I'm going to start a new thread on the Newmar Owner's forum but thought I'd throw it out here first. Anyone run into a dinette table that would not turn into a bed? The smallish U-shaped dinette in our Allstar appears to be designed to be a bed (as I would expect) as there's a lip along the seating that would support the table when converted. However, when we take the table top off the legs and attempt to put it in place, it's about 4" too short at the sides to reach the lip. Could this unit originally come with a separate piece of plywood or something to serve as the bed support? I'm thinking I may just have to cut a piece of plywood for the job, but was curious as to whether anyone had encountered anything like that. I've glanced through the manual, but it has no specifics on this dinette, just a generic "table can convert into a bed" instruction set....

You would most likely get the answer in forum but the table may have been to big for someone to sit comfortably and they had it shortened because they did not need for sleeping.
There are some ATME in forum that can give you the answer or a call to Newmar may give the real answer.
If you have the lip all around the setting area the table top should fit.

Nice looking rig. You obviously needed more sleeping space than a conventional MH of this class offers. Good luck and enjoy your new rig!

Joe, Can't help you with the dinette configuration. Ours came with a round table and 4 chairs. I posted a couple of pics below.

Welcome

I have one of the 5 allstar 4159's that Newmar made. Our family has enjoyed it for 4 years and we are still very happy with it. I hope you enjoy yours as much as we do ours. Let me know if you have any questions, we may be having the same issues. By the way, our dinette does t make a bed either. I plan on having a new table top made that will reach the supports if I ever need the extra bed.

Hi jpgrocery! Nice to meet another 4159 owner. I knew they were rare, but wasn't sure HOW rare.
It's been a perfect fit for my family, and the issues we're ironing out are mostly minor, like old coach and engine batteries, etc.
For the dinette bed, for now I just cut a piece of plywood to size and keep it behind the couch when I need to bring it along on a trip.
Right now, my biggest issue is the tankless water heater/heating system. do you have the precision twin temp jr? I don't really understand how the whole heating system part of it works, as there appear to be two heat options in the coach. haven't yet camped when I needed heat but I will in January. also can't figure out which way the lever needs to be in summer vs. winter mode, and the place that sold me the RV doesn't really seem to know either. do you know?
I also don't know why some things bypass the battery disconnect, causing battery drain if I don't fully disconnect the coach batteries. things like most of the TVs still pull power when battery is disconnected.
I know there are other things I don't quite understand or have the whole story on, but I only think of them when I am out using the coach.
thanks for any info you have.

Welcome to irv2 jpgrocery good to have you aboard.
In my signature below are links to many others for your Newmar.
If you post in forum you will get answers for your questions also.
We have other ATME owners there.
For Precision heater see if this helps for now.
This will help you also.---Here is another training PDF.

You have to come to forum so I do not have to chase you around the forums makes it easier.

Precision Temp

The Precision Temp system has been my biggest headache on the coach. I think you will find that to be true for most folks that have it. I have had several major issues since we purchased the coach, and in fact it is in the shop right now having the coolant tank replaced due to a pinhole in it. One of the most frustrating was when the exhaust fan went out which activated a safety feature that shuts off the gas portion of the unit. We would have marginally warm water and no heat. After several trips to the shop where it was "fixed" I finally called Precision Temp and talked through what it was doing and they sent a new exhaust fan and all was well...for a while.

The best advice I can give you is to call Precision Temp. Their product is not good but they have been really pleasant on the phone and will take the time to work through issues that may arise. The system is very particular and must be babied or you will wind up with COLD showers at best!

Not having the coach here I am having a hard time remembering which direction to move the valve for winter/summer. I am supposed to pick it up in the next few weeks and I will dig in then.

The summer/winter valve on mine is still on summer so I will take a picture of it and post it here so you can see in which direction it should be turned. Thanks for mentioning it. I need to change it to winter now. The manual with pictures that 007 posted should also help.

Here is the "winter" valve setting for the Precision Temp Hydronic Unit.

Keep warm!
