Because we live in our Newmar permanently on our nursery and never take it on the road this has thrown up one or two possible problems the main one being that I am unable to start the engine with the slide out in the out position and the jacks down. Obviously this isnt an ideal situation as a big petrol engine needs to be started occasionally to lubricate things and to keep the anti freeze upto strength It also needs to be pumped round once introduced. Our van is getting on now and we are quite comfortable in it and dont envisage moving out of it in the forseeable future and certainly dont need to drive it anywhere as we have our Bessacarr for that which is much more economical to run. My question is, just for peace of mind really in case I ever sell it, can the engine be started by bypassing the switches that are obviously stopping the ignition from working whilst the slide and jacks are out and how do I bypass these switches and where are they? We have so much extra furniture & junk plus televisions etc in the way that I just cant face moving it all say once a fortnight to turn the engine over. Not being very mechanically minded what will happen if I dont turn the engine over, will it seize up and die :Sad: I have partly resigned myself to accepting that this once very expensive and luxurious beast, owned originally by Motorcycle GP ace Karl Fogarty will end its days here with only 15000 miles on the clock. It would still be nice to hear its engine running occasionally. I still havent sussed out how to start the generator on it. Any help gratefully received.
