Air Pressure Gauge

Anyone know a place to get a rear air pressure guage with alarm for a 2000 Dutch Star DP besides Spartan?

Hi and welcome to iRV2.
Gauge and alarm should be seperate items, at least on Freightliner they are.
What problems are you having?

Hi wrb7636,
Welcome to iRV2 and the Newmar Owners Forum. If you can get a number off the current part, enter it into Google. Many times that is all one needs to do to bring up choices for replacement.

The gauge is not working. It is stuck at mid scale. I googled in the part number but did not have any luck there. I am going to check on who made it. Then check with them. Thanks for your responses.

Here is what I found out so far.

The guage is no longer made by Stewart Warner.

There is a replacement gauge but it does not have the alarm feature.

Spartan has 6 of these gauges remaing in stock. They want $212.01 for the gauge. The replacement gauge is $59.95.

I am not sure about the connector on the back so I am not sure how it will install. I am waiting for a Stewart Warner distributor in Houston who is trying to find me a compatible gauge. I may end up buying the original equipment gauge just to simplify the installation if I can figure out the locking mechanism on the plug to the back of the gauge.

Thanks for all replies.

Not a Bad Guage

Update, I was able to find the sending units to the air gauges due to another post on the site. I was able to swithch the connectors on the back of the sending units and found that the sending unit was bad and not the gauge. I have ordered a new sending unit form Spartan, probably got ripped off for that, but I was tried of dealing with the problem and the sending unit was $100 vs $211 for the gauge.

Sending units on my 2000 DSDP are located under the coach under the drivers seat. Do not have to move out the generator out to get to them. Very easy to get too. Never have figured out how to release the connectors on the back of the gauge. Maybe on day I will figure it out.
