RE: Spartan Chassis' 1995-2003 engine instruments check this guys out as they may have one and can or answer your questions My Coach is a 2001 Newmar Dutch Star, diesel pusher on a Spartan Chassis. Specific model is DSDP 3891. My concern is the multiplexing box that manages all of the engine instruments. Should it fail, all engine instruments fail. Spartan 'obsoleted' this box a number of years ago and there is no alternative part that can be used. Spartan tells me this particular box was used from 1995 to 2003 on the chassis' they provided to RV manufacturers. The Spartan Part# is 0920-NN1-013 and the Stewart Warner part# is 988H-1. My question is "has anyone been faced with the failure of this box and what was the resolution?" Thanks for any insights/thoughts. Doug [email protected]

RE: Question for Class A owners.

Do not mean to steal the thread but putting the battery in the trunk is an old hot rod trick to get better front to rear balance. Have you worked on a new automobile recently??? I don't mean to be flippant but the new automobiles have so much stuff under the hood that it is impossible to see the engine without removing a lot of items. On both my Chevy and Chrysler, the space under the hood is so cramped that both of them have the battery in the trunk because there is no room under the hood in the engine compartment. Motor homes are cramped for some repairs, and easy for others. If you go to a shop that specializes in RV, they will take care of you. Many medium and large truck shops will work on RV's. Motor homes have their own unique challenges, but so do the new vehicles that are on the road. The fact is that any problem can be taken care of. Some issues just take a little longer. :B

RE: Extended Warranty fir Class A

Not a warranty but is a service contract. Ask for a list of what is NOT COVERED. IF a non covered part is the problem then nothing is covered

RE: The Wife Says We Are Keeping Our '89

Listen to the wife. Happy wife Happy life. Our HR is now 30 years old and we decided to start looking for something newer with a slide and a basement. We started looking at the early 2000's. Our '89 HR has sleeping for 6, seating for 10, It can seat 6 people for a meal at 2 different tables. It has a 4-burner stove, oven and space for an extra refrigerator for drinks. We couldn't find anything with the basic amenities of what we have. The coaches we found look like they are for empty-nesters who don't like to cook and don't expect to go camping with their children and grandchildren. Am I right? Do we need to look newer? My wife says she hasn't found a single coach yet with what is important to her and we are keeping our '89!

RE: Toad wobble

My guess it was the rough uneven road conditions. Could be worn out struts or other worn front end parts. I would have the alignment checked. On return trip to Gig Harbor twice at low speeds we experienced a wobble severe enough to stop the coach in traffic to inspect. Found no indicators of what might cause this coach shaking wobble. Towing with Falcon tow bar 2016 Ford Edge. Have towed the same configuration for 6000 miles with no problems. Any suggestions as to what might cause this low speed wobble(10mph-20mph)max. Happened with rough uneven road conditions. Thanks for your suggestions, I will post my findings.

RE: Motor homes over the years

Well we purchased our first used 72 - 18 ft Brave in 1978 and it was trouble free the entire time we owned. in 82 we purchased a 78 - 24 Sightseer and again was trouble free. It had a 413 MOPAR engine with a Holly carb. which pulled like gang busters. In 1987 we purchased a 85-34 ft Cruise Air which had a few problems like the fan clutch went out once but again was trouble free. 1n 1999 we ordered a 99 - 34 ft Coachman Santara which was a disaster from the word go. The Ford chassis was not a problem but the box built by Coachman had issues, not the least was the slide rollers allowed the slide to cut the flooring. In late 2001 we ordered a 2002 DSDP and received delivery in March 02. Was trouble free with minor issue which we sold in 2018. So there you have our 40 year history and we are now moterhomeless. Compared to some of you I am a fairly new in the motor home world. My first motor home I took delivery 18 years ago on May 16, 2001. Then in Dec. 2002 I took delivery of my first diesel, both being Nationals. Took off for the East coast without thought or worry shortly after delivery both times, no problems . Now I'm on my third, a Newmar Canyon Star since a year ago January and I follow forums and it is scary when you read about people's problems. Even the conversations on Open Road Forum has changed. Do you feel that the RV manufacturing is getting more sloppy or is it Government requirements that are the problem. Even with automobiles, I own 9 cars, 8 of those being General motors (6 are business cars) and am having problems that I have never experienced in the 37 years I have been in business.

RE: Class A-what year is it?

In NM are 6 of our MH were listed on the title as the year that the coach builder finished the coach as identified in there id number. As stated previously we received an MSO on the 2 new ones we purchased that we surrendered when we applied for the title. Yes, we made copies of the MSO.

RE: Extended warranties

It is not an extended warranty but a service contract. Ask for a list of everything that is not covered. Some state that if a no covered part damages a cover part then there is no coverage.

RE: Gee,No More Winnebago/Itasca Elipse/Tour/GrandTour/ElpsUltra

They were making the Brave, Indian, and a few other ones when we starting RVing. The names come and go. Now Ford is talking about making a Mustang SUV. Some of these names changes make little to no sense but to try to fool the unaware and uninformed. Need to do your due diligence before plunking down your $$ Wow, Winnebago/Itasca stopped making the Ellipse/Tour/Grand Tour, Ellipse Ultra. :?

RE: Re-engine a class A

Rather than new or crate engine. Look into used ones. COLAW inear Springfield, MO will quote a price on most anything.
