We left our coach in Denver last month and flew to Los Angeles for a little Grand daughter time. Freezing was not going to be an issue as we  (I) had checked the weather predictions. You know where this post is going. Day three of our vacation away from full time rv life, I saw that it had been getting in the teens at night in Denver. Whatever damage was done was already done. 

 When we returned to Denver, with a little block heater time, the 8V92 came quickly to life along with the engine co

It's early, I have too much coffee, and it's too dark to play outside. 

This time of year, the forum gets a fair amount of commentary on air system weirdness and leakage. 

We all know that water in the air system creates rust in the tanks, the rust creates debris that can migrate and clog small orifices, and air valves such as the Height Control Valve, the potties, and all the air operated doors can experience problems. Not to mention the possible contamination of the braking system compon

Have 2007 Coach 797 with Valid Air Trueline Leveling System. Two Thomas compressors. 166k miles.

Just came from Newell where they replaced 13 fittings on the air system, they replaced hoses and valves in the Bode door, did a wheel alignment that required an adjustment of a newly replaced front Height Control Valve.

In Montana at present where it's been nippy for us Florida thin bloods at around 4500 feet.

Coach Thomas compressors, at Newell, came on every 40 minutes for 30-45 seconds. N

Hi all,

I have been camping in Montana and have seen a tremendous increase in the leak down rate of the air system. I'm now getting just over 1.3 minutes of compressor off time and about 1.25 minutes on time. I had the system performing in excess of the 45 minute rate just last month. I am on my way to Vancouver B.C. and need a shop with a pit that can search out the leaks. I cannot get under the coach well enough to find the problem.  

Spokane would be a good stop for me or the Seattle ar

I can't find any air leaks.  Loosing about a pound a minute when parked. 110volt compressor cuts in at 70 and cuts out at 90. Runs about 5 to 10 mins every 20 mins.  I have ruled out the air bags and the leveling, stays level with the leveling system off.  Only 3 air powered items, the toilet, drivers seat and an interior sliding pocket door.  Soapy watered everything I could find and I do not see or hear any leaks.  

Could a 110v compressor be set up only on the auxiliary side of the air sys

Both times (another story) I have replaced my radiator the bottom connection for the transmission cooler has been a source of leaks. The leak occurs where the 3/4NPT pipe screws into the transmission cooler on the radiator. This joint is further complicated by the fact that a TEE is on the other end of pipe nipple, and the TEE is where the transmission temp is taken for the gauge on the dash. You can’t just spin the nipple to make it tighter without the TEE hitting the fan shroud. And I added a

I have some questions about our coach. 
This is the first trip we have been on since taking ownership of the Newell. It’s suppose to be relaxing and it’s turning into a mechanical schooling instead, lol.

Dear Fellow Newell owners, this affects any owner having two piece (basement) AC units.  Our coach is # 277, and we just had three failed AC units.  The fans had quit.

WW Grainger sells 1/6 hp fans and mounting brackets that with a bit of welding to modify the brackets work great.  Anyway, after the fan repairs, two units quit again.  What I found was the copper tubing had shifted and rubbed.  All the R-22 freon was gone!

There are two fixes after repairing the holes in the copper tubing w
