  Galley workability
Posted by: Lubehead - 09-16-2019, 06:35 PM - Forum: Newell or Coach things the Ladies would like to share - Replies (2)

Ladies, (I'm not one), and gents as well; can you share your take on the workability of the kitchen galley in mid entry coaches,vintage 2002-2004. It appears that the counter space is lacking and the space between it and the refrigerator appears to be too tight.Can anyone provide dimensions and experiences. This is a concern of my DW.

  4 button Dometic thermostat
Posted by: rheavn - 09-16-2019, 06:27 PM - Forum: Heating Systems - No Replies

My on-off switch became erratic, as it would shut off and on without being cycled.  There are currently two rebuilders.  

Frerich's Electronics will rebuild your thermostat, but you have to remove, ship to them & then they ship it back. 

Hendrix RV Service will send you a repaired unit with a USPS priority box to send your unit back in. 

I ordered one from Hendrix through EBAY.  It arrived in two days.  It was plug & play.  Although there were installation instructions, mine recognized all four roof airs and the AquaHot.

My Newell was parked in my shop for about a month after running great on our last trip. It started great and ran fine as I moved it around the driveway. Once I turned onto the road it would not go above 1000 rpm. I turned around and limped home. I replaced both the primary and secondary fuel filters. It will start...sometimes readily but sometimes it cranks a bit . Altogether I have had it running for approximately 1 hour since changing the filters. At first I had to hold the accelerator pedal wide open just to keep it running at 1000 rpm. It would not go on fast idle at all. After a while I could get it to idle at 500 rpm and fast idle at 750 rpm. After running on fast idle for about 10 minutes it just died. It re-started and idled after that. I filled the filters with fuel before installing and I think it has run enough to work the air out of the system. I have visually checked the air intake. It has been suggested that the computer may be limiting it because of a code. The "check engine" and "stop engine" lights come on momentarily at start-up as normal. I think it is a DDEC 3 engine operating system (1993). Can anybody guide me on how to retrieve engine codes? Or offer any ideas as to why it is limited to 900-1000 rpm .

  Fuel Tank Leaking
Posted by: Latitude 28 - 09-08-2019, 09:31 PM - Forum: Fuel System - Replies (2)

We took a three week trip some 3800 miles and developed a fuel leak while we where on the road. 

The fuel sending unit was bad so I have been filling the tank and keeping track of the fuel burn and estimating the generator usage which worked out to be about 10% of fuel burned.  From the looks of the bottom of the tank, at some point ,it looks like the coach "high centered" over something and scraped the sump area. I think the extra weight fuel put some extra stress on the front welded seam of the sump where it attaches to the bottom of the tank causing the leak.

With a full tank we would leak about 2 gallons per day.....tapered off as the tank level came down.  Which I captured while being parked and recycled or gave to the campground owner for his tractors.  The leak is right at the welded seam of the sump and tank. Taking it to our local radiator shop where they will weld the crack and boil/etch the inside before coating it with POR15 fuel tank sealer.  He has done this to many tanks with only one returned due to not curing the sealer long enough before adding fuel to the tank.  He holds the tank 4 days to completely cure the POR.

While it is out will replace the fuel sending unit and low level float switch.

FYI, I expected all kinds of crud and water on the first drain opening.  There was none....not a drop of water....not a speck of dirt....nothing.  The hardest part was getting the fuel level down on the last leg without the gauge or low level light working, all the while we had the gen running along with the Aqua Hot.  Ended up with having to drain 35 gallons into gas cans. 

Speaking of draining....I learnt something.  Next time I will just remove the sump plug, once, and temporally install a ball valve to meter the fuel off with little more control!


Sorry about the pics being sideways....not sure what happened.  NOTE; Tried the recommended method ( to fix the worked!

  In Motion Satellite Dish System
Posted by: jdkskyking - 09-07-2019, 06:27 AM - Forum: Televisions, Satellite, Audio Visual Stuff - Replies (25)

Hello Gurus,

We’re getting ready for our first “big” trip in 744. Still have a few minor issues to address but things are holding together however...

The original 2005 era KVH in motion dish has crapped out. Only received SD signals anyways and I have converted all TVs to HD. 

Apparently my new Directv receivers don’t get HD programming while moving so I’m going to go all new with Dish service and a matching in motion antenna (I’ll be selling my Directv receivers if anyone wants a couple of new ones). 

 Any recommendations on a new in motion satellite antenna that can drive two Dish receivers. 

Should be a simple internet research project but Google seems to be comprised of reviews which are disguised as Ads for retailers. 

Any help is appreciated... Kristi will want to watch tv while I drive...
