Bob, Tony's got a great point about doing the diesel conversion now if it's in the 370'S future.

Not yet on the diesel....when I retire....which may be this week....cause it's going to take me a year and a day to finish this wiring mess. The pots, pans, gloves, a shirt and various other crap was found upon removal of the hot water heater. Finished one new sub-harness for the front wiring...need to get more butt connectors tomorrow.

Is anyone else having a cornary looking at this mess?

In the past I have called you a "steely eyed missile man" Bob; I figure you're going to need all your resourcefulness and intellect to pull this back together.

I have great faith in you. but holy Batman you're scaring the bejeezers out of us.

Cheers
Tony

Yes, definitely a full plate on this one....I will have to distract myself with the other projects as I go along. I'm afraid that if I stay with the radiator project only I might blow my brains out ! Today I prepped the hole for the new hot water heater and cut off all of the original heater hoses front to back, it will be nice to have the factory rear auxiliary heater working again as well as the heat assist for the hot water heater, incidentally the radiator definitely needed repair....was also flowing poorly, can't complain though...it did it's job since 1989. Pulled down the shower trap as well today...going to have to pull the shower pan out to replace the floor, I'll do that when I install the glass shower door. Regards, Bob

I am back, My computer had to be reset and I lost my password to get on the forums. It may just be me, but I was a difficult task to figure out how to reset my password, I probably spent the same amount of time pulling the radiator out of the 370LE as resetting my password, and to be quite honest I would rather do another radiator than resetting the password again. Regards, Bob

I removed everything from the roof today...the incorrect too tall AC units..the new low profile 15,000 Penguin units with heat pumps should be here soon. The bathroom vents, black and gray holding tank vents, the old electric, non-functioning electric horns, the old Earth to Mars satellite dish mount, the rear bedroom solar dome cover and all of the satellite mounting cable straps....did I forget anything, oh yeah the Cool-O-Matic shroud for re-finishing along with the old TV antenna, anyone want the old one ???? Next weekend we are going to install all of the new heater hoses front to rear, remove the generator, remove all of the Pex plumbing and start sanding the roof where it is going to be painted white. The radiator is in the shop being re-cored, and he is checking the AC condenser for leaks, The AC compressor is all disassembled and waiting for parts. The new circuit breaker panel is ready for install and just received the new 50 amp transfer switch....still waiting on the 100 amp power converter. Full speed ahead...Regards, Bob

Bob I can't believe that the 370 used the same ceiling fan as in my 1983 310. Even John's 1985 325 had a newer version with lights around the fan. It's the exact same one; amazing. I have since swapped mine out for a Maxxair.

Please give me more info on what Penquin units you bought and why Penquin?

Cheers
Tony

Just to add....as my A/C units are high profile and probably pooched.

http://www.pplmotorhomes.com/parts/r...heat-pumps.htm

Good prices??????? Non ducted, right? What else would I need to complete the install? Any interior shrouds or do they come with the unit? How does the heat pump work in a non ducted install, and is it effective? I ripped out my old Suburban with the redo so currently only running portable heaters.

Should have probably PM'd you with all these questions.

Cheers
Tony

OK Tony here goes.... Penguin is the Snap-On of the Climate control world. We have 2 units on our 34' Classic Limited S/O. A 15,000 in the front and a 13,500 in the rear. When we were in South Dakota in 2008 the furnace would not work...outside temperature about 38 F. The heat pumps act like furnaces to about 35F. The 37' 370LE needs two 15,000 units to be comfortable....especially in Tenn. during June Classic Motorhome Get-Together rendevous! The interior non-ducted ceiling assm, part number is 3310741.016 $98.75 and the 15000 btu A/C unit number is 651816 $1,169.00 sold by Camper's Paradise (704)395-6015...hope this helps, Regards, Bob

Team,

Another source for the heat pump above, but for $100.00 less after shipping cost of $90 for one unit, unit cost of $989, or $172 shipping cost for two units. At this price, I'd get both units as 15,000 btu.

It's on the way to the get together for those coming in from the east side of the US, and it's two hours away from the park if anyone wanted to organize a group trip to save on shipping while we were out there.

This is also on my project list of things to do.

Sent you a PM but thought I'd also include this picture which does show the A/C differences. Mine has tall Colemans Mark III's, John has two different ones and you can just see your low profile Dometic beside Lance's 345.

Cheers
Tony
