The 1800 is for the AC only, I never mentioned the leaks from the rain.

Ahh, then to be putting it delicately, you are getting screwed without so much as a kiss. Take your business elsewhere.

Thats putting it delicately! Funny.

Im relieved already, we really wanted a better hitch system but put it on the back burner since we thought we were about to spend 2k on a new ac.

We will definitely shop around.

thanks

I also have to agree that the quote is not just a little high, but extremely high. I got a Carrier from the source Terry linked to in post 4 a little over a year and a half ago, see http://www.airforums.com/forums/f427...ead-40795.html, and was very pleased with my dealings with that company.

The hardest part was getting off the 25-year old sealer. Two-year old sealer should cut the installation time more than in half. I spent longer removing the hardened sealer than the entire rest of the job.

I'm going to give you two places to get comparison quotes, that I guarantee will provide the best quality service:

Airstream of Arksansas
Svc Mgr: Bill Tyler
(877) 247-4641
They are located just South of Little Rock

Jackson Center Airstream
Svc Advisor: Chris Burch
(937) 596-6111 x7413

Removing/replacing the A/C unit is not a real complicated deal, but I would be careful about letting someone crawl around on top of my coach that didn't have experience with Airstreams.....dents are expensive!

One slight correction, Airstream of Arkansas is located just other South (North) of Little Rock. Searcy is about 50 miles north up US67/167. They are good people. Being north makes them a little closer, too.

See:
Airstream of Arkansas: RVs for Sale in Searcy, AR - Airstream, Airstream Trailers For Sale - Airstream Travel Trailer
3111 East Race Avenue
Searcy, AR 72143-4809
(877) 247-4641

I suggest that you consider challenging the camp ground folks. Low voltage;unless they have a disclaimer for that, or act of nature.You are paying the freight at the CG. I had the same problem at a KOA,( negative damage). After that experience, I did purchase the autoformer. Also; somebody on the forum suggested that a dig voltmeter constantly pulled in,is a must.Mel

I'm not necessarily buying the idea that low voltage was the culprit. It's tough on them, yes, but they're supposed to be thermally protected and should shut themselves off before they melt. It may have failed for other reasons.

On a previous unit, SOB new HR. The carrier unit had to be replaced (warranty). The tech listed ( his opinion )low voltage as the cause of failure. However, I did not pursue the issue at that time with the campground, due to warranty replacement.Jun 08. Mel
