    ECOA Newsletter

    August 1, 2015

    The first half of the year has been extremely busy for

    members of ECOA. It began in January with 24 members

    attending the Tampa Supershow. The happy hours were

    fantastic with the final one being attended by the Entegra

    leadership and the president of Summit Stainless.

    Our gatherings moved into February with 35 coaches

    attending the Entegra event at Lazy Days in Tampa. This

    is the first of its kind event was a combination of support

    from Lazy Days and Entegra. Owners were treated to two

    dinners at the Crown Club as well as dinners at Lazy

    Days RV Resort. Seminars were held and a modification

    open house was well attended by those who were there.

    Thanks to Mario LaCute our new treasurer for organizing

    this event.

    The month of March saw a caravan to the Good Sam/

    Camping World Rally in Phoenix. This event was hosted

    by Dianne and Stew Stewart. The attendees were treated

    to great music and a variety of seminars.

    And all-time record number of coaches (60) attended the

    Buckhorn Lake Resort Rally in Kerrville, TX this past

    May. Our annual meeting was held with new officers for

    the next two years elected. The new officers are as

    follows. Again, great food (can anyone say a 3” thick

    Porkchop), and fabulous places to visit were part of the

    program. Tadd Jenkins and Pat Carroll were in attendance

    for the Entegra sponsored true Texas barbecue. They even

    hung around for a question and answer period. National

    Indoor RV Centers provided display coaches, a detailing

    crew and tech-support for those present. We continue to

    thank Brett Davis for his support of our organization.

    Club member Doug French (C&D Coach Weighing) also

    provided discounted 4-corner coach weighing to help our

    members. The modification open house was held once

    again, and is fast becoming a staple of our rallies.

    Officers Elected:

    Patrick Bauer, President

    Mario LaCute, Treasurer

    Medarda Bauer, Secretary

    Doug French, National Director

    Thomas Crowley, Vice President Southeast

    Stephen Hall, Vice President Northeast

    Linda Hanson, Vice President Midwest

    Raymond Wenig, Vice President West

    The ribbon-cutting ceremony in Middlebury saw several

    hundred Entegra owners celebrate the new Entegra

    factory and attend the rollout of the 2016 models. While

    the food and friendship were outstanding the real stars

    were the brand new Entegra coaches. Hopefully everyone

    has had the opportunity to either see them in person or

    online. The new end caps usher in a new era of design for

    our favorite coach. The rest of us will now be “Classic”

    Entegra Coaches going forward.

    As we write this, 20 plus coaches attended the Egg

    Harbor Rally in Door County, Wisconsin. Rally Masters

    Tom and Lynn Crawley prepared a wonderful agenda

    which included a visit to an Entegra owners restaurant as

    well as a beautiful sunset cruise and fabulous meals.

    From Egg Harbor, Doug French coordinated an Entegra

    Owners Caravan for the FMCA International Family

    Reunion Rally held in Madison. 13+ coaches were

    present and I'm sure the seminars and entertainment were

    well enjoyed.

    ECOA will conclude the 2015 rally schedule in Hilton

    Head, South Carolina. 35 coaches are signed up for this

    October event. If you have not signed up and would like

    to attend, send an email to Pat Bauer at before August 9th.

    2016 Future Events

    January 12-17 Tampa Supershow

    March 17-22 FMCA International Rally in Perry Georgia

    April 15-19 INTO Rally in Tallahassee Florida

    We are still researching locations and dates for our spring

    ’16 club rally, but no decisions have been finalized at this


    If you would like to attend any of these events please

    check our website beginning in September at

    Finally, we are in desperate need of a member with

    webpage design and management experience, who

    could lend a hand to handle the actual updating of our

    webpage. We’re not expecting to make lots of changes,

    just updating the pages we currently have. If you have

    something to offer, please send a quick note to

    I hope you all got the notice I sent out about the Fan Blade Replacement Kits. I’ve gotten a few questions back, so here’s a few quick thoughts:

    1. It only applies to the Coleman Mach Low-Profile heat pumps from Airxcel, a division of RV Products. You’ll need to consult your Owners Manuals, or actually get on the roof to see if you have these units. I know Entegra used some Dometic A/C’s early on. This does not apply to the Dometic units.
    2. The new fans have 3 blades and move more air through the unit. The old fans have 6 blades.
    3. Airxcel has only just started shipping units with the new blades, so this pretty much applies to everyone who has the Airxcel units.
    4. Entegra considers this an upgrade and will not reimburse you for the cost of the new blades or their installation.
