Took our Newmar Mtn Aire DP in for a recall repair to Cummins Cumberland this morning. Earlier in the week I had a conference call with Spartan and one of Cummins Cumberland's service rep's. I got there 10 minutes after they opened in hopes to get a the "head of the line" since it's "first come, first served". They don't take appointments. Anyway, I had anticipated it taking a little more time than the hour Spartan had suggested in the recall notice. I was there all day. Got home around 6 PM after leaving the coach there overnight. Some unexpected problems arose, so they say, with some electrical component connections. I was somewhat miffed about the whole experience. I get home and the realtor wants to show the house tomorrow afternoon. The house is torn all to pieces due to the auctioneers getting all our personal property in order for next week's sale. Talk about a full plate!!!
Just got a call from Carl at Cummins Cumberland as I was typing this post. The coach is ready -- it's 8 PM now. It's too late for another beer or two or three, ain't it????

Glad to hear they got your coach corrected now. I'm sure you thought it would drag into another day.

Must admit, we have suffered through recalls and encountered problems at Service Center doing the work.
Our Service Tech could never find the "software" for updates! Still waiting...ugh!
Hang in there and be glad it its all taken care of! Enjoy your coach

Hi Dana, Glad to hear you got it taken care of. You're going to like the MADP 4304. It's a real nice coach. You're going to like the hydronic heat too. That's a definite must in our next coach. If you want to be shown as a member of the Newmar Owner's forum, let me know and I'll change your title. Enjoy.

Thanks Cruzer, I would appreciate the change in the title . As for the MADP 4304, we're really happy with it . The dealer had all the tires balanced before I picked up the coach. I took it for a Spartan recall this past week and drive it in a very hard, blinding rain along I-40 outside of Knoxville and it was amazing how well it handled . The coach rides as if I were floating on a cloud.

OK, I changed your title. Being in your new MADP tag axle coach you probably were floating on a cloud. It'll take some time before the euphoria goes away but don't worry - it's a good feeling.

And, at the end of the day, the beer will taste the same in the 4304 as a 42QDP.

NO...I'm still at the house helping the auction company workers to get all our "stuff" set up for Saturday. We still have furniture to tag and move. All the farm equipment is lined up and tagged. The DW and I never knew we had so much "stuff". It'll be 97% gone by Saturday afternoon. I'm ready for a Doquis XXX or a Killian's. I'd even settle for some micro brewery ale...all seven or ten different brews. Dang...I'm gone...BEER RUN!!!!
