Call me wak but doesn't the 360 have a problem with dust/oil and crap clogging up the A/C condenser/radiator. I think you need to give Kota a PM and he'll go throught it with you on how to flush out the CAC. I know I saw Kota discuss it on a thread somewhere.

FOUND IT!

Cheers

Good work, tony.
That was exactly what I thought should be brought up for consideration.
The question now is can the driver do anything about this lkely issue.
Can a hose run down thru the gap do any good at flushing enough clogage out to help.

Certainly worth a try I guess.

It will be interesting to hear Kota's take on it.

Cheers Richard

I believe the unit being driven to California is a gas engine not diesel.

Someone here mentioned using a product for the cooling system, called wet water. Or some such. The poster said that it helped drop his engine temps.

I don't know about it , but it may help for getting it home.

Cheers Richard

The product is called Water Wetter and would definitely be worth a try.

I think you basically have to drain your cooling system and then refill with water and Water Wetter. We used in on our Triumph race car with reasonable success.

It also helps to use distilled water to keep out the impurities.

My buddy has been driving half the day and the needle is right in the middle, so it was the fan clutch. I'm sure the new coolant and thermostat helps a bit as well. I am happy that I do not have to purchase a new or recored radiator.

Kudos to Open Roads Complete RV in Acworth, GA. I called them on Friday morning, and they got me in immediately. They put it on a lift, ordered the part and saved me money on it, and changed the fluids. Got my buddy back on the road by Saturday at noon.

Just a couple of problems along the way. The generator will not be operational until El Paso. Because of that, he had to get a motel last night because it was too hot. When he got back to the rig, the key just spun in the lock and he could not get in. He tried to remove the passenger wing window (triangle window), and he broke it. How can I quickly get new glass for that window? I need to take this to Burning Man next Saturday.

Second issue is the AC was working and just quit, so I will have to troubleshoot that as well. Any good mechanics in the Los Angeles area, or maybe Temecula/Riverside area? He is willing to stop in El Paso to get the window fixed too, if anybody would have that in stock.

In regards to the lock, is that an easy fix, or should I only use the deadbolt? This is what I told him to do for now on. I am not sure if the central locking caused this issue or not but he said it is working again.

If it's the sliding wing window that is broken the only place I know of to find a replacement slider is at Inland RV. If it's the fixed window that is broken then you're pretty much out of luck finding a replacement. About your only option is to use a piece of Lexan or Plexiglass. The fixed panes have not been available for years. Inland RV is located in the Los Angles area.

Airstream Supply in Salt Lake shows both left and right side sliding panels available (used) for $475 each.
