I grouted the bath tile and installed the bedroom carpet today. I still have some trim work to do.

After the ac runs for about 15 min, the fan slows down to a slow speed. If I stop for awhile and then start up again, the fan goes back to high for another 15 min. I'm trying to figure this one out!

I would jump the blower motor direct. See if it will run more than 15 min that way. If does then the motor is fine I use a power probe II to perform test like this. The PP tool plugs into a cigar lighter socket or has clips to connect direct to the battery. When you touch the tip to a wire it will tell you if it is hot or ground. There is a switch you can press and it will send 12volts to the tip to energize the circuit direct. There is a meter that will read the voltage to the tip as well. You may need to reproduce the fault and read the voltage at the motor. This tool will check the motor or switch or resistor. It can only be one of those. I would be interested in how you solve this. Please write back.
Steve

What did you use to prep the dash and what sort of paint are you using?

I'm using the Dupli-color paints...the prep spray, the adhesion promoter and the vinyl paint...spray cans.

The dash turned out great! I'm glad to get rid of the old '80s orange. Now just have to keep working on the ugly rose colored carpet. Just what were they thinking back in the 80's? Also made a little foot rest for the passenger side.

We were lucky, we have a grey carpet, but our dash needs work. The "simulated wood trim" on the exterior drives me nuts, but the kids that admire Bess think it's cool, they say it's "retro", whatever that means. The 80's were not exactly the best time for color schemes, it was disco mania, if any of you recall.

I think it is sort of cool to mix the new with the old. My painted dash looks like it just rolled off the factory floor, but the gauges are sort of retro...I sort of like that!

Mike,
When I painted my dash I used a paint made by Krylon called Fusion for plastic, a no prep super bond paint and it worked excellent. Used it on all the interior plastics in the coach, such as air conditioner cover, vents, ceiling above shower and so forth.

Thanks Steve. I really like the thermostat. Wiring was simple for me. Thermostat works the furnace only. I have only two wires, R and W.
