  Complete booth for 2000
Posted by: bestgenman - 01-05-2021, 06:04 PM - Forum: Parts Swap/Giveaway/Sell - Replies (3)

The previous owner included a complete dining booth with the purchase of 567.  I have no need for it and it must go.   So, if you want it, come get it.  I can ship but it would be expensive going as LTL freight.

  Front heater blower
Posted by: Jackflash - 01-05-2021, 10:43 AM - Forum: Heating Systems - Replies (2)

Does anyone know where the fuse is for this blower?       It's in the bay below the mid-entry door.  I think the blower may be trashed though, there was a leak at the hose connections to the heater core that sent coolant through the blower.  It will turn but not easily.  Any ideas where to find the blower?

  Helping a friend
Posted by: rheavn - 01-05-2021, 05:42 AM - Forum: Air Operated Systems and Leaks - Replies (5)

Been helping a friend with air leaks.  Using an ultrasonic leak detector we identified five air leaks outside, without going under the coach.  We also identified one air leak inside.  Four of the leaks were push in air fittings and one leaking plastic shut off valve.  All leaks were stopped using dot compression air fittings and replacing the plastic shut off valve with a metal ball valve.

The place to start in getting your coach air leak free is to go through your coach and replace all push in air fittings with brass dot compression type fittings.  The time to do this is before you are sitting in a vacation spot and your air compressor runs all the time.

Push in air fittings are great money saving devices for production, but will begin leaking not long after the coach is put in use.  I have been asked why Newell and Prevost convertors use push in air fittings............................It saves a tremendous amount of production time now, but headaches for the coach owner down the road.

  Microphor air leak
Posted by: Newell467 - 01-04-2021, 05:41 PM - Forum: Plumbing and fixtures - Replies (3)

I have an air leak on my toilet. It is coming from the valve on the inside that connects to the handle. There is a brass cap on the end with a small hole in the middle. That is where the air is coming from. Any ideas what the fix for this is?

  Changes in the chassis/drivability/livability through the years.
Posted by: Burlyman - 12-31-2020, 08:07 PM - Forum: Newell History - Replies (17)

I was wondering if someone could address the significant changes and differences in the chassis construction, drivability, and certain features like IFS, etc as each model has evolved into the next.  Although my budget will probably have me looking at a late 80s to early 90s model, I am quite sure others would be interested to know how things progressed through the decades.  Obviously, things like propane disappeared and slide-outs became a norm, 8v92s were replaced with s60s and other engine offerings, but what where the things that made each model a "wow" improvement over the previous model designation?

  hwh rap1940 failure
Posted by: encantotom - 12-31-2020, 06:41 PM - Forum: Air Operated Systems and Leaks - No Replies

these valves fail in just a couple of ways.  

1.  the plunger seal gets scored such that it no longer completely covers the orfice in the body of the valve.  only solution is to replace the plunger.  how does that happen you ask?   our air systems have moisture in them and cause rust in the tanks.  that rust flakes off and gets between the seal and the orfice and causes it to score allowing air to get by when it should be sealed.  

2.  the 12v coil.  that is very very rare.  

3.  an o ring failure.  there are 2 orings on the outside on the bottom as you see where they go in the picture.  and one internally.  rare failure too

4.  in the picture below here is a valve body that has a metal failure in place where the o ring goes.  you can see it is mis shappened.  i am making the assumption that this happens if the valve is overtightened on the six pack manifold.  so dont over tighten them.  make sure you have some o ring grease on the rings and tighten snugly.

  Alternator conversion
Posted by: Deper10 - 12-30-2020, 07:59 AM - Forum: Electrical - Replies (10)

Merry Christmas and Happy New year to all.

My 300 amp alternator went out so I replaced it with a new one but the new one has an internal regulator and the old had an external Pentex PX 4000 regulator. The shop that sold me the new one gave me a diagram and explained that I only need the blue ignition wire in addition to battery and ground but did not mention doing anything with the existing regulator. It is not working properly and I now believe I was supposed to disconnect the wires from the old regulator but not sure what to do with them. Has anyone else dealt with this?

I am grateful for all the members of NewellGurus, the administrators and to our founders Tom and Darlene. Together, you have built a platform to enrich each other's knowledge, to develop meaningful relationships with one another and to enjoy traveling throughout the U.S. and other countries represented by the memberships of this site.

This has been a tough year for many of us, with lockdowns, businesses closing, some permanently, deaths and hospitalizations and personal losses. But we are resilient and I for one am looking forward to what 2021 will bring. 

Today is a day of joy and celebration. To over 2 Billion people, today represents the ultimate gift of Jesus Christ. I hope that to everyone, it represents a day of joy and friendship, a day of appreciation for the many wonders that surround us, and a day of togetherness, even if only by Zoom or Skype or Facetime. Today is a day of peace and love.

Please rejoice with Georgia and I. You have each contributed to a community that puts others first and pride last. That is a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas.

Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, Joyeux Noel, Fröhliche Weihnachten, Boun Natale, Счастливого Рождества, メリークリスマス
