  Newell Future - Electrically Driven Radiator Fans?
Posted by: MarkofSJC - 03-13-2019, 03:04 PM - Forum: Drivetrain - Replies (6)

While I'm always in-awe of class-leading engineering, sometimes adapting to new opportunities makes a lot of sense.

I just discovered that Prevost premiered the launch of using two duplicate sets of electric fans to handle all engine cooling needs.

When you think about it, it totally make sense:
  * I can't think of a late model car that doesn't have an electric powered fan
  * Complete, variable control only runs them as hard as needed for much better efficiency.
  * The HP gain at the wheels could be incredible (reported in the area of 75!)
  * Service-ability must be MUCH easier
  * Redundancy over single, fan-belt operated system is huge
  * Clever use of reverse motors to clear snow (!) but even having them stop operation to clear debris on a regular interval to allow a plastic bag to no longer be suctioned to the grill

I'm sure this makes the electrical management a bit more challenging, but I would guess it's a strong net gain.  Is anyone aware of Newell adopting this?

Just curious.

I guess I'm just not doing enough entertaining.    The crystal cabinet will be replaced by a bookshelf.    The set of glasses appears to be complete and original with no damage.    Mirrored shelves, racks and cabinet doors included.

Please make an offer or just give it a good home.    Can deliver/pickup in Phoenix or western Colorado.

Thumbs Up New Guy To Your Forum
Posted by: Capt. Van - 03-10-2019, 11:07 AM - Forum: Please introduce yourself - Replies (3)

Hi all 

We've been RVing for about 30 years on and off with motor homes from about 24' up to a 43 Winnebago that we sold 4 or 5 years ago, we thought we were done traveling around.

A couple years ago we bough a 30' class c winnie to see if we wanted to get back into traveling. We are enjoying it again but 30 foot is just too small.

I started looking around at something in the 36 foot range with a diesel but haven't found the right one. A good friend of mine is on his 4th Prevost and has been trying to convince me to move up to a "real" coach. I've made several trips with him in his coach to race our cars and it is very nice. 

So here is why I'm here, I found this 40' Newell in Michigan and it looks pretty good to me, I've spent a fair amount of time on the phone with the dealer (Rex at Penterra) and my buddy with the Prevost has spoken to Rex also. I'm flying up Wednesday (from sunny Florida) to see it, and if is what they say it is I think I'll take the leap into a bigger coach.

Here is a link to the listing, it is coach number 652. Do any of you know anything about it or the dealer?

Thanks in advance

Capt. Van
