The latest year parts list we have is for 1998 models. It's available on the club website (not the Forum). Select Technical, Coach Assist, Brochures for almost All Beaver Coaches, Safari Motorcoach Corporation (1994-2001). Scroll down a bit and you will find parts lists.
Another and maybe faster option would be to call the parts dept at Beaver Coach Sales, or Hendersons Line Up. Both in OR.
Technical Support / Magnum Chassis Parts

2001 Beaver Marquis Jasper, 64k miles, C-12 Cat, Allison 4000.

I’m guessing this has been asked before but can’t seem to locate it. My apologies if this has been asked/answered a gazillion times. I’d like to find a Magnum chassis parts diagram, in whole or part. The current need is for a front stabilizer arm or bushings. I’m not sure if that’s the correct name, the rod that runs between the sides of the chassis, just behind the steering crossmember. Recently the bracket that holds this arm on passengers side broke off while on a trip. It looked like it had been repaired before and by someone who didn’t really know how to weld!  :-\ Locating parts on a Saturday afternoon wasn’t going to happen so settled for welding the bracket back on and dealing with the poor handling till we get home.

Which brings me to my question. How does one find part numbers for all of these chassis components? If it was a Freightliner I could at least find a part number and start sourcing the part. The front bushing on this arm are bad and according to the tech, all the suspension bushings in front are worn out. Even before this happened the ride is harsh and steering loose. I had it in for a front end alignment which helped some but now feels worse than ever.  I’m new to the RV thing and Beavers in particular.

So, any keywords to search for, links to threads, or an actual part’s diagram and/or source would be extremely appreciated. I’ve read how you all really value the ride and durability of these rigs which is why we jumped on it, but after this my bride is starting to question my judgment.  :(  Thanks! Pete

As David stated there are drains that run out just ahead of the passenger side rear tires one of them is the drain for the fridge if your fridge is defrosting melting ice off the cooling fins inside the water drains out to the rear of the fridge where it is connected to a pex pipe which takes it to the rear wheel wheel area.

First thought:  Our coach has three roof AC/heat pumps.  Each unit has a condensation drain tube built into the ceiling and sidewall where it exits the coach just above the roadway.  If your ACs are running in humid conditions, then these drain tubes will drain away condensation created in the roof ACs.

Passenger side about 2 feet in Infront of the rear tires there is a pipe coming down that just started to drip water. I tried to download a picture, but it would not allow me to do so. I had a full tank of water and the coach leans toward the rear could this be water overflow for the freshwater tank.?

Thanks for the pictures! Seems odd they place my (our unit was built in 2007 - titled and sold in 2008) pump in a different location. By the way was this information in your owner's manual?

Unfortunately, there isn't much clearance under the generator bay. My try to drive up on some wood blocks. 

Thanks again,

On my 2002 Marquis the two screws remove the lamp which is replaced from the inside.  If you replace them with LED lights the polarity is important.  One of my sockets, I think the one in the bathroom, was wired backwards, the other 4 were fine.
Technical Support / air dryer replacement

I have a 2007 Beaver Marquis.  I need to replace the air dryer.  It appears to be a Wabco ss1200 with a regeneration valve, but many of what I'm finding to purchase online don't have the regeneration valve.  Has anyone had any experience with this and if so, do you have a line on where to purchase one?

If you have the lights with gold colored bezels (surrounds), the gold bezel will twist off allowing access to the bulb. If they don't have a bezel they most likely pull down as they are held in place by springs on each side of the light.
It is not a fuse since 1 of the lights works and the bedroom ceiling, aisle, and reading lights are should all be on a single 12v, 15 amp circuit.
