  wifi control of garage doors on the cheap
Posted by: encantotom - Yesterday, 07:56 PM - Forum: Other Stuff - Replies (2)

hi all,

not a newell thing but is part of my newell shop.   i have liftmaster jackshaft medium duty commerical openers on my two shop doors.  

they are not MYQ compatible.  i have the myq setup on our cabin and this works just as good.  

our webmaster scott, found this setup for me and i put it in today.  20 bucks shipped from china and works with a separate android app or alexa.  

these doors have separate open, close and stop controls on the manual buttons on the wall.  so i needed a 4 channel controller.  one for open for each door and one for close each door.  

i used an old power supply i had laying around to power it.  it can use various dc voltages and or ac 120v to power it.  the one i used was 12v dc.  i never throw away old transformers....never know when you will need them.   

then you program the app and hook the controller to your wifi, and program alexa and walla..  i used some old thermostat wire to hook it up.  and zip tied it to the power cord.  each channel uses a ground and a control wire.  so 4 wires per opener.  

it works flawlessly.  only this is the doors need to go all the way up or all the way down.  cant stop them part way using the app.  

i have a scissors lift so it is easy to get at stuff up high.

  combination washer dryer

I have to replace my combination washer dryer.  It is one single front loading unit, not a stack-able.  It shook itself to death.  Any recommendations?

  Parking brake release ( or not)
Posted by: Guy - 11-17-2019, 11:13 AM - Forum: General Repair - Replies (3)

Had a new parking brake valve installed last week to replace one that had a large leak. The new valve often fails to release, acting as if there is not enough air pressure. After a few tries, it will release. At the time I had the valve replaced, the brakes were also adjusted. Wondering if the two changes are related. It might just be my imagination, but it seems as though there is a lot of resistance to finally get the coach rolling after the valve does actuate.

  Low air warning buzzer
Posted by: Wardworks - 11-17-2019, 09:53 AM - Forum: Suspension/Tires/Wheels - Replies (14)

I know that no 2 Newell's are alike but can anyone tell me where to find the Low Brake Air pressure warning buzzer on a 2003? The low level light works but when doing my pre-trip I don't here the audible now.

  Looking for classic Newell repair recomendations
Posted by: The Bus Crew - 11-17-2019, 05:51 AM - Forum: Coach Related Service, Repair or Maintainence - Replies (5)

We are looking for recommendations in Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina for mechanical and electrical work.  We have been to two shops locally already and both let us down.  So now looking to see if anyone on here has used a shop in these states (seems like most recommendations are in AZ, CA and FL).  Our bus runs and drives but closer is better (assuming equal service provided) currently in Lexington Kentucky.

  Low Fuel Level Switch Access Cover
Posted by: Latitude 28 - 11-13-2019, 06:13 PM - Forum: Fuel System - Replies (1)

While I had my fuel tank out it became apparent, from the tank side of the wheel well.  There is an access plate for the low level sensor.  It is held in place with two screws.  Mine was still covered with the spray foam, on the wheel side of that bulkhead.  It looked undisturbed and original that completely hid the panel.
