  early 90's cream with beige stripes in Surprise AZ
Posted by: encantotom - 10-01-2012, 10:52 AM - Forum: Newell Sightings - No Replies

my daughter laura has become quite the newell spotter after spending a month traveling with us this summer.

out by her home in surprise she saw a early 90's cream colored newell with beige stripes on Olive Street.

I will teach her to tell the year better but from what she describe (she compares it to our two coaches), she was close.

  Future problem???
Posted by: rheavn - 09-30-2012, 06:58 PM - Forum: Coaches for Sale (Please read the info in the Category description) - Replies (2)

Does any one else foresee a problem coming for Newell as the 2014 models are now selling for 1.8 million. Seems to me that Newell is moving toward a problem that the Prevost converters ran into and that is not enough people able to buy their coaches. Prevost prices have stabilized and even dropped. Newell's break even point seems to be around 24 coaches a year and that is where they have been for several years now. A few less sales could be very bad. I hope my impression is wrong. Just wondering if I'm the only one with these concerns.....................I owned a Country Coach when a vibrant business went into liquidation very quickly.

  Serious Issue
Posted by: Erniee - 09-30-2012, 03:46 PM - Forum: General - Replies (6)

Folks, there has been many discussions on the fires that have been caused by rv refrigerators. Another disaster happened last night when a friends coach caught fire. Fortunately, he, his dog and his wallet survived. He had enough time to get out with just his underware. His wife was in another location. He had a Norcold and had all the recalls and recalls on the recalls done. The coach from kitchen to drivers area is gone. He had a working smoke detector, Thank God.
I went out to my coach and I have a Dometic. I checked the smoke detector above the refer and found out it is defective. I will purchase a couple more detectors this week. When that unit goes out, a Whirlpool will take its place.
Tom is a member of the wanderlodge group and maybe he can get the photos about this situation. I don't believe anyone should take this lightly. Ernie Ekberg

This is the first Guru contest. Maybe Tom can award the winner some extra stars! If not, you will have the satisfaction of winning.

Below is a picture of the mystery item. Yes, it is cracked, otherwise I would not have gone to the trouble. It came originally on my '99. What is it?

  Air filter change
Posted by: rheavn - 09-29-2012, 05:06 PM - Forum: General Repair - Replies (28)

Been watching my Filterminder and it was at 20. At 25 it calls for a filter change. I've always changed my air filters at 30,000 miles as these diesels kick up a lot of dust. I have also heard of some air filters degrading and breaking up & parts going through the turbo. I was anxious to do an autopsy on my air filter after 30,000 miles. The inlet side of the filter was very dirty. The outlet side was clean. Using a light I could see no light through the filter. I saw no degrading of the paper element which was a positive. It is my opinion that 30,000 miles is about right for changing the air filter.

  Chesters 2001 Coach
Posted by: encantotom - 09-29-2012, 03:38 PM - Forum: General - Replies (1)

Hi all,

Darlene and I and the grandkids went to see Chester's 2001 and spend some time with him and Jan. Besides being really neat folks and extremely welcoming to us, their coach is absolutely stunning. It is very very beautiful and clean. They are visiting here from Mexico where they live. Jan has family here in the Phoenix area and they come often to see them.

We spent almost 3 hours with them including lunch at a local restaurant (thanks chester!)

we went through all his bays and talked newell for a long time and then went inside and visited.

Will see Chester tomorrow for a little while and visit again.

Thanks Chester and Jan!

Most of us have wanted or needed the air solenoids on the leveling system. they are a HWH RAP 1940 part number.

newell does sell them. have any of you found a source for them besides newell?
