Smile New to motor homes

We have just purchases a 2000 Dutch Star Newmar and are getting ready to travel. This is our first coach and we know nothing but are having fun learning. Does anyone know how much oil a diesel Cumming engine holds and where to find the radiator? Were old and new to coaching and are willing learners :thanx:

The radiator is probably across the back wall of the engine compartment, where there's a fairly big grill to the outside. There's a chance it's a side rad configuration, but I'm not sure they were doing them in 2000.

I'm not a DP guy, unfortunately.

I believe all diesel Dutch Stars have the benefit of a side radiator. You'll be glad it does. It will be in the rear drivers side of the coach behind the louvered panels

Can't help w/ the Cummins.

Congratulations on the coach. They are great rigs and you'll hopefully have the same good luck and fun times we've had with ours.

Glad you're aboard. Contact Cummins at 800-343-7357 with your engine serial number and they will be able to help with the engine question. I checked the brochure for your coach and it appears to be a side radiator. Here's the link to that brochure. Enjoy your adventures and be safe.

Here is a thread on that very subject...but not on the radiator.

Google is your friend!

I use Delo 15w-40 in our ISC, others use Shell Rotella. Any of the brand name oils will do just fine.
If you have a Cummins engine you also have a Spartan chassis with IFS and side radiator.
In our 2000 DSDP we had the Freightliner chassis, CAT 300 hp 3126 and beam axle. And that was the reason for upgrading to the 2002 along with a different floor plan!

We wanted to check and see if it needed any antifreeze
