  Leaky dump hose-Not good
Posted by: rundlc - 09-18-2020, 06:28 PM - Forum: Plumbing and fixtures - Replies (6)

So I have been in the fix it phase which just may be always lol, I was concerned that my air assist dump hose was inop. so I called drain master to get an idea on what could be the issue. I told the sales person that I had a leaking hose, she tells me the system will not work without and air tight system.

The P.O. removed the original green hose maybe cause it was bad, anyway they cut the old system apart and purchase some of the low end dump hose and made it fit. So my brand new hose assembly arrives today and I disassemble the crappy hose. The new hose fittings will not fit through the cylinder in the tank that runs from the driver to pass side to where the hose actually connect too!

I love the Newell but I am starting to wonder if they ever expected anyone other than themselves to work on it. This should be a very easy task! Now Im stuck and will have to wait until monday to figure out why???????

Ill post some pics later

  Classic fuel hoses and fittings
Posted by: Tf175 - 09-17-2020, 08:59 AM - Forum: Fuel System - Replies (1)

I am in the process of upgrading the Con Met fuel /water separators to Racor /turbine type units with replaceable filters .
I am currently casting about for the correct plumbing for the engine fuel hoses before removing them from the existing separator . The hoses from tank and engine have female swivel ends , thread is 1 1/16 -12  , which I believe to be 3/4 , size 12 ( on the racer it would be AN dash 12 ). I assumed the fittings would be JIC 37 degree , but the hose end clearly has SAE stamped on it , which I believe to be a 45 degree fitting . The JIC fittings are readily available , SAE not so much . Wondering if anyone could shed light ? 
Hope everyone is well out there !

Gulf shores and Bella Terra took a direct hit from Hurricane Sally.  For those who have attended the No Rally Rallys at Bella Terra, here are a few pictures.  Lots of property damage, but no one injured.

  Honda Racing 91 Newell
Posted by: NotNaturallyAspirated - 09-16-2020, 05:29 PM - Forum: Please introduce yourself - Replies (4)

Hello to all, a few days ago I purchased the one under the subject title that was recently listed in Anaheim on CL last week... yep that's me that struck luck.

At any rate, hello and kind greetings to all forum members herein. Admittedly this beast is a wee bit intimidating at first and I feel that I'll be chiming in often for guidance as this is our first motorhome.

Also, I seem to be struck with a similar dilemma as other forum members of legacy Newell models, where that I feel blind without the coach manuals for me to know my way around this 45 footer; so any help in acquiring the actual User/Owners's Manual(s) and/or where to acquire them, as they apply, would be immense help. 

According to the scant paperwork that I was left with, I have an official Newell Coach Corp letterhead on a sheet of paper declaring that this is model # 440.

I did however download the one on here dated 1992 but obviously it is somewhat different from my model as it was specifically built for Honda Racing by Newell, as far as I know from its history.

Anyhow, please feel free to comment and/or provide guidance as you may see fit as I am somewhat "wet behind the ears" when it comes to diesel motorhomes such as this one, so thank you in advance for any helpful info.

Stay safe,

  Newbie From NC
Posted by: northmeck0255 - 09-15-2020, 05:52 PM - Forum: Please introduce yourself - Replies (5)

Hi, all.  Newbie to Newell’s here.  

A little background, we are fairly experienced RVers.  We’ve owned a travel trailer, two fifth wheels, and a Bluebird Wanderlodge.  

Looking to eventually get back to a MH but I got tired of not having any factory support from Bluebird.  I do most things myself, but farm out what I can’t handle.  

Coming from the ‘Bird, my initial interest is in a non slide unit, preferably with a Series 60.  Look forward to learning and eventually contributing.

  Retractable Entry Step Failing?
Posted by: jdkskyking - 09-15-2020, 05:46 AM - Forum: General - No Replies

Tip For The Day... Now I Know...

The boss called to tell me the retractable entry steps would not extend fully. When I got home and started investigating, everything was moving freely but it seemed like the 12v motor could no longer fully extend or retract the steps.

And now “The Rest of the Story”...

Earlier in the day I had been working on the chassis/engine battery cables and used the battery disconnect to isolate the batteries. When I finished my work I didn’t reconnect the batteries (ground cables) to the coach with the disconnect switch.

The retractable entry step motor was getting the battery + power but didn’t have a solid - ground. It was pulling a ground from some other part of the coach but wasn’t enough to operate the step motor properly. Turn on battery disconnect... all is well.

Simple solution but this is one of those things that can cause lots of headaches on the path to a solution...

Take care!

  1967 Newell Coach 25' 9A25-S-8008
Posted by: Richard1967 - 09-14-2020, 04:48 PM - Forum: Newell History - Replies (8)

I bought this early example of a Newell Coach because why wouldn't I? You just don't see lines and curves like this anymore. 

It is a project and there are some pics in my gallery for those who are intrigued as I was... The old 330 Industrial is running like a Swiss watch. Upgrade to diesel maybe? I really don't want a resto mod however. My guts are telling me to leave it alone and pretty up the exterior to factory glory and enjoy it as is...thoughts?

  Newbie question on classic can you drive with leveling on?
Posted by: The Bus Crew - 09-14-2020, 12:59 PM - Forum: General - Replies (3)

This probably sounds stupid but if I am going over a railroad crossing or a dip from the roadway to a driveway can the bus (1985) be driven while the leveling is all the way up?   Say at a speed of under 3 mph.

  Override switch
Posted by: The Bus Crew - 09-13-2020, 02:36 PM - Forum: General - Replies (7)

I have been unable to figure out what the override switch on the dash by the steering wheel is for.  Anyone know and want to tell me.  

I have a 1985 Newell so I do not have an electronic display as I have read others talk About their override switch for seeing codes.
