Thanks Bob. Did our first test drive in triple digits. Fan clutch cycled a couple of times but much less than in the past. I think the dash AC problems have been worked out it seemed to cool fine. Max air was just a busted vacuum line. All that remains is taking the dash apart to get good airflow through the center vents. Excuse my meat thermometer itís all I could find!

For a second there I thought it said 95 degrees! Didn't realize it was upside down

In OKC for training this week. Decided hotels suck so I took the 345. My wife works from home so came along as well. Week of camping on my company card. First and probably the last time I get to do that!
Almost issue free just had a stumble on acceleration three different times in the way down. Heat index was 113 so Iím thinking maybe vapor lock? Not sure hopefully I get it worked out tomorrow.

One last thing. RV parks in Oklahoma have voltage issues when it’s hot! 106 most afternoons. Makes me afraid to leave the dogs alone when it’s hot due to tripped breakers.

Absolutely don't leave the dogs alone inside!
My first trip out of state to Michigan we came back from running around all day to find out one half of the 50A power had been shut off to the whole campground because it overloaded

Thankfully I had upgraded to 50A so one of the two ACs was still running, but shortly after we got back that one shut off too. That could have very easily turned out just slightly different and there would have been 3 dead puppies inside, the Airstream heats up just as fast as any car.

Plenty of stories that don't end as lucky, we realized on the spot we would never be able to leave the dog alone in the Airstream during the day in the summer, she only gets left alone at night or if it's cool enough we don't need the AC to be comfortable


It's unfortunate, but RVs are not houses, and they don't have reliable enough power to depend on. I've also seen state parks have power distribution panels shut down in the heat, and I've had plugs melt at the pedestal, it's a frustrating and insufficient system to say the least

Love those Coleman grills, we live on yours whilst camping.

Have ours connected to the main propane tank using a 4-way manifold and a 12ft high pressure hose to replace the little green gas canisters.

Fanbelt

Hi there, do you know the different sizes & numbers of all the different fanbelts that go with the 345 motorhome. All of them broke at one go on the highway & I donít even know how many there are, due to only have bought this beauty not so long ago.
