Can anyone tell me what the replacement heater core would be for the auxillary heater unit on a 1987 345? It is the one located under the sofa. Thanks

Good question. I've never seen the answer to this posted on the forums. If you do find a suitable replacement let us know.

You might try contacting Airstream and see if they can provide any info.

Good luck!

Brad

I had mine repaired, not replaced. But, I bet if you take yours to a radiator shop they can re-core it. If the fan is shot ...?

1987,

Could not fine a replacement core at Napa, so I had one built at the local radiator shop. 275.00 Brand new! Pricey, but I love that little heater. Heater valve came from O'Reilly's Part # 74827. I think everco, but not noted on ticket.

I do wish I would have changed the blower fan while I was in there. It is a little noisy, particularly on the high setting!

Happy trails,

PD

You did what I would have recommended. Radiator shops can usually recore heaters for much less than new core cost. Glad you got it fixed.

Thanks guys. I tried the guy in Florida who bought all of Airstreams inventory of parts when they quit making motorhomes. He is usually a really good source for new replacement parts. Unfortunately he had already ran out of the core I needed. I'll go to the local radiator shop

1987: Is there a part number on your heater control valve? Also, what is the arrangement of the heater hoses in relationship to the "t" going back to the aux. heat and the valve and the core?

I need to replace my valve and haven't found a valve that has the right flow direction.

I am also thinking that some of the hot water (even with the valve off ) is making its way into the dash heater core which is effecting the dash a/c cooling capabilities.

Anybody else who could help me on this, chime in!!!


Thanks, PD
