RE: Newell is a good ride right?

Tom/Barb - Newells are not fiberglass they are aluminum. But your comment is valid, time takes a toll on everything. OP - your thought process is valid about buying an older high end RV versus a newer mid range. I have been exeposed to many Newells, Marathon's, Liberty, Millenium's and their owners over the last 3 years here at Motor Coach Country Club in Indio CA. One thing that many state is that they prefer a coach built on a bus chasis (Prevost) instead of the custom chasis (Newell). They have stated that the ride is better and there are less issues when using the bus chasis. I love the Newells myself, went and did a factory tour and love the layouts and designs, maybe soon I will have one. Do your research before you buy.

Trackrig, did the drawer slides you got from HD lock in place when shut ? If yes do you have anymore info on these parts ?

Drawer sliders keep breaking

In the back of my drawers where the slider connects to the wall there is a plastic piece that is attached to the wall and the slider attaches to this. Over time these plastic pieces break, due to weight in the drawer and road bumps. I have replaced over 20 of these and they are a real PITA. Has anyone found a replacement part made of of metal ? Or have you replaced the sliders with something that is more sturdy ? Let me know.

RE: Looking for Motorized Windshield shade

I have 2 motorized MCD shades installed in the front and manual pull down on the drivers and passenger sides. They do a good job but I wish they looked better.

Inverter use and electronics

I have had a convection oven and 2 sat receivers go bad after using my inverter to power the electronics. I also have observed that my flatscreen puts out a high pitch noise when on the inverter. I am wondering if the power from the inverter, since it is not a true sine wave is causing early failure of these items. Your thoughts ?

RE: External Generator use on Class A

UPDATE: Yesterday I turned on the Yamaha in the morning, 8am, and it ran until 4:30 PM when it ran out of gas. When I refilled it, it had used only 1.5 gallans of gas. So I was able to power my TV, sat receiver, fridge, computers (2) for 8.5 hours. This is fantastic ! JCat

External Generator use on Class A

I have a 2004 Mandalay with a 7500W onan genny. I have purchased a yamaha 2000w portable genny and wanted to use it connected as an external power source connected to my shore power cord. The plan was to be more energy efficient as I only need to power my TV, sat receiver and a few outlets for computers. There was a really good article in FMCA that seemed to show that this will work if config'd correctly. I hooked it up and the RV EXPLODED INTO A MILLION PIECES ! Just kidding, thought my story was getting boring. The Yamaha revved up to accomodate the load and then went into overload. I then changed my Xantrax to invert mode and tried again, same result. The Xantrax once it receives the added power, goes into charge mode for the house batteries and this is too much for the little 2000w genny so it overloads. Is there a way to stop the battery charge and just allow the yamaha to power the rv like when I am using the inverter ?

New CA Emissions law for Diesel's

I have a friend who owns a trucking company in CA and has been getting updates on new emissions standards for diesel engines. The idiots are proposing new laws that would be retro-active for all diesel engines that would require a conversion to the "blue fluid" for all trucks and RV's, even if they are not registered in CA. They would fine any Diesel truck or RV that enters the state that has not had the conversion kit applied. Unreal ! Keep a look out for news on this going forward and lets see if we can kill this nonsense before it gets wings.
