RE: Water pressure regulator

Here's a place that sells them already made up for RV use.

RE: used Newmar Dutch star purchase

Newmar makes (and always has made) a quality coach, so you have a good foundation to start on. The rest depends on how it's been maintained and taken care of from the beginning.

RE: Oil Spots Removal

Try a little WD-40. It should dissolve the oil and won't hurt your paint. Then just wash off the WD-40 with some Windex or something similar.

RE: Hydraulic Fluid Question

If it has a side radiator, it may be the cooling fan motor as mentioned above. Mine was leaking fluid from the seal. I had to replace the motor. The motor alone was almost $1k.

RE: True or False?

A lot depends on what the quality of the unit was to begin with. I'd put my almost 10 year old Newmar up against some of the cheaper newer units. Poor quality coaches fall apart long before good quality coaches. Not saying anything about the quality of a Damon. Just saying you should concentrate on quality when looking for an older unit.

RE: Be Carefully Buying A Rental

I'd like to see what the black and gray water plumbing system looked like after that.

RE: '08 Alfa See Ya

I know nothing first hand about the Alphas. My question would be why is the resale value so low compared to other brands of the same model year? I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to figure that out.... As for the Alfa owner/lovers, if my little girl was the ugliest kid in the room, I'd still think she was pretty......... with all do respect but I think this is probably the worst response to a post I've ever read. first off, if "your little girl was the ugliest kid in the room" as a parent you should believe she was pretty, if as a parent you DIDNT tell her she was the prettiest, that would make you the WORST parent on the planet. a young girl NEEDS as much confidence as possible to make it to adulthood. an RV on the other hand doesn't have any feelings or fears of rejection. as for your analogy, I currently own a damon daybreak. I would not recommend this unit to my worst enemy. I own it outrite and HATE it. it is ugly and has given me 7 years of headache. I've loved every trip my family and I have been in it just don't like the unit. I still believe my daughter is pretty, get what I mean? No offense. Sounds like your mind is made up. Sorry, I was just trying to save you some grief. I hope you're handy with tools. And a course in fiberglass repair would be helpful too. Enjoy!

RE: '08 Alfa See Ya

I wouldn't pay $139k for a brand new Alfa. Sometimes you fall in love and don't realize your mistake until it's too late.

RE: RV Parks near Corpus Christi, TX

We will be staying in and around Corpus Christi in our fifth wheel for the next year because of my husband's job. We have stayed in a few RV parks in this area -- all have been nice with friendly people. The one thing my husband and I have both noticed is that almost all the RVers in the parks we've stayed in are white, middle-aged or older, and very conservative. We have nothing against any of them -- like I said, they've all been extremely nice. However, we would like to find an RV park or area where at least some of the residents are liberal, and we'd like a bit more diversity. Does anyone have any suggestions as to an area or RV park near Corpus Christi that fits the bill? you might want to camp closer to Washington DC Or California. Conservatives are the reason Texas is Texas............ If all those "conservatives" are so nice and friendly, what's the problem?

RE: Thinking of moving from 5th Wheel to Class A

If you're talking about a diesel pusher, I'd plan on spending at least $70k for something half way decent. That would be in the 10 year old range. A really nice coach in that area is going to be closer to $100 - $110k. I'd be sure and stay with the major brands - Winnebago, HR, Itasca, Allegro, Newmar, etc. Run from the Alfa's. You'll find them cheap, and there's a reason for that.

RE: Onan 6.5 dies unless I hold choke

Berryman's B12 (in the pour can) has always worked for me. It's a stronger solvent than Sea Foam and will dissolve any varnish.

RE: Onan genset, overheat after coolant change

Were you running it with the cover still off? If so, it will overheat because the fan will not push enough air through the radiator. If so, put it all back together and try again. I bet you'll be fine. I found this out the hard way myself....

RE: PowerTech Generators?

The standard equipment on my 05 Newmar Dutch Star was a 8.0 "Quiet Series" Powertech genny. The Onan QD was an option. I have the Onan, but I can't believe Newmar would put a second rate genny in any of their coaches. Since PT had a quiet series, there might have been lesser models that were not as quiet.

RE: Generator opil change

I wouldn't put a Fram filter on my lawnmower. Do a little research on Fram filters. (Just my opinion. Not trying to start a war here.) My gennie only holds 3 quarts, so an extra couple of dollars for synthetic in this case is worth the extra potential of the oil. But as opined by the Supertech users, any certified correct formula oil will suffice under recommended service intervals.

RE: Generator opil change

Just changed the oil in my diesel QD 7500 yesterday using Delo Synthetic 5W40 with a Bosch filter bought at AutoZone. Rotella, Delvac and Delo are for diesel engines so are probably not recommended for your gas unit. Seeing that your unit it gas, I'd use Mobil 1 synth at whatever viscosity Onan recommends.

RE: Part # for Newmar Inside Step Motor/linkage

This might be the cheapest route..

RE: We Love our Newmar

Even better, you can go to this link, put the last six digits of your VIN in the search window and it will pull up your coach and everything that was installed in it to find replacement parts.
