With instructions provided by one of the forum members I was able to remove the broken Fedders unit from our 1999 RoadTrek 190 Popular. One of the knobs had broken off and when the compressor kicked in it drew so much load that it stalled the generator. This is a rig that has sat unused for years.
It was a pain, but the removal was doable for the average driveway mechanic. I bought a Sharp air conditioner through Amazaon.com that has more cooling power, uses less energy and came with a wireless remote control.
The only trick is this: Once the new air conditioner is installed it must be secured and trimmed with matching wood pieces. I'm in the middle of the project right now and I'm pretty sure this portion of the project will be the most time-consuming.
is any one out there having trouble with there rear fedders a/c unit. we just bought a 2002 roadtrek 190 versital. our rear air unit will not blow cold air. it looks like if mounts from the rear. I am not a mechanic but would like to remove the unit and try to find a new unit or get the old one repaired. has anyone had this same problem and if so what was your fix.
RT's in '02 could be either Dodge or Chevy. I think Fedders was used in Dodges. If so, there used to be instructions for removal and replacement on-line, but I'm not sure there still are, or where. Maybe go the 'search' box above and use it to search for RT + air conditioner.
Jim, "Mo' coffee!"
