  1. Thanks everybody for the help. I will contact freightliner later today. I called newmar and they indicated the recall with replacement harness should fix problem. I will advise group when problem is solved.
  2. Yes freightliner chassis.
  3. All wiring looks factory including plug to headlights. Lamps are halogen and I have swapped lamp from side not working to opposite headlight and works fine. Lights that work obviously have power at connector and those that are not working don't. All fuses I can find test good. Thanks for the ideas.
  4. Hi gang, just bought a used 2014 newmar dutchstar. I have a interesting problem. On drivers side the daytime running light which is also the low beam works. The drivers side high beam has no power and all fuses have checked out good. On the passenger side it's the exact opposite! No daytime or low beam just high beam. No power and all fuses checked out good. Also only one fog light is working. There is a factory recall on the headlight harness to fix having both high and low beam on at same time on high beam. Thanks carl 2014 Newman dutchstar 4364 17,000 miles
  5. Yes I drove one Monday at general rv in Tampa. Drove fine and no dash rattles. Front axle does seem to small. My tradition scaled out at Spartan at 12770 front 19680 rear.
  6. Was looking at a 2015 American revolution at dealer and saw a discovery LXE. I wasn't familiar with this discovery model. Check out one of there brochures. Coach has all the right stuff. 8.9 ISL, 3000 mh allision transmission, one piece fiberglass roof, 3 a/c, truma tankless hot water, girard power patio awning e.t.c. Wood work inside was beautiful and fit and finish was solid. I thought the build sheet was for a higher end coach not a lowly discovery. I am told fleetwood wants to make this there flagship of their line. Being a American coach owner I was surprised to see so much coach for the money. They probably would have been better off using a different name and get away from the discovery badge. Carl 2004 American tradition 40w

    I agree!! one of my neighbors 2015 phaeton has the ceiling sagging! I guess it's known in that year to happen and it's going to cost a bundle to remove vinyl ceiling and at new supports to roof. Another guy in the park had his carefree patio awning that looks like a girard style fail at the knuckles were it attaches to awning cartridge to coach. Scratched paint but tiffin is sending out new and improved parts for awning. 2018 next to me has sloppy fit and finish I couldn't believe. I think cranking out 13 a day is starting to cut into there famous quality.
  9. Wayne77590, will do I was on there website this morning using there dealer locator. Just was checking to see if anybody recommended anyone in particular were they had a great experience in Florida. were we are snowbirds. Thanks for the reply.
  10. Manholt, I like to research and to my homework before so I can plan to get things done in a reasonable time frame. 1

  12. Hi gang, looking at a new 2018 discovery lxe. Any recommendations in florida for installation of SMI. My car already has SMI installed I just need service line added to new coach Carl 2004 American tradition

    Manholt , I was concerned that fleetwood is building a 41ft bath and half coach and possibly cutting it close on tire load vs axle load. Manufacturers have been known to cut it close in the name of the almighty dollar. My neighbor has a new tiffin phaeton which is comparable to the discovery lxe and they come with 275/80r22.5 adding a little insurance. Thank you for taking the time to reply.

  14. Own a 2004 American tradition if using fob actuators can break, door harness on hinge side can have broken wires. I use key to lock door and leave one window unlocked in case I need a ladder to get in. The real problem never addressed by the manufacturer is when lock fails and you can't get out!!

  15. Looking at a American coach and salesman said they are having trouble with warranty claims with sleep # warranting bed. Especially at high altitude they are failing Carl 2004 American tradition
