I have found out that you can get "specials", parts, etc. while at the factory. I have already been turned onto a door mounted outside shower, step covers, and spare wiper blades and bulbs.

I am interested in anyone's ideas for items that might not be widely known but, available at the factory.

Oh yeah, I also bought an additional pantry slide out drawer.

Scott, here are at least two not so known or popular buys in the part store.

1) The service tool (switch box with indicators and connection cable) to operate any slide or lock by-passing all safeties etc. Cost about $135

2) Matching Spartan tag hub. Tag hub identical to drive axle. If you look at your tag and drive axle hubs, you will notice the tag is shorter than that of the drive hub. Cost about $123 ea.

There are a couple anyway.

Nice signature Dirk!!

Not sure you know this,but there are a bazillion little bins in the parts department where they have stuff...Usually not anything earth shattering,but there usually are usually shelves,dividers,bulbs,plugs and all kinds of other stuff...
Jeannie is the gal there and she's really nice!

Louise is the lady that will "check you in" when you arrive at the service office in the morning...She's a little hard to get to know but she's really nice once you figure her out.

I'll be down the street a ways,but will PM you my cell number...I'll probablt stay down there on the hard surface that week and not down where the parts and service building is.
My Essex was toast when I left there after parking on that dirt lot...
Shouldn't need to dump with just me there...

Bulbs are also a good item to buy,if they're not too expensive....If Newmar's tariff is too much I think Lug_Nut had a source for them.

Scott,
What ever you need and have not found anywhere else, that's what you buy.
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI>rubber corners for the lower corners of your slides (the gouges in your back will not be so deep)
<LI>water filter(s)
<LI>bulbs that have burned out (ex. exterior porch light)
<LI>anode rod if your HWH has one
<LI>key blanks (this is important) The wife has a seperate set of keys (door (2), ignition, basement doors and fuel filler caps lock).
<LI>special wrenches that your coach may need
<LI>etc.[/list]I know some of these items can be purchase for less $s at OEM vendors. For me, there is a value in convenience.

I found the 6 inch round air return filters for my Dutch Star in the bins. My new rig uses the same filters. I guess that will be my justification to return to Nappanee.

Buy and extra mud flap.

Eventually, you'll need it (the voice of experience) http://irv2.infopop.cc/groupee_commo...icon_frown.gif

If you have the long windshield wipers (I think 32"), I would get a set while there if you don't already have a spare set. They are really hard to find and you never know when you will need one in a bind. We carry a spare set in the storage area.

rebelsbeach 02-01-2007 02:34 PM

Leaving Saturday for my appointment on Monday at the factory,will take it easy up and across and arrive in Nappanee early Sunday afternoon.

I'm planning on staying in the Amish Acres Inn all week,in order that I can allow the guys uninterrupted access to the coach.
I'm thinking that it'd be easier for them to leave something undone at the days end in order to address it the next morning and maybe if they don't have to "button up" the coach every day that may save some time...
I've spoken to Jason and let him know my plans..

Safe travels Bob you may just miss bad weather more south of us. http://irv2.infopop.cc/images/newbluesweatdrop.gif

rebelsbeach 02-01-2007 03:09 PM

That's really what concerns me Roger...

I have to travel out of VA and over through PA and Ohio to get to Indiana which means I'm going over mountains somewhere at some point.

I'm thinking the route we take to western PA is going to be the best "treated" route....
I'll catch the PA T-pike at Breezewood and take it all the way to 80...

Ya' know, some of us do live North of the Mason Dixon in Winter. Reading this, you'd think Bob was driving into the very heart of the Antarctic.

Living here on a small mountain (or large hill) outside of Buffalo, I have had to clear snow every day for the past week. Twice yesterday.

Heck, I'm excited to be traveling to the Spartan on Sunday and Newmar on Tuesday. It'll be nice to get South for awhile.

I'll also be alone w/my new coach and verizon broadband card for some quality time.

It just occured to me that I really do need to get a life.
