Hey y'all, my name is Bill, I live in north central Texas about 60 miles north of Dallas, up by lake Texoma. I have been looking for an older Newell, I really like the mid to late 80s models, definitely want a Detroit pusher, I like them most of all, because they remind me of a bus, and that is the look that I want, that and the mid entry door. I have been wading through adds that pull up on google, only to find that they are years old adds, found two here in Texas, but no reply, so I assume they are not         still for sale, see pictures, anyway if anyone has a lead on one for sale, in driving condition, as I am not looking for a project, but I do want something that I can maintain into my old age, if I can find a nice one, it will be passed down to my family. We are raising our two grandsons, and they love to travel, and go camping.

I am beyond frustrated right now!!!!!!!!!!  We are trying to find a simple 30.00 seal for my load adapter pump assembly for the cooling fan.  There are no part numbers on the load adapter that we can find. I read the topic that Richard posted some time ago and hoped that the seal would be the same. We ordered the seal, paid overnight as my coach as been sitting waiting for multiple weeks for parts. The seal was wayyy too small for my load adapter.  Service at Newell says they cannot remember ever havin a seal leak on one, they've only replaced the load adapters themselves.
I reached out to Tom and he pretty much has the same load adapter as Richard. I really am scratching my head over here and my bill is just getting higher. Talk about not too happy right now.

I am in touch with Hydraquip, they "may" have tracked down the right one, I gotta pay 75 plus shipping to find out though! I'll post my results

It pains me to have to sell our coach, but circumstances necessitate that we sell my favorite toy.  I haven't had it for very long, but I’ve treated it as if I was going to have it forever - completing a lot of service, updates and general functional improvements.  

The list of improvements is quite long, and I am still composing it.  I have several binders with hard copies of reference manuals and service records.  It will include a stocked tool chest so your never stranded, as well as kitchenware, linens, and other necessities for immediate occupation.  The VMSpc tablet mounted at the dash includes digital versions of nearly all related manuals on its hard drive.  It will be ready to roll and be lived in without having to stock up on items like you’re starting from scratch with a new house.

We just took it on a Thanksgiving Day trip, and it drove like a champ.

Here are some pics from the last time it was listed:

I’ll post a list of recent services, upgrades, and other items that are included once I have it completed. 

Currently located in PA, & asking $225K

Hi gang, my name is Bill. I have been looking at older bus conversions for a while now, GM 4104s and 4106s as well as MCI buses. I stumbled across a few older Newells, most turned out to be ancient adds, I don't know why they don't take them down after they are sold. The older Newells 89 and back to 84 have caught my eye, and I know that everyone on here has been drooling over the one in NC, but I'm like most on here, it is not worth what they are asking, and it's at a dealership, so you get to pay even more for it. I had one guy pulling my chain from MO on a red and silver 86, he was using the add pictures from when he bought it, ever how many years ago, or he is just a scammer, trying to cash in on a dreamer. I do like them a lot, and they are well appointed, and they remind me of a bus, and that is what I'm after, but being down here in Texas nothing remotely close has come up for Newells anyway. Still looking for that needle in a hay stack.

Hello Gurus, 
I have a question regarding my Powerline model 33-53 battery isolator (please see pictures attached). 
When I check voltage across "A" to ground; "B" to ground; "C" to ground -- I get 12.4vdc. My question is on the voltage across "B" to ground... If the diodes in the isolator are operating correctly, shouldn't the voltage be 0 between "B" and ground?
Thanks for any insights.

    on coach #728 2005 Newell
CHECK THIS AREA IMMEDIATELY , a few more miles and this could have been a major engine fire. That Cat engine vibrates a lot at idle and this means you need to be extra vigilant on your wire and hose inspections or you could have a big coolant leak or even worse when a 1/2 Power cable shorts out against the engine. I found this today while looking for a coolant leak.

I've been tracking down leaks, I watched all of Richards videos and found 3 major leaks, the first 2 I ordered parts for but this last one is the air dryer. Is this unit rebuildable? Has anyone done this before? Its not leaking from the filter itself its the part of the housing that has the name wabco on it.

I have so many things to be grateful for and one of those is the friendships I have developed as a result of owning a Newell. Some of my strongest friendships developed on this site and its predecessor site. This site and my church have provided me with a wealth of friends that I can not thank enough for their caring and their time.

I am particularly grateful for Tom and Darlene, without whom this site and many of those friendships would not have existed.

We are blessed beyond belief. I thank the Lord daily for each of you.

Happy Thanksgiving.

I have a conundrum.

My mid bath (the 1/2 bath one) is working fine. When flushed, it goes all the way through the cycle and when complete and bowl is refilled I get a low pitch "hum" which is definitely an air leak, but I cannot figure out where or how to fix it. I checked all the fittings internally and none are leaking. It may be from the spool? Maybe an o-ring when bad??

Any idea what would cause this AFTER a complete cycle. It drains my supply air system in minutes!

Of course we're on the road in Avon, NC. beautiful place albeit a bit on the small side. Pictures in the AM. If anyone is nearby, you are welcome to visit. We'll be here until Friday.
