Default Detroit 60 wouldn't fire

When we first got our 2001 Newell, our first RV in fact,we took it on a five week, 5,000 mile "Grand Circle" trip with stops in: Amarillo; Santa Fe; Colorado Springs; Rock Springs, Wyoming; Park City, Utah; Boise, Idaho; Bend, Oregon; Newport, Oregon; Richland, Washington; Coeur d'Alene, Idaho; Bigfork, Montana; Pocatello, Idaho; Grand Junction, Colorado; Breckenridge, Colorado; Oakley, Kansas and HOME in OKC.

We knew virtually nothing about our Newell. Early on one of our two bedroom slides wouldn't move out, so we left it in. Another time a slide's locking pins wouldn't engage, Newell said we'd be fine and we were.

After completing most of our 5,000 mile "novice" trip & crossing much of Colorado on I-70 & parking at Tiger Run in Breckinridge for a planned four day stay, our Detroit 60 wouldn't fire. We were stranded but exactly where we wanted to be. The engine would crank, but no smoke although fuel was visible in the filter.

Newell said it was probably the engine crank position sensors and under warranty sent a tech 250 miles from Denver who replaced them. He said you always changed out both & there was no rhyme or reason (miles or time) to their failure. I always carry a spare set now.
