  Best 10 Modifications
Posted by: Richard - 12-31-2017, 06:16 AM - Forum: Anything else - Replies (10)

Most of the guru crowd has pimped the coach in one way or another to address a permanent fix, correct a design flaw, or simply add customization. It's kind of slow, because of the holiday, so I thought I would start a thread on the top ten favorite coach mods.

Here are mine:

1. Three way toggle switch to activate jake brakes off of accelerator or brake pedal
2. Treadle style air brake pedal
3. External contactors for AC compressors
4. Solid surface flooring
5. Combination style door lock
6. 365 Front tires
7. Aluminum  Coolant Expansion Tank
8. Air Ride Drivers Seat for Passenger side
9. LED Headlights with relays
10. Direct Drive Generator Blower

And looking at the other lists reminded me:

Rear Sway Bar

  School Bus Conversions
Posted by: Richard - 12-31-2017, 06:03 AM - Forum: General - Replies (3)

In the holiday channel surfing, I stumbled on a TV program on Direct called Bus Life Forever. The show is about a guy who specializes in school bus conversions. I thought it might be interesting. 

I watched and did a big "What!!!!!!!!" when the budgets for three conversions on this episode ranged from 30 to 100K. 

Man, that is some wicked kool aid, or some terribly uninformed people. 

I am guessing this is a spillover from the Tiny House folks who are paying nutty prices for tricked out storage sheds.

  disk brake part and other STUFF
Posted by: Rongripon - 12-31-2017, 05:06 AM - Forum: Help, I need help ASAP - Replies (11)

The saga of coach 660 continues. Brakes now. The calipers have two bolts, both fine thread metric. The longer of the two, on the bottom, is GONE. trying to get information on the brakes, axles and drive carrier is almost impossible..

contacted Newell, no help. called who i think was the mfg for the rear drive axle. no help. been calling every nut and bolt mfg and you can guess, no help.

the missing bolt is an M16-1.5-approx 140-160 mm.

if anyone has suggestions, i am certainly open for them. Going to be at Newell on 1/8 for slide work and a couple of other things. I still don't have a fix for the erratic door closing

  SPOT PLB
Posted by: folivier - 12-29-2017, 01:55 PM - Forum: Technology In General - No Replies

Personal locator beacon!  Since Cindy and I started traveling in the Newell and now in the Lazy Daze we've had a SPOT PLB in my pocket or backpack.  In light of Clarkes recent scare and knowing that quite a few of you hike, bike, and off road ride in areas that have weak or non-existent cell signals I would suggest that you (you know who you are) look into buying one of these.  Garmin also makes one.
It could make a huge difference in getting back home safely.  Or getting back to your loved ones at all.

  Door slow in freezing weather
Posted by: Yachts - 12-29-2017, 10:39 AM - Forum: Air Operated Systems and Leaks - No Replies

My entry door had moved to a crawl after a night of sub15 degree weather. Compressor would cycle every 30 seconds and run for may be 30 seconds. Figured I had a frozen line somewhere. I took a small pancake compressor I had added about half a quart of airline anti freeze to the air hose. Connected it to the coach like they do at newell within 5 mins all was working good again.

I've scanned in my original Owner's Manual.  This is for Number 500, 1998.  Also have the manuals for every piece of equipment on the rig in .pdf format if anyone needs them.
