  hwh slide dimension info request
Posted by: encantotom - 07-20-2018, 03:18 PM - Forum: Slides - No Replies

i am going to build one of the wheeled carts to support the flat floor slides on my 02 hwh slide coach.  both my front and rear slides are flat floor which mean you cannot pull them in to change the slide seal.  they need to be on a cart to push them out.  

i know slides are supposed to be put in and out in travel mode, but when i do my slide seal i will drop it all the way down so the coach doesnt have any change to droop with the slide out.  

i would be interested in those of you that have flat floor hwh slides, what the overall length of the slide is and what is the height of the slide from the ground to the bottom of the slide when you are in travel mode.  and what the exterior depth of the slide is.  (from outside of slide to the coach.

Slide is stuck.  Talked to Newell and it needs to go to a repair shop.  Is there anyone out there that knows of a place that works on Valid slides near Northern Al/ Chattanooga or Knoxville TN?

Thanks!  Need to get it dropped off so I can continue trip in TOAD.

Nope, not the coveted VMSPC.  This is the black box unit with a display that shows basic engine and transmission info.  
I just ordered a VMSPC and am wanting to sell this one.  Works great but not a customizable display.  It comes with a round 9 pin connector but only has 4 wires connected so you could just change the plug or wire into the existing wires at the diagnostic plug.
If you're interested pm me and make an offer.

  Classic headlight LED upgrade
Posted by: wepaddle4 - 07-17-2018, 06:44 PM - Forum: Electrical - Replies (5)

I never noticed how lousy my headlights are until a couple weeks ago on a late evening arrival in the UP, usually I drive few hours at most on busier interstates with other cars and lights around.

I have decided I would like to see what’s in front of me and I’m looking to upgrade the 4x6 sealed beams to LED.
These DOT approved units from Grote are looking promising.

They are about $150 each, not inexpensive but 1/2 or less of some of the others I’ve looked at.
Does anyone have any experience with these or another good option?

  M.O.T. or Premium Coach
Posted by: bryguymi - 07-17-2018, 02:56 PM - Forum: General - Replies (4)

Hello all,

So I'm considering consigning my 01 Newell with someone that specializes in selling this type of coach, and I'm leaning toward either Motorhomes of Texas or Premium Coach Group.  Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions or advice that might help me decide? 

Thanks much in advance,

Hello All, I'm Dave and my Wife of 34 years is Karen. We recently purchased our Newell, last week. #784, an o6'. I retired about 2 weeks ago and plan to Travel mostly Full time. This is our second Motorhome, We bought our first one new in 97'. A Holiday Rambler DP (330hp Cat) now with about 120K miles on it. (needs to be sold or my Kids have to take it)  I ride and race dirt Bikes, KTM 250 XCW TPI.  I have a car and race in the 24Hrs of Lemons, at various road courses.  Because of my activities I have a rolling garage I pull behind me. Its an 05' Featherlight, All Stainless exterior and Aluminum framed box trailer. It will look great behind the Newell. I enjoy working on mechanical things, but my carer for the last 14 years has kept me busy just managing and not doing. 

Karen on the other hand has raised our 3 great kids. She was A business owner, retired from that. She has since followed her passion, went back to school and trained as a Cordon Blue Chef, not for money but for the passion and to make me fat. She enjoys the Road as I do and the mural that explodes in front of us as we drive across our beautiful country. She is, by the way, a permanent Co Pilot, not interested in driving, which is OK by me, I enjoy the dickens out it.

I look forward to seeing you on the road. If you see us parked, or stopped and come by and say hello. I'm a bit chatty, so plan on spending a few minutes. Maybe Karen will have some delicacies made up.

I have been on the site for years as a guest. Part of why I chose a Newell is because of the support and positive attitude I find on this forum. Never get political, or angry or judgmental and you'll have me forever.

Pictures to follow.

See what I mean about chatty.....

This controls my generator slide and it has started to leak thru one of the bottom ports. Has anyone had the same experience? Can it be rebuilt or does it need to be replaced. I'm thinking there may be some o-rings that need replaced.
