi all, 
My stair cover will not extend when activated, but it does release so I can manually pull it out. 
No problem retracting the step cover. Hit the switch and it closes right up.
Had anyone experienced this? Any suggestions on what I can do to fix it?

  Oil drain plug - my imagination, or problem ?
Posted by: Guy - 09-18-2021, 04:51 PM - Forum: General Repair - Replies (13)

Changed the oil today in the 8V92, something I have done several times, and something I have had done in shops before . When I removed the plug, I was surprised at how easy the plug came out. Never been a " gorilla tight " plug, but I don't remember it being so easy. It is a plug, not a bolt, so there is no sholder to make positive contact with the pan. I have experienced no drips or leaks, so I don't know if I am just being overly cautious. Before putting the plug back in, I examined the threads, and they look fine , both the pan and the plug. I would estimate that I am able to get about 10 ft lbs on the plug. Any more than that it continues to move. I cheaped out years ago and my Harbor Freight torque wrenches, both inch lbs and ft lbs are worthless at low values. I have not replaced the oil in the engine yet, being on the fence regarding this plug, which has served me well for 40 thousand miles and 8 oil changes. Any thoughts?

I can't believe after 50 years of working on cars, I am having an issue with such a simple thing......

  Surge Protector questions....
Posted by: HoosierDaddy - 09-16-2021, 05:42 AM - Forum: Electrical - Replies (5)

I'm currently using a Progressive portable SP that plugs into power pole.
I am considering hard wiring one into my Newell downstream from the power TX switch giving it the ability to protect both pole and generator power. Is this a common practice?

  Battery merge relay and why we change them
Posted by: mycbarnes - 09-15-2021, 04:42 PM - Forum: Electrical - Replies (4)

Lots of discussion on merging of the house and engine batteries on other threads. I just changed my merge relay for a couple of reasons, it was old, hot and it had some internal resistance across the contacts producing a voltage drop. I think Newell recommends changing this relay every year. So I cut mine open to show why. It is a simple coil magnet plunger with contacts. The contacts were pitted and burned a little, the contact disc was the same.You never know when the next closing will either weld together the contacts, or the coil fail to pull down the plunger from heat damage. The part for mine was a Cole Hersee 24106 found easily on Amazon. It is very easy to change. But I recommend disconnecting shore power and batteries isolated first. A short to ground while energized will be same as a welder.
