  Weird air leak
Posted by: Georgeb - 08-12-2018, 12:28 PM - Forum: Air Operated Systems and Leaks - Replies (2)

Our coach is 395
We bought it through MOT. During our first trip I was impressed by how long it would hold
Air pressure. The chassis side (what I think of as brakes/air bags) would hold air for weeks.
The coach side (doors/toilet) for 36+ hours.
Prior to retiring I owned a fleet of trucks and anything that held air that long suprised

Now the rest of the story
Last winter we made a long swing down to TX to visit grandkids, then on to AZ for winter.
While in TX the air compressor started running about every 30 min. SO I got out the spray
Bottle and started chasing air more got real cold before we got out of KY
I found several leaks, BUT the compressor still ran every 30-40 mins

Remember it had been running once a day before this trip!

On our return from AZ we stopped at Camp Newell. The list of stuff was short, but the air
Leak was on the list. We were in the shop 5-6 hours and the tech found 3 small leaks.
But the compressor still ran to much (compared to before)

We headed back to KY where upon our arrival I order a leak detector.
A medical issue prevented me from using the new detector until hot weather

Guess what I found??
It had healed it’s self!!!

I’m now in Galveston TX and the compressor runs about once a day 

Does anyone have any idea what is going on????
Hot weather effected something??? if so what ??

I love the change BUT wonder what happened

  SCS A/c issues
Posted by: Rongripon - 08-11-2018, 05:31 PM - Forum: Air Conditioning - No Replies

Well, the Saga of Coach 660 continues. Basement air went out last October..Got to Newell and they supposedly replaced a control board. It lasted about 30 minutes. out again. board wasn't correctly soldered. got back the repair shop and I got it back last week. Put it in and sill not right. Changed the start and runs caps. Now, before I go any further, I need to replace the "outdoor" blower motor. 

Anyone had this wonderful experience and took in the front and it's hot.  

i feel like a farmer, harvesting all this experience. not hardly

  How to change out Oil Pressure gage
Posted by: CDButsch - 08-11-2018, 02:53 PM - Forum: Help, I need help ASAP - Replies (9)

Hi Guru's

I need information on how to change out the oil pressure gauge  on my 1998 Newell Coach.

It pegs out when key is turned on and engine not running.

I disconnected the gauge from the sending unit and turned on the key again and the oil pressure gauge still pegged out. So it's not the sending unit.

I may be assuming incorrectly but I think it is the gauge.

Any suggestions and can one buy one other than from Newell.

Is there a trick to removing the bay doors. I started to slide the outside piece that seems to hold everything together but it stopped about half inch in.

  Thetford drain valves
Posted by: dannymarilyn - 08-08-2018, 06:11 PM - Forum: Plumbing and fixtures - No Replies

Our 1991 # 277 coach has three Thetford part # 08671 drain valves installed. The curb side bus dump is leaking. Are the valves (two are on the driver's side) glued in place, or just siliconed in? I'm trying to determine how to remove and rebuild while causing the least damage to the piping. Removing the valves appears to be the most difficult part of the repair. Thanks!

  Shifter issue
Posted by: Nebraska Neweller - 08-07-2018, 07:38 PM - Forum: General Repair - Replies (7)


1987 Newell Classic 
8V-92 Allison trans 4 speed auto

My shifter seems to have lost power. It will do nothing, No LED lights no shifting. Bus starts and runs.

It always worked in the past.


Where is this system powered from?
Where does it tie in to the bus/ ignition.
Is there a fuse?
Where might said fuse be?

Check for power at the shifter?

Any tips where to start would be helpful.

It appears that there are many connectors in the engine compartment that could use some improvement after 30 years of service. None of them are marked so its going to be fun.........
