On the Road in the Northwest

Hi IRV2. Just joined up. An RV mechanic told me a couple of months ago this is the place to be.

We are in washington right now. Just hit the road with my wife and four kids! We have owned our 38' Mountain Aire for a couple of months now. In the process of renovating it. Repainted the interior and redid the flooring already.

Right now trying to figure out how to find parts for this beast. In my two experiences so far regular auto parts stores come up with the wrong parts.

Excited to be on the road!

Welcome, this is the place to get info, it has been a Godsend for me. While Newmar does not have info on MH's our age, they have been very helpful in my obtaining things like replacing the mirror behind the stove top that was missing. (Yes, I'm one of those that wanted to return my MH to original condition) also I ordered filters that fit the ceiling vents from them.

When I needed info on why my MH Wouldn't start, Subford was able to walk me through diagnosing the problem (fuel pump).

Also, the DVD went out on Wednesday, it's generic info but was very useful for me.

Would love to see pictures of the changes you've made.

For sure. We have only had it a couple of months. Paint and floor redone so far. Plus fixing pots of stuff.

My wife didn't like all the mirrors. Most of them are gone now. 😀

Will post pics sometime. Right now wrestling with the ac compressor and the shift cable. Both of which are discontinued parts. Found replacements though.

Depending just where in the NW you are, I can recommend a very good RV Maintenance shop in Sedro-Woolley, JR's RV Repair. Rather scruffy-looking place, but that's because they put their money in quality people rather than fancy buildings.

No connection except for being a happy customer when we had our MH.

Brazels in Chehalis, Washington. They are a great source of information.

Hi isaacwhiting and welcome to the RV lifestyle.

I have a 2005, 43 ft Mountain Aire diesel pusher with a Spartan MM chassis but not knowing what year your rig is, what chassis is riding on and if it's gas or diesel would have a bearing.

The first things is, are you talking coach or chassis parts or both. Each have very different supply channels and the split between the two can sometimes be confusing.

The first sources are your chassis supplier and Newmar - make sure your coach is registered with both and that neither has any open recall notices on your rig.

For coach parts, don't rule out going direct to Newmar or at least checking their prices. Some items can only come from them for me, they have been great to deal with. Last year I had a broken entry door handle which I figured would be a Newmar only part. While placing an order for the handle and some other items their parts guy told me that the handle was a warranty item and they replaced it free of charge for my 10 year old rig, not with its third owner.

For chassis parts, must will be available through truck parts suppliers that service that make of chassis.
