RE: Air conditioner supply shortage?

Your repair shop is correct. I have been looking for a new Coleman AC unit for a few weeks and there is not one to be found. People that say they have one really don't. They are placing your order on back order and hoping to drop ship one from a distributor.

RE: Air conditioning in new 5th Wheel

Thanks for your response. We have been here overnight already. It does seem like the air is coming out cool. Just not cooling the unit down during the day. If the air exiting the unit is 10 or more degrees cooler than the air going in, thats about all you can expect. Putting air pillows in any skylights, putting additional insulation on windows, especially those facing afternoon sun will all help. The temperature differential should be closer to 20F-22F. Something is wrong if the differential is only 10F.

RE: Fridge wiring

The blue wire is a test wire and is not connected during use. The empty two-pin slot on the board is where the thermistor connector goes. The wire not connected is the thermistor wire that needs to be reconnected.

RE: New a/c unit problem

It might have been easier to buy a new inside ceiling assembly to go with the new upper unit. I love new stuff to spruce up my rig.

RE: Experience replacing RV fridge drain hose?

I used vinyl tubing from the local big box hardware store. It was half inch ID IIRC - and cheap. This is what I recommend. The clear vinyl tubing will last forever.

RE: Time for air conditioner replacement

Is seems silly to remove three brand new circuit boards from three new AC units and then install three used boards from 12 year old AC units. The correct plan is to buy a new 10-button thermostat for less than $100 and upgrade your entire system. It's all plug and play. Where is the $500 savings?

RE: Anyone traveling yet

We have been in South Texas all winter and will be headed to South Fork, Colorado today. Looking forward to some beautiful scenery and peace and quiet. Nice people, too.

RE: Keystone Bullet Premiere 19 FBPR Roof repair help

Take some fender washers with self-tapping screws and screw it down. No reason to cut the rubber roof. Then cover the screws with self leveling Dicor or Etenabond tape.

Thank you gentlemen for your help! The sail switch recommendation appears to have fixed my problem! Randy Success at last.

RE: Dometic penguin heat pumps

If I understand correctly, you made the rear AC Zone 1, added 12V to it and ran the thermostat directly to the back AC and the rear AC ran correctly. Did you then try and make the front AC, Zone 2 and reinitialize? Try that. If you get the E01 code I believe you still have a communication cable issue between the front and back units. Can I assume you used a communication cable and not a phone cable? If you have the proper cables, did you replace the small cream colored connecters that connect the communication cables to the AC harness? Are all communication cable ends in like new condition. If not, clip them off and install new ends.

RE: Coleman Airxcel thermostat and controller box installation

That would be easy. Connect the red wire on the thermostat to the Battery + on the battery. Connect the green wire on the thermostat to the B- terminal on the control box. Add a second wire from the B- terminal to the Battery - on the battery. Hook up the 120VAC and everything will run assuming you have also hooked up the compressor, low fan, high fan, white furnace (heat strip) wire and freeze sensor. The green wire from thermostat is currently connected to GH (HIGH Fan) on the control box? I just want to make sure. Sorry Green wire is GH Blue wire is Ground

RE: Coleman Airxcel thermostat and controller box installation

The orange and white wires plug into the control box. This is the 120VAC power that comes from the control box and powers the heat strip (not a furnace) located in the Air-conditioner. The red wire I refer to is the typical 12V wire at the LP furnace. Coleman thermostats are typically powered from this 12V power source. You can use any 12V you can find but you have to run it to the thermostat. Coleman thermostats need 12V to the red wire. Then the thermostat sends 12V up the ceiling control box. The ceiling control box then sends 120VAC to the AC compressor, low and high fan and the heat strip depending on your thermostat settings. Just curious, do you also have an LP (Propane) furnace, If yes, is there another thermostat to control it?

RE: Coleman Airxcel thermostat and controller box installation

The blue wire from the thermostat goes to ground anywhere on the RV and also must be connected to the (B-) wire on the control box.

RE: Coleman Airxcel thermostat and controller box installation

As a repairman, I run into this issue every time someone wants to change from ceiling controls to a wall thermostat. You have to run a 12VDC wire from somewhere. These options come to mind. 1. Run a 12V wire from a source near the new thermostat location. You might be able to use a light source. Just make sure you use 12V that comes to the light switch, not the 12V leaving the light switch to the light. 2. Run 12V from the furnace to the thermostat. Tap into the red furnace wire. 3. Run a new 12V line from the fuse panel. 4. I have added a 120VAC Duplex box (THINK WALL OUTLET IN HOUSE) in the ceiling assembly area. Use the 120VAC coming to the new Control box. Just splice it in series prior to the control box. You can now buy an 120VAC to 12DC adapter (Radio Shack) Plug the adapter into the Duplex box and then you have a new 12VDC source. Since you have to run a bunch of wires from the Control Box down to the thermostat, you can run one more wire for the 12V to the thermostat. Hope this helps.

RE: Intermittant A/C

I have the exact same system. Same problem with the afternoon sun. Put the thermostat in high or low for a few hours until the sun gets lower and problem is solved. The system is trying to settle on low speed but then the rig warms up and it goes back to high. It takes about 5 seconds for the motor to change speeds. It does cycle from low to off and then to high.

RE: Best roof coating for aging rubber roofs

I have used Dicor and Hengs. The Dicor is more expensive, requires a primer and you have to put plastic drop cloths on the side of the RV to prevent paint damage from the primer. It looks great two years later. On my other RV used Hengs to save time and money. The Hengs did a good job. You wash the roof real good, let it dry and put it on. It takes one-gallon to do a 30-foot RV. This is one coat. I suggest you put on two coats. Do try and stretch the paint out. I used a 2-inch brush to cut in all the edges and vents and then a roller for the big areas. The prep is key and it is a lot of work.

RE: How to remove gutter spouts from TT

I have replaced a few of these and almost every one of them had one screw that had to be removed. It was usually located under some caulk or under the plastic edging that covers the awning rail screws. A little prying was necessary to wiggle the gutter spout out from under the metal edging.
