I will have Midway do all of the roof items so that it is sealed properly. I will be doing the rest myself.

Roof items include installing the wifi and cellular hardware I will provide, the vents, and the maxxair.

I will also have them do the oasis loop.

You plan to install the BMK and then swap the ARC. Plan to sell the removed remote inverter?

Would Midway do the install.

The inverter is not replaced, just the controller up front. i did this on my '13 DSDP ( see this post: Feb 2013 Build Date---REDBARON73 DSDP)


My plan is to remove the BMK from the 13 along with the heavy duty cables I had made and reinstall it on the 19. I have the original controller that I will re-install, so this is one of those 0 cost upgrades (won't be many of them)

I am sure they would. Since this is the area that I like to play with, I won't have them do it. I did try to get the factory to install it in 13, and that was not approved.

Crazy as it turns out I had this link book marked! Do you think the issues you had with the compatibility with the PCS will be a none issue or still an issue going forward?

Thanks for all your help already.

I know for a fact that the new firmware has been applied. This includes the ventana models that have EMS as well. There should be no issues with the install.

Very nice! We wrestled between the 4362 and 4369 as well. We were able to get a special to get and additional 5" of width added to the pantry on the 4362. All in all, we had about 15 specials and got 14 of them. We worked with Michelle Howard. Chad at Midway was a pleasure to work with. Now it's the waiting

Redbaron, Great info. A few questions.

It appears that you are trading in your '13. Did you negotiate a price that will be honored by Midway 4 months later? Will you drop off the coach on the way to FPU? Trying to understand the logistics since that is what we would like to do.
Did you have to pick from 2019 colors or could you pick from 2018 colors?
What is the Oasis loop? Havent heard of that.
Thanks
David

Well done for sure. A few questions for you.

1: Is Newmar installing Active Air and do you have experience driving a coach with it?

2: What is the Oasis Loop you are adding?

3: Is the TST installed internally or is it attached to the valve stem as mine are attached to the stem?

Keep us posted and excellent coach choice
