    Hi Paul; Are you in the market for used OEM mirrors? is parting out a 1999 Ultimate Freedom that had an engine fire.
    I expect they will be expensive; calling is best vs internet.

    You had this post on 5/5/2010:

    We have had an occasional hard start issue with our 350 ISC since new now has 50k miles on it. It can happen when the engine is hot or cold. It will simply turn over with no indication it is trying to start. If I turn the key off and on several times and then try again, it has always started right up. I have had Cummins places check for codes, etc and they have never found anything.

    I am having the same problem. We have a 2003 39 Newmar Dutchstar with a Spartan chassis and an 350 ISC Cummins engine with 106K miles. Our problem just started. Were you able to resolve your issue?

    Thanks for your help.

    Thank you for your reply. It is a real shame that Norcold have not been at all interested as this appears to be a re-occurring problem and not just one that you and I have had. We are still in discussion with Thetford (Norcold) in the UK but limited response so far. If all else fails we will have to do as you have done, which is sound advice as we had not thought of doing this. Thank you so much for your reply, it is greatly appreciated. regards

    Hello AFChap, sometime ago you posted an issue with your Norcold Refridgerator, where the door contact inside the left hand door had overheated and discoloured the plastic sourrounding it. I wonder if you can help me with a solution to this problem as we are now experiencing the same issue. We have a Monaco Knight, and we are based in the UK where the engineers do not seem to have come across this problem. Your help would be greatfully received. regards Alan.

    AFchap/Paul: Do you still have the motor for your one-touch carefree awning. Mine failed a couple of weeks ago and I can't find a replacement. From the posts I've seen on escapes I believe my motor is the same. Number is PE26158Q. I will pay you a reasonable price and will pay shipping costs. I understood you were recently in Austin. Are you still near there?

    Just a note of thanks for all your post. Last Feb while in FL we traided our 1999 Advinturer for a 2003 Freedom.. Have not looked back. What a coach.. Today I was doing a sirch for BIRD.. Wasn't sure we had one.. Up comes one of you post.. If you got one we got one.. Thanks..

    We should be on the road now, but wating on a surgery.. then off to FL then out to CA..

    Enjoy your FREEDOM.. as we do..

    Hey Paul,
    I think you may have a typo in the web link in your signature .... seems like it may be missing the "s".... that is if it's supposed to be "".

    Do you have a website? I was wondering where you are now and to see if our paths will cross. I'm near Orlando now and will be wondering up the east to PA and then over to Iowa for the GNR.

    Take care,
