Gee, you could have color-coded the fuses so you would know at a glance what color fuse to put back in. They are different colors for different amperages...

Hello,
I just put an after market AC/Heater unit that went in great and cools with R134. I have the old unit intack, blower and ducts if anyone needs one. It was operational. I wanted more efficeint cooling with less HP drain. Many manufactures are making complete kits for this. The dash was a breeze with no real issues and it does cool and heat.

Chris, who did you go with for the aftermarket A/C? What was the finished cost? Got photos? Thanks.

Air Conditioning Supplier for Airstream

I recently had a problem with my dash air. I talked to Airstream and they turned me over to ACME Air. They are the suppliers of the systems for Airstream. I called them and they have part numbers and cross references for all the components in the system. Mine runs a Ford Blower Resistor with a Chevy Blower and Dodge Controls??? Anyway, they were great. I believe their website is ACME Home Page.

ducting to dash?

We just recharged our dash ac and can hear the fan running but get very little (nice and cold) air out of the dash vents. Anyone have this happen and if so what was the fix?

Pretty much limited to three things

1. Air return blocked - located at bottom of kick board on passenger site.

2. Air ducts under dash not connected to vent plenum or duct crimped

3. Blower motor hooked up reverse polarity

Good luck!

My duct hoses were so brittle they allowed the air to escape everywhere before it got to the vents. Check for cracked duct hoses. You may have to order new ones since they are a larger diameter than what is available in most auto part shops.

thanks

We will investigate next week, as it is in the shops for yet another gear vendors glitch! But the GV works great when it does

In post #21 Photo in top left corner. Does anyone know what material is used on the air supply door? Air stream and Inland RV can't seam to find this door, so they don't know what the part number is.
Thanks

Airstream and the usual Airstream dealers don't stock Chevy parts, nor do they have any reference materials for Chevy part numbers.

Thanks Andy. I find it's hard to figure out what parts go to Chevy and what parts are Air Stream. I'll try to get to a Chevy dealer today. Thanks Again.
