  Roof Hatch Small Leak
Posted by: Floridian - 06-15-2018, 07:42 AM - Forum: Interior Things - Replies (5)

I have a small leak on one the roof hatch/skylight on a '88 and I can't find how to replace the rubber gasket on it, not to mention I can't buy a replacement for it before I can remove it from it's location, anybody has any idea how to remove the rubber gasket first and then where to get the replacement next?

Thanks!

  Storage
Posted by: Guido - 06-14-2018, 10:21 AM - Forum: General - Replies (5)

When in storage, do you leave the MH plugged into shore power?
Do you leave both inverters on?
How much power does it take per month?
I tried turning inverters off but batteries went down.
So I left plugged in and power company says I used 300 kw last month?

Also, do you dump the air. On suspension when in storage?

  Rear Sway Bar Part Number?
Posted by: 409Mint - 06-13-2018, 02:20 PM - Forum: Suspension/Tires/Wheels - Replies (6)

I was curious if anyone may have a part number handy for a Ridewell rear sway bar for our coach.
Here come Monday,(6/18) I'll be doing front and rear air bags, air compressor on engine and possibly HCV's...

Soooo, it would be awfully convenient to try swinging that in at the same time as well!

Appreciate the help guys.


Sidenote**
I assume we all have pretty similar rear ends (under coach... lol)
Mine looks to be like a 40k lbs Rockwell unit, tag says it has 4:30's

Does anyone know if Valid has service centers around the country.
I am in Indiana and don’t want to make the trip to OK if I don’t have to.

  Compressor Excessive Run at High Altitude
Posted by: rwatts7777 - 06-12-2018, 01:59 PM - Forum: Air Conditioning - Replies (4)

Have just spent 10 days in the Rockies above 7000 feet.
The 110v compressors ran excessively hard while there. I had to manually turn on the compressors and then turn them off to avoid an "excessive run" situation.
I know the compressors lose about 20% of their effectiveness above 5000 feet.
Does anyone have a better solution? I'm told by Newell that I can not adjust the "on" "off" PSI of the compressor.
Any suggestions? Am now in Kansas and all seems to be back to normal.

Rainbow New to Newell.
Posted by: Tammy Hopkins - 06-12-2018, 01:00 PM - Forum: Please introduce yourself - Replies (6)

Angel My husband and I are starting to dream about leaving our comfortable lives and start a year adventure through the USA! We have a Newmar Kountry Star gas coach which is 95% satisfaction.  But we are dreaming of purchasing a well traveled Newell. Out of reach right now but dreaming is needed. It's awesome to see a Newell on the road! And now I am looking for them! Why not buy your last coach next! Just glad I was approved to be apart of such a small part of special creations in Motorcoachs. Very special!  Kind of like being a part of the 2% of the population of the world that have green eyes!! Ha ha! Tongue

  Fuel tank leak
Posted by: Jackflash - 06-12-2018, 12:30 PM - Forum: Fuel System - Replies (6)

I have developed a fuel leak that drips from a point about a foot inside the drivers side directly below the tank.  Anyone have any ideas on this? It started a while back but doesn't seem to be getting any worse. I was parked full time in Tyler Texas through the winter of 16/17 and temp dropped into the low 20's a couple of times.  On those occasions I heard a noise that sounded like someone hitting the tank with a rubber mallet, I assumed it was caused by cold contraction of the air since I didn't have but about half a tank of fuel.  Wondering if I might have popped a weld.

Beautiful coach in Amana Iowa. Too early in the morning to go nocking on the door but the window has a label in it.  Rett and Claire Porter
