Almost looks like someone tried to re-solder the led to the mini circuit board it's on. I don't need the light, but wonder if they sell a replacement board and LED. I swear I read somebody has had the problem recently.


I have not see the lED light up on mine either. I havent been up there, but i am guessing its a small panel on the A?C which is probably only good for trickle charging. I plan to put at least 100 Watts up there.

Replacing my AC unit on my Majestic 28A RV. Ordered Dometic # 3314850.000 13.500 BTU Brisk Air II. Install was easy, found out new ac needs special controller to work and also my old Dometic thermostat will not work with new AC also .
AC # 3314850.000
Controler # 312020.000 $122.88
THermostat # 3314082.011 $ 82.00

I took the information off the panel a couple of years ago but the manufacture never answered me. Failure of the unit seems to be a common problem. Ended up fitting a new small unit above the panel to control the roof solar panel and wired into the existing sytem having completly removed the exisiting neon unit with charge contol.

Did this A/C fail so soon after purchase? Or was it an upgrade you wanted to make?

AC failed last week , AC repair service (a friend of mine) checked it Blower motor shot, compressor not much better.It would cost more to fix it than replace it.

My story, starting a construction project out of state, rented a car, stop to take a look at another business opportunity and Bullhead city Arizona and found an ad for an RV that seemed way underpriced. I responded to the ad and found out that they put the wrong picture of a wrong coach. I went to look at it anyway on a Wednesday morning and by that Wednesday afternoon I returned the rental car one way and was out the door with it for a 400 mi journey to Utah. This was fairly new to their lot and they hadn’t prepped it yet so I was taking a huge gamble- I negotiated fairly good deal (Magestic 28’, 2000, 101,000 mi, prior owner bought it in ‘06 and put 6,000mi on it. Needless to say it sat a lot must have been inside because it’s in good shape. Heater motor/fan was frozen, got it working, roof leaked and there is a soft spot by the rear air vent- I put two coats of white roof paint and now leak free, grey water plumbing was loose and separated in one spot- fixed that, the uppassenger side drain black water valve was frozen (not good for connecting sewer hose) got it kind of working, the refrigerator was replaced with 110 only so when not plugged in and don’t want to run the gen all the time, use a cooler, cruise control not operative- trying to figure that one out, I think the over drive over heats (especially in hot weather) and shuts off for a few minutes I think to kool and then works again- on a 100 deg day, that happens about every 10 mins- other than that, it and the transmission runs great. Engine runs great other than hard to get gas to it at cold start up- the C forum diagnosed that a few weeks ago when I first got it- thank you!, gen and everything else runs great. The dealer replaced the house battery and I noticed it has room for two but no electrical for a second batt... do these typically have one or two back there? Rear tires have valve extensions and a couple of the rears seem to have a hard time holding air. And thank you to who posted about the 100,000 mike timing belt heads up... as no papers came with this coach, I have no idea what’s been done... I’ll put that on the list at next service.

Very best, CaptR

CaptR welcome to the forum and the Former Rental Owners Club,I will put you on the list,you will be #103 [image]

It sounds like you are handy and can fix what is needed. As for the batteries, all the Majestic that I know of come with only one battery,if there is room for 2 I would suggest getting 2 6 Volt Golf Cart batteries, that is what most people have. They can be wired in series with no extra wiring except for a jumper between the batteries,they will give you more amp hours.
Good ones can be bought at Costco.

Get rid of the valve extensions,they will always leak,get solid valve stems,A few companies make them,they are worth the money and you will not have anymore leakage,they are easier to use to fill and check your tires.

Also I don't know if you saw it or you have a ladder in the rear,most Majestics don't, here is a Link to one.

Congrats on your rig and keep us informed on how it is going.
