RE: A/C Issues??

No repair was done and the mobile tech was from the dealer I bought it from. All ductwork in tact.

RE: A/C Issues??

A/C Update - Mobile tech came out today and checked amperage draw on the front unit and it was a little over 9. He said when it is working hard it will draw a little over 12. He measured the vent temp with a probe hooked up to his multimeter. I knew something was off as it measured ambient temp at 55.4 degrees and it was 74 in the coach. That said, it measured the cold air at 28.8 degrees, close to a 30 degree difference. My infrared measured 74 ambient and 44 at the vent so they agreed more or less. Still no explanation as to why a 15,000 BTU unit can’t get the coach below 85 when it’s 88 outside. I’ve ordered reflective screens for the front window so we’ll see what difference they make, if any. The tech they sent knew nothing about how to rewire the furnace controls so I will be getting another visit from someone who knows something and during the week so they can contact Tiffin. I looked at the panel in the front drivers side bay and nothing was marked “furnace”.

RE: A/C Issues??

I agree it wasn’t the right thermometer but it measured something at those temps. It was either the vent or the duct behind the vent. Furnace problem was simple. I turned the front furnace on and the rear one came on. The rear one turns the front one on. However they both still rely on their own respective temperature sensors. So they run on and on because the sensor in the front won’t turn the rear one off. The front touch control turns on the front a/c and the front heat pump but the rear furnace. The rear touch control turns on the rear a/c and the front furnace.

RE: Adam Graphine ceramic coating

I just had my coach washed and the guy was pushing a ceramic coating that he claimed would last 9 years. For $3800 for a 38’ coach I’ll just stick with a wash and wax every 6 months.

RE: A/C Issues??

Doug - thanks for your input. The digital thermometer I used is a Jumper digital thermometer. The “House” symbol indicates object measurement mode. It seems to be accurate with other similar type measurements. The readings I got were taken right at the vent with both a/c’s running. Although this is not perhaps the right tool to use it’s what I had and I doubt it would be 20 degrees off. I have the mobile tech from La Mesa RV coming next Saturday to fix my reversed furnace wiring and some other things. I will have them check both a/c units while they are here. I would imagine they have a more appropriate measuring device for the application.

RE: A/C Issues??

Measurements done with a digital thermometer set on house mode. Will invest in some reflective shades for the front window. Front of coach is primarily black so I’m sure that isn’t helping much.

RE: A/C Issues??

Front measures 42.3 rear measures 44.1 at the roof vent. It is ducted from front to rear. Same fan speed on both. Seems to be equal air flow from all vents. 3 vents in the roof in front, 3 in the rear.

A/C Issues??

Brand new coach - 2 months old. In Casa Grande, AZ. Outside temp is 85 degrees. Both front and rear A/C’s are set at 75. Rear of coach is 74, front of coach is 84. All solar shades are down and windshield solar and night shades are down. Front of coach faces generally west. Do I have an issue with the front A/C unit? Do I need to cover the windshield better? Appreciate your input.

RE: portable water softener

We started out with the 16,000 grain On the Go unit. Knowing we would be spending most of our time in AZ it was a must have.

RE: New motor home blues…

Found another issue last night while in AL. Temps dropped to low 50’s so I sparked up the furnaces. Thankfully everything worked fine until…. the back was getting too hot so I lowered the temperature and went to bed. A few hours later nature called and I walked into the back bathroom and it was like a sauna, over 80 degrees! I went and turned off the rear furnace. About 3 AM nature called again and the back furnace was STILL running. I went up front to the main control panel and it was quite chilly. Then the lightbulb lit. I turned off the FRONT furnace and the BACK furnace shut off!! I turned on the BACK furnace and the FRONT furnace came on!! So, something is either mis-wired or the control is mis-programmed. On top of that, after two leveling jack repairs it now fails to level successfully. One or both rear jacks won’t ground. I give up until we get to our permanent residence at Palm Creek in Casa Grande, AZ and have the mobile tech make a house call.

RE: New motor home blues…

My coach was built during the transition so that could explain some of it.

RE: New motor home blues…

We had the mobile techs out first thing this morning. They fixed the leak in the Truma Aqua Hot (something loose and just required tightening), they removed the two hydraulic hoses and had new ones made at a local shop. Were back, installed, system bled and tested all before lunch. Kudos to the LaMesa service team!!

RE: New motor home blues…

Yes it is all warranty repairs but it has caused much disruption to our plans of visiting family and friends before our relocation to Phoenix and loss of hundreds of dollars of prepaid park stays that have had to be canceled last minute due to having to stay within proximity of our dealers mobile tech service radius.

RE: New motor home blues…

Can I not catch a freakin' break here??? Now I have a pin hole leak in the Truma Hot Water heater!!! Arrgghhhhh!!!!

RE: New motor home blues…

La Mesa tech came out and found TWO lines to the front right jack melted from being up against the exhaust system. It seems people either have no brains or take no pride in workmanship.

RE: Gasser guys and gals ...why not a diesel ?

Cost - Roughly $100k more. Fuel more expensive. Maintenance more expensive. My gasser with liquid springs rides quite nicely.

RE: New motor home blues…

The saga continues. After another week in Orlando and a few days after what I thought was a successful repair to the hydraulic line for the leveling jacks we proceeded to go 2 hours south to Stuart, FL to see my folks. Pulled in to our site, leveled the rig and went out the door to meet the neighbors who promptly said “You have something leaking under your rig. Sure enough there’s a puddle of hydraulic fluid with a line hanging down up against the catalytic converter. I’m assuming the genius that put the new hydraulic line on chose not to secure it and it dropped down and rode for two hours next to the catalytic converter melting a hole in it. I have now scheduled a mobile tech from La Mesa in Port St Lucie to come out Thursday AM to evaluate. I extended my stay here thankfully they were able to) and canceled my week in Sarasota probably losing my $470 I paid there. You gotta laugh to keep from crying but this is getting more absurd by the day.

RE: New motor home blues…

Yes the service tech told me they use oil. Something else they failed to mention at orientation.
