Let me say thanks for the great forum, it has been a valuable source of information and gave me many options in my rebuild.
I have a 1964
- 26' Overlander that has been a work in progress since purchasing for $1.00 four months ago.
The carpet, tile, rotten wood, ants, broken windows, lights, aluminum skin on the bottom of the camper, heater, water lines, upholstery, ... have been torn out, removed, or replaced. I am working to bring this camper back from a storage unit to a functioning camper.
Now I am on to the A/C, the original unit still works but the fan motor is dragging, has no power, and must be started by hand. The compressor seems to work and if you run the unit for just a minute you get cool air. So now I am at the famous cross roads. Repair or replace.
Like so many others that have been down the rebuild road. Once I touch it, I must fix it. So I am not sure if I can tear the unit down and save it.
Thougths, find a new fan motor and give it a try. Or just scrap the original unit and upgrade to a new unit. Several internet vendors have the basic 15K btu models for far less than I would expect to spend on a new shroud (the old one will come off in peices), and a new fan motor.
From reading all the past posts, a 15K unit should be more than enough for my 26 foot camper. Have I missed anything?
