  Fogged window repairs at Suncoast
Posted by: Nebster - 12-27-2018, 10:33 PM - Forum: Exterior - Replies (2)

We had 5 fogged Hehr vertical windows on our coach, so while passing through the Hudson, FL, area, we made an appointment and stopped at Suncoast to have them removed, disassembled, cleaned, resealed, and put back in.  We also were starting to see slight fogging on the big driver's window, too, so we were scheduled for a total of 6 windows in three days.  An aggressive, but doable schedule, according to them.

They have a good reputation and clearly a ton of business, and they have hookups for you when on site.


However, please use caution if you bring your Newell to Suncoast:  they do not have a lot of experience with the unique mount that our windows have, and they neglected at first to remove the butyl sealant from around the mounting frame before replacing the windows.  This left several windows proud of the slideout skin by a quarter inch, enough to cause trouble with slide clearance as well as not looking very good.

I made them remove and reinstall correctly, but this work and other issues extended our stay by several days.

They also up-charge for Newell windows by about 80%, which is no big surprise, except that they didn't seem too keen to do 80% more labor to get things done correctly.

If you do go there, be prepared to watch them like a hawk!

If I were doing this again, I would probably just order new windows from Hehr and install them.  Suncoast claims their re-built windows are better-sealed than factory new windows, which may be true, but after all the cost and effort, I'm not sure it's worth the slight savings.

  Compressor on in storage?
Posted by: Samt - 12-27-2018, 08:22 PM - Forum: Air Operated Systems and Leaks - Replies (6)

Should I leave my compressor on when the coach is in storage? Or should I shut it off and let the seals deflate. I have been using an pancake compressor I have and hooking it to the “shop air in” port but wondering if that is necessary.

Video Coolant Leaking on Exhaust Stack Cover??
Posted by: jdkskyking - 12-23-2018, 08:31 AM - Forum: Engine and Transmission Monitoring Systems - Replies (13)

While driving behind me one cold Arkansas day, my wife noticed smoke coming from the area where the exhaust stack enters the muffler. Yesterday a friend took this video. 

After the run we were inspecting the engine bay and I noticed a coolant pipe joint that appears to be missing clamps or the clamps are not in the proper position (see pictures of pipe entering the radiator). Before I brought the coach home a Detroit Diesel shop worked on that side of the engine. 

We’re hoping this is the issue BUT... adding clamps will be difficult!!!

By chance does anyone know what size the pipe/joint sleeve is or what size clamp would be used? I’d like to use T Bolt clamps like the ones used on the pipe above. 

(The first pic loaded 90* from the proper orientation)
