Thank you all for letting us to know about the Honda EU2000 and the AC. I saw some treads about Yamaha 2400 which has some surge power build into it. However, right now the most important thing is the Fridge. Let me tell you what i did. I checked the heating element (42 ohms) and no shorts. I checked for the 12 volts DC to the board and it is there (13.2 V). I checked for 120 V AC, and I get that at the heating elements terminals. This is what I suspect. The Board sends the signal to the igniter as if there is no 120 V present, while there is actually 120 V at the terminals. I have not checked the on-off switch yet. Before I order a board I'll try to check that one to make sure I am not spending $200 because of a bad switch. I'll let you all know about this soon.
Also, I think we will go with carrier A/C unless somebody can tell us why we should not.
Thanks and Cheers
Danesh

That will give you the basic instructions. It will be the best investment you ever made.
Once you have it, then it becomes very easy to guide you from there.
What model Carrier AC did you buy?

Hey Andy,
You are indeed a wealth of information. Along the line of sevice manuals: I know they did not make a service manual for my '69 Sovereign, but have been told that the later ones (74?) offer a wealth of information. Is it worth it to buy the later one to apply to working on an earlier one? BTW the axles are working fine now(after your folks straighened out my "installer.") That was a close call.
thanks, bill b.

Buying a service manual, even though it is not for your year trailer, is the "best" investment you could ever make.

If it answered just one question, then it already paid for itself.

The manuals cover many things that are not year essentail, such as how do you work on the brakes, sheet metal, etc.

Armstrong A/C Replacement with DUOTHERM DOMETIC RV AIR CONDITIONER 13.5 BTU

Andy, are you there?

I am replacing the Armstrong A/C on my 73 Argosy with a DuoTherm Dometic 13.5 BTU unit. The question is, do I use the roof mounting from the Armstrong, or do I need a special part (ie drip pan?) from Airstream?

Thanks,
Sam Halderman

PS: The new A/C has not arrived yet, and I haven't seen the installation instructions.

You will need a drip pan.

Sam,

Dometic has a new fitting kit that eliminates the need for the drip pan and still allows you to connect the A/C drain to your internal drain hose. It will make for a cleaner installation without the drip pan.

I'm traveling at the moment and don't have the part #, but you can call Dometic Direct at 1-800-366-3842, tell them that you need the drip kit that replaces the old drip pan for an Airstream and you should be good to go. About $50 IIRC .

Lew & Andy: Thanks for the information about the Dometic kit. I will call Dometic after the new A/C arrives.
