Needing Attention

The coach is roadworthy and can be driven away to its new home without any additional work being done on it. However, the following items are known to need attention to bring all the systems back into full operation. The coach is booked in to Newell for service and this page will be updated as items in the list are repaired.

As with any complex piece of equipment there may be other issues that arise as it is used.

  • Cabin A/C has a leak in the piping from the compressor that allows the refrigerant to escape. Needs fixing to bring the cabin A/C into operation.
  • Refrigerator needs service.
  • Generator needs a service.
  • Aquahot system needs a service.
  • Air actuated pocket door between bathroom and bedroom tends to stick.
  • A number of the air struts that support the open compartment doors need replacing.
  • Catch on the flap forward of the front left wheel needs re-fixing.
  • Water filter canisters and filter need replacing and water tank and piping should be sanitized.
  • Rear view camera and CRT monitor don’t work. Wiring still in place for a replacement, or change to a wireless system.
  • Smartire receiver works, but the batteries in the transmitters in the wheels have died so pressure indications are not reliable. If a TPMS is desired, unless replacement Smartire transmitters can be found, a replacement system would be recommended.
  • CB Radio doesn’t work.
  • Entry door sticks when heated, needs clearance increasing.
  • Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors need to be replaced.
  • Fire extinguishers need servicing or replacing.
  • Remote locking on most compartment doors doesn’t work. It’s never worked well and we have never bothered to use it. We don’t keep anything super valuable in the compartments and have never lost anything.
