Slide out Rollers on a 98 Dutch Star Diesel Pusher

Well since we are not going anywhere due to Covid 19 I finally got around to examining the Rollers under out Slide! As I suspected they were not in great shape this being a rig that’s Old enough to Vote! After consulting with the Newmar ....Newpar catalog I determined that the same rollers have been used for several years and that even though we have a 98 model the 99 and up a few years looked likened exactly fitted the size and description, so I phoned them up and ordered 5 New Rollers! The very friendly Parts Man at Newmar took my order and had them shipped the same day! Well that was a week ago and the box containing everything I had ordered arrived Today ! No mean feat as I live in Canada on Vancouver Island! So Since it was after Lunch and a long way till Supper I decided I would remove and Install these myself ! Now I’m 74 so not the most agile nor am I capable of leaping over tall buildings material! I applied a little Common Sense and Farmer Logic to the problem! Using a few scraps of 2X4 and a piece of 2X 6 as a lever I was able after putting the slide about a third of the way out To jack the leading edge up and braced about 5 inches off the interior Floor! The Rollers are secured to the underside of the slide out floor by two brackets ,called covers by Newmar! These stout Angle brackets are screwed in place with 4 - 1”Robertson #2 Screws that’s a square driver for my American Friends! Anyway it was necessary for me to remove one end of each roller by removing the screws ! I know that the rollers do have one end that pushes in so that the brackets don’t actually have to be removed but mine were in such terrible shape it was easier to just unscrew the bracket! I did these one at a time ,because I was by myself ! The first one took about 30 Minutes ,the others were out and in in about 10 minutes each ,so the entire process was a little over 2 Hours of my afternoon! The Rollers Cost 20.52 each with almost Free Shipping by UPS! I hat anyone doing this replace all Five Rollers ! Next job The Slide Seal and Top Awning Cover!

RE: Kwikee Step Motor Replacement

Grease is the best cure!

RE: Stairs not working

Biggest issue is and has been lack of grease! Silicone spray is just not enough for these things! If your rig is older than 1999 almost everyone in the business will tell you that there are no parts! If this happens to you try E Trailer ! They are easy to deal with and likely have the correct parts in stock! Grease them well !

RE: What will Canadians fo this fall/winter

We are still hoping that there will me a miracle,but we might win the lottery ! Seriously I don’t believe that we will be allowed to travel out of Country in our RV and The thought of climbing into an Aircraft to spend time in another Country with the same issues does not appeal!

RE: Will Your Next Tow Vehicle be Electric?

Maybe build highways featuring touch less Induction charging lanes along every on ramp or at 50 Mile intervals! Just drive and charge at the same time! Just thinking Trolley Buses and Slot Cars combined with current Induction charging pads! Possibly installed along Toll Roads would be the proper way to go! Not likely in my lifetime!
