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!

RE: Lukeville crossing

If you miss the huge New and pretty obvious building and it’s three entrances there is always the Empalme Facility on 15D just South of San Carlos/ Guaymas and Empalme! The building on the right side of the Highway will help you out even though the Sign says simply ONLY SENORA !

RE: Shaw Satellite

Chuck ! You are cutting pretty fine getting your setup upgraded! The LNBF that is current is a Triple Satelitte,Quad output one! To Test your existing setup get things Refreshed by the folks who have you on their account! Then try to get Channel 988 which will tell you if your existing receiver is up to date! The newest LNB was introduced about four or five years ago so you might be good to go! If not you will need to not only get a new LNB ,but also to have Shaw do a service adjustment in order to make everything compatible! They are not allowed t to offer any service outside of Canada! BTW there is a 60 Cm and a 75 CM LNB it must match the actual Grey Dish !

RE: Looking for Recommendations for a Replacement Water Pump

One thing for sure check around for the best price and compare the exact same model number on the Pump as well as on the Box! Recently at the Arizona Marketplace in Yuma I found the exact same item for Three different prices at the Three Vendors of RV related merchandise! A Hint ....don’t buy from the First Vendor you come to! Shop them all and compare the items you need! My Pump cost Me $69.00 US + Tax I saved $40. But could have only saved $20.

RE: Mr Morro !

Thankyou! Coming back to the highway just retrace you’re steps! The on ramp isn’t clearly marked but is obvious and like many along Mexican roads quick ,short and kind of scary! Incidentally highway 15 D is in pretty good condition all the way to Mazatlan. There are a few rough patches in the right hand lane but when traffic is light you can easily switch lanes and or straddle the potholes! We made it down this far with no issues other than torrential Rain that made visibility poor!

RE: Mr Morro !

Just before you reach a Gusave there is an Exit on the right called Gusave /Sinaloa de Leyva! It runs parallel to 15D along side the elevated portion of the main highway. You reach a traffic light with a sign reading Playas las Glorias 42 Km. Follow that road for a few Km in the right hand lane. You will reach a traffic light and will notice beyond it that the road turns to dirt! Hang a right on pavement ( no signage) you will slowly enter an S turn and then will see a Playas las Glorias 38 Km ! Keep headed along that road which eventually comes to a T! Go left at the T and keep going until you reach the Boulevard de las Glorias ! Turn right and continue to the end of the bricks .Mr Morro is on the Left the gate will be open the sign is not visible from the road but the owner Tobo will meet you !

RE: The first fewDays !

Southern exit to the Main Highway is smooth all the way! Do watch for Topes However!and a couple of Tractors ! Mr Morro is the better destination for a two or three night stopover!

RE: The first fewDays !

They stopped us and said that we needed to follow them ! We have been here numerous times over the last 20+ years so did not need to be shown the way! I suspect that since there were 5 Rigs together they figured One of us would buy them a cervaisa!

The first fewDays !

So we arrived at the Nogales Mariposa border crossing on Wednesday morning after spending a night in Tucson! There was absolutely nobody paying any attention to the three of Us as we drove slowly through the Border area! We all had our passports ,Visitor Papers and TIP documents as well as our Insurance papers ready for inspection ,but not a single soul so much as waved at us! The highway 15 D was in very good shape this year and the By pass around Hermosillo is fantastic!! The signage is good so anyone who can read should have absolutely no problem getting on the right road! Many of the Toll booths were taken over by the locals so the toll cost has been pretty easy on the pocketbook. Fuel prices are as stupid here as they are in BC ! The Western Periferico around Navajoa was in excellant condition .apparently the Eastern one sucks! We were headed to Huatabampito so enjoyed the ease of access! We managed to pickup two more rigs while at a Totonaka! We were escorted from the Periferico around Huatabampo and all the way to our RV Park at Huatabampito by the State Police! That’s all for Today!
