  What is this lever for?
Posted by: Johnnyboy - 05-13-2019, 08:46 AM - Forum: General - Replies (8)

Any ideas what this lever is for. It’s tied into the air system. This is on a 1996 45ft model. Thanks

  Slide Room Lock Pin Hole
Posted by: Latitude 28 - 05-12-2019, 05:37 PM - Forum: Slides - Replies (7)

Guys,
Question for you all....concerning the slide pin receptor hole.  When the slide is deployed and this hole fills up with water after a rain or two.  How does the water drain out of this hole or does it?  If it doesn't drain out...where does it go when you bring the slide in and the lock pin engages?

What I am fighting with is a persistent water leak in the bedroom slide, aft wall area.  I did find a screw that fell into in that receptor some time ago, it was giving me some trouble with the lock pin.  That screw may have poked a hole into the bottom part of it during the lock sequence.  

Thanks,
Steve

  2007 Newell #815 For Sale
Posted by: valento - 05-12-2019, 04:51 PM - Forum: Coaches for Sale (Please read the info in the Category description) - Replies (5)

For pictures of this coach go to my gallery. I took them earlier this year while I was in Florida.

The coach currently has gone 130579 miles.

It has a CAT C15 pre cert engine, does not use DEF, with Allison transmission.

The 20kw generator has 1380 hours on it. The coach originally only had a 15kw.

Added Road King shocks and rear sway bar.

The coach is currently located in Nacogdoches, TX. If I do not have any interest through this posting I will be consigning it with Motor Homes of Texas in about 2 weeks.

The price I am asking is $350,000 but will be negotiable with guru members.

I have all the original manuals and also the maintenance records from when I have owned the coach and some that were left by the coach drivers of the previous owner Bobby Rahal Racing.

I will be downsizing to a 36'-38' Foretravel.

Some of the gurus have seen my coach at the last rally in Foley, AL, so they can vouch that the photos still reflect the condition of the coach.

Hope this coach finds a good home.

  Fresh water leak in rear bath
Posted by: KJReed - 05-11-2019, 11:02 AM - Forum: Plumbing and fixtures - Replies (8)

Hello Gurus. While at the no rally rally last week, my headhunter pump had issues, then worked fine, then had issues again the morning I left.  During the trip home, I was troubleshooting some more and FINALLY discovered a water leak.

It is a decent amount running down into the compartment with the shore power cord and a small amount of dripping on to the tag axle tire. 

There is rust on the roof of the shore power compartment so that tells me it’s been an issue for quite some time.  

Also of note, with the pump running the water pressure from the faucets holds pretty good when using cold water but drops significantly when using the hot water side of faucets.  In the shower it has almost zero water pressure when turned to hot.  So my thinking is that the issue is with the hot water supply and likely in the shower. 

I spent some time turning the valves off to see if I could isolate the issue but that seemed to make no difference. 

Next step I did was to remove what I could under the vanity and on the shower wall to expose the water lines and find the leaker. Everywhere that is visible is bone dry up to the point the water lines go into the sub flooring.

I’m at the point that I think the leak is with a supply line that is in the sub floor which to me is a pretty serious and deep issue.  

Any one ever had anything similar and able to offer any insight?

If not, I’m thinking my next step would be to find a way to get it out to the folks at Newell.  (Need to have one slide out repaired any way due to bad bearings.)

  Purpose of Air System Switch
Posted by: Glenn and Laureen - 05-10-2019, 08:55 PM - Forum: Please introduce yourself - Replies (9)

Hello, everyone. Glenn Parker, of Austin TX, here with my first post. My wife (Laureen) and I recently bought a 1984 Newell 35' coach that had been posted on this site by the previous owner in Gridley, CA. My wife's BIL (Clarke Hockwald) is a member of this forum and helped us evaluate the coach thoroughly before the purchase and we are very happy with it. Put new tires on it in Gridley and had a little maintenance done at All Aboard America in Mesa, AZ before heading home to Texas. One thing that is puzzling me is that I don't know the function of one switch in the center console that seems to be related to the house air system (all the leveling switches are right there). It is unmarked and is the bottom switch in the photo (or the far right, depending on how the photo appears). I have had the switch in both positions and can't seem to tell any difference in operations. Any ideas as to its purpose?

  Longevity Of Roof Air Conditioners
Posted by: rcantrell52 - 05-10-2019, 05:13 AM - Forum: Air Conditioning - Replies (15)

All, 
Newell started construction on our 08 in 2006. How long will the roof air conditioners last or when should they be replaced? In June 2018 I took the coach to Newell for it's yearly PM. During the PM the air conditioners had their amps measured while in use. When in use A/C #1 and 2 were using between 10-11 amps each and A/C #3 and 4 were using approximately 9 amps each. At what point do I need to replace A/Cs #1 and 2? Will I throw a breaker if 50 amps is exceeded?
Any and all comments is appreciated.

  How to Stay Cool While Traveling
Posted by: rcantrell52 - 05-09-2019, 03:15 PM - Forum: General - Replies (8)

All,
We own a 2008 Newell Coach that 4 roof air conditioners and has dash air. On Tuesday we drove from Miami, OK to home in Tyler, TX. The trip is about 8 hours and we left Miami at noon. The outside temperature during the trip ranged from high 70's to low 80's. I ran the generator and ran a/c unit number 1 and set the thermostat at 70 degress. I put the dash air on at the coldest setting and at the highest speed. When we got to our destination I looked at the thermostat of a/c number 1 and it showed that it was 87 degrees in that area of the coach. Any suggestions on trying to stay comfortable?

  Cabinet Above Front Entry Door
Posted by: rcantrell52 - 05-08-2019, 06:04 PM - Forum: General - No Replies

All, 
If you have a front entry Newell you need to look at the box above the front entry door. This box will have a of buttons plus the box for the antenna/cable buttons. Look at the bottom of that cabinet and see if you have two screws that have been screwed into the bottom of that box. If you have the screws you are good if not you need to have them installed on your next visit to Newell. If you have no screws then that box is held by two 10 pound hooks. Newell Coach techs calls this box a speaker box.
We did not have the screws and the box fell from that ledge. The only thing preventing that box front hitting me the head was the cables inside the box. Called Newell and detoured from our trip home to the factory for repairs. The detour was 500 miles. Monday was a long day. We drove for 13.5 hours.

  Dometic Condenser Fan Motor Replacement
Posted by: Richard - 05-08-2019, 03:52 PM - Forum: Air Conditioning - No Replies

The original spec motors for this application are nigh impossible to find. 

This motor from Grainger works. https://www.grainger.com/product/3RCX4?c...ad2d102e99

The belly band fits around the body, the shaft is the right length and diameter. You will have to saw/grind the mounting screws off both ends. You will also have to demount the included start cap. You have two equal choices then, use the included start cap 5MFD, or use the original fan portion of the original start cap.
