  1. We also have the transfer switch and surge protector, it makes the exact same sound anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 minutes after plugging it in

    They don't even carry my size. I am undecided between an AREO 4040 / xl or Donaldson muffler and it is going to be considerably smaller and basically flow thru.

    I have a 1999 Dutch star. 4" end out nipple rotten need a new muffler. Getting confused-- should I go with a high flow or just a standard replacement, and where will I find one to fit the exact dimensions needed to back in the brackets welded to the frame?
  5. My outlets are all correct yellow yellow clear. it has something to do with the ground in the coach I truly believe. I am going to wait for a friend to come over that is more electrical savoy than I am. I bet I have a loose ground somewhere...
  6. Thank you, I am hearing from a lot of people it has something to do with a bad/ loose ground. Thank you all.
  7. Thank you Brett, you seem to be one knowledgeable guy.
  8. I still have the 1999 Dutch star... lol. Can I recharge the A/C for the front of the coach for the driver just like a car? 1 or 2 cans and is there a inlet port somewhere in the rear diesel eng. compartment?
  9. I went and bought a plug tester and the outlets are correct, 2 yellow. When I test the coach after it's plugged in all outlets in the coach now show two yellow one red, but the instrument does not give a troubleshoot for that readout. Someone told me it is a ground wire bleeding over... in the coach???
  10. Wow, thanks. That may be a very expensive fix...
  11. I have a 1999 Dutch Star with two roof Duo Therm's. They do not blow cold, cold air.I believe they need to be recharged Can I do this at home?
  12. Ok not very electrical... lol the shore line is from my garage and it may not be grounded right... I will try to run it from my house. We are about to go on our maiden trip and I have so much to learn. Do you believe it is from the shore line not from an internal issue? I will start the generator next and touch and see if i get that tingle... if not it makes me believe it's my cord and should not happen at the camp site. Thank you for your input on this holiday. Have a safe fourth of July, Frank from Mass.
  13. Hi Brett, first I removed the deep cycle Batt. but it was still charged. Second I was on 110 shore power, when I unplugged the shore power so did the current.
  14. After I filled the deep cycle batteries with distilled water yesterday, now the whole coach has a current running thru it!!!! Is it possible spilled water is under the battery and making a connection that way? Need help soon...
  15. Thank you. Did he have an attachment to the PPL? I really like the write up they did in FMCA mag. i just wish they would have included the TST as I did a lot of research and the one issue I had that the Safeguard had was the air pass thru on the sensor. Thank you again.
  16. Thank you, for this valuable information. hoping to hear from someone with the safeguard systems as well.
  17. Hello. We just bought a 2000 Newmar Dutch Star with 29,000 miles and will be taking our first trip in April to Disney. The previous owner talked several times about tire blowouts and the importance of tire maintenance. I am about to get a tire monitoring system for Christmas, I was all set to buy the TST 507 system with the user-friendly battery replacment. I then came across the Tire Safeguard system in this month's article with the ability to add air without removing the sensor. Does anyone have pros or cons on either system? I never realized there was so much about load weight, corner load, axle load. I am just about in overload myself just trying to figure out what I should use for tire pressure ... lol Thank you, Frank from Mass
  18. We have a 2000 Dutch Star single slide out. As we drive the bar used to push/pull the slide out rattles excessively loud. It's not loose where I can tighten it, it's just sloppy... any recommendations...
  19. Thank You Bill, first I do have a converter that has ( ANT. VIDEO. AUX.) one for incoming, one for TV=1, one for TV=2. when vid. pushed a dvd works, when ant. used and tv on ch4 it says CBS but no real signal from that station. i have all three buttons on ant. (I have tried a thousand combo's,,,LOL), I will go out and look for an on/off switch but I do not believe there is one. How do I see if the antenna is working?
  20. We have a 2000 Dutch Star 38'. Our issue is watching TV. We can't, but we can watch a DVD. I have three components, 1. Dystar flat screen TV. 2. A Magnavox DVD player. 3. A box that says ch3 or ch4. ch3 red led, ch4 green led light on front. DVD has to be on for everything to come on, TV is set to to ch4, on small box ch4 green led light is on. I was told to change the channel thru that small box w remote. Antenna is up, I went to a high spot BJ's parking lot in Auburn Mass. Static on ch4 and no signal bar on everything else ...
