Welcome Richard,

Hope to see you down the road......Oopps forgot this is Texas...Some loooooong roads here... Roll Eyes

Anyway, maybe you could make it to the Texas Bus Roundup next year, we just had one about one month ago. Would have been great to have met you then.

Have fun and Be Safe,

Thanks for the very warm welcome. I look forward to meeting some of you down the road.

And to the Aggie question, Nope, I went to another cow college, Clemson.

And to Bob in Saginaw, we'll have to get together soon and compare notes.

Richard,

Euro spec lights are far far superior.  I didn't think you could purchase them in the US.  How did you do that and where?

Thanks,

John

Welcome Richard!
BTW Newell coach is grand daddy of all motorhome industries and high tech. They are the oldest and the first (?) producer of manufacture motorhome. Also you have the state of art engine & trans.

About Bob in Saginaw, Michigan....that is only 30 miles north of my dad's farm and my early life  homestead.

Wow...what a small world...LOL.

Keep us posted of anything about coach and helping us power transplanter that changing toward a state of art engine & trans as far as performance. Yours is factory designed motor package for motorhome purpose.

Again Welcome!

FWIW

I sourced the Euro lights from http://www.danielsternlighting.com/

It was the best money I have spent on auto toys. No joke. Those puppies light up the road like daytime, and I have never been flashed by oncoming.

You can see the before and after pics at http://www.newellclassic.com/forum/showthread.php?t=785 I set the camera on manual, and used the same settings, so no trick photography here.

At a bare minimum, relays and 12g wire are a must. I found that I was only getting about 11.8 at the lights when using the stock circuit. With relays and heavy wire, I get 13.6.
