    do you know what the part is? From Kim at NIRVC

    Your coach is one of the ones that still needs a pro Dash AC. There is currently no expected date of when those will arrive to Newmar. There is a possibility that if they don’t arrive by December 15 that the coach will not ship until after the first of the year.

    thank you

    Question about AA sir,
    Have you ever left your coach stationary for several weeks after leveling with Air level and no jacks? If so, does it tax the system, especially if the system isn’t reasonably air tight (my front right bag will deflate in about 3-4 days if parked at ride height).
    I usually use the jacks if I’m going to be parked for more than 4-5 days. I’m just curious about leaving the AA leveling system on for long periods.

    Hey Ronnie, question about Active Air, I have an appointment for August 2020, Ashley send me the paperwork and all, does reprogramming the transmission voids my Transmission warranty? do the Dutch stars have high capacity air tanks as they request?

My coach was taken into the dealer for warranty repairs of a few small items on Tuesday April 23. Friday I went to pickup the coach as it was supposed to be fixed. When the tech drove it around front, the buzzer for jack down was sounding, and the coach air bag on front left was empty.

No problem I thought, just hit reset. I did this, air went into all the bags normally, and all was well. I hooked up the toad, and left the dealership. I was ½ mile down the road, and alarms went off...

I got to put some real mileage on the coach. I did the drive home from Nappanee, IN to Fort Worth, TX by myself, and really got to enjoy the handling of the coach. With Comfort Steer, and Active Air, there was absolutely no stress passing semi’s or with wind.
The real beauty of the air leveling was when I got to pull into a parking spot where I could run out a slide. The air level was fast, I ran out the full wall slide, and slept for a few hours. Put it back in, and on my way.

The install started at 7:00am on Wednesday in Davenport, IA at Interstate power. There the Allison transmission needed to be coded to send a signal when road speed hit approx 8 MPH. This signal is used by the new computer HWH installs. This process took all of 10 minutes, and I made the short drive to HWH headquarters in Moscow, IA.
My plan was to get the Air leveling system, which allows leveling the coach using either Air or Hydraulic, one or the other, not both. Air leveling has a lot...

I am going to describe my media setup. I had this system working in my previous RV (2008 Fleetwood Discovery 40x), but was not as robust as I am describing. The features streaming features where all available, but the source selection was not. Since the Fleetwood was a RF signal, I was limited in how I could wire it. I setup a dedicated media server that ran off the middle television, and did the wireless streaming. Now that I have my 2013 Newmar Dutchstar, there is a lot of improvement. Below I...
