Is anyone else having a cornary looking at this mess?

In the past I have called you a "steely eyed missile man" Bob; I figure you're going to need all your resourcefulness and intellect to pull this back together.

I have great faith in you. but holy Batman you're scaring the bejeezers out of us.

Cheers
Tony

Yes, definitely a full plate on this one....I will have to distract myself with the other projects as I go along. I'm afraid that if I stay with the radiator project only I might blow my brains out ! Today I prepped the hole for the new hot water heater and cut off all of the original heater hoses front to back, it will be nice to have the factory rear auxiliary heater working again as well as the heat assist for the hot water heater, incidentally the radiator definitely needed repair....was also flowing poorly, can't complain though...it did it's job since 1989. Pulled down the shower trap as well today...going to have to pull the shower pan out to replace the floor, I'll do that when I install the glass shower door. Regards, Bob

I am back, My computer had to be reset and I lost my password to get on the forums. It may just be me, but I was a difficult task to figure out how to reset my password, I probably spent the same amount of time pulling the radiator out of the 370LE as resetting my password, and to be quite honest I would rather do another radiator than resetting the password again. Regards, Bob

I removed everything from the roof today...the incorrect too tall AC units..the new low profile 15,000 Penguin units with heat pumps should be here soon. The bathroom vents, black and gray holding tank vents, the old electric, non-functioning electric horns, the old Earth to Mars satellite dish mount, the rear bedroom solar dome cover and all of the satellite mounting cable straps....did I forget anything, oh yeah the Cool-O-Matic shroud for re-finishing along with the old TV antenna, anyone want the old one ???? Next weekend we are going to install all of the new heater hoses front to rear, remove the generator, remove all of the Pex plumbing and start sanding the roof where it is going to be painted white. The radiator is in the shop being re-cored, and he is checking the AC condenser for leaks, The AC compressor is all disassembled and waiting for parts. The new circuit breaker panel is ready for install and just received the new 50 amp transfer switch....still waiting on the 100 amp power converter. Full speed ahead...Regards, Bob

Bob I can't believe that the 370 used the same ceiling fan as in my 1983 310. Even John's 1985 325 had a newer version with lights around the fan. It's the exact same one; amazing. I have since swapped mine out for a Maxxair.

Please give me more info on what Penquin units you bought and why Penquin?

Cheers
Tony

Just to add....as my A/C units are high profile and probably pooched.

http://www.pplmotorhomes.com/parts/r...heat-pumps.htm

Good prices??????? Non ducted, right? What else would I need to complete the install? Any interior shrouds or do they come with the unit? How does the heat pump work in a non ducted install, and is it effective? I ripped out my old Suburban with the redo so currently only running portable heaters.

Should have probably PM'd you with all these questions.

Cheers
Tony

OK Tony here goes.... Penguin is the Snap-On of the Climate control world. We have 2 units on our 34' Classic Limited S/O. A 15,000 in the front and a 13,500 in the rear. When we were in South Dakota in 2008 the furnace would not work...outside temperature about 38 F. The heat pumps act like furnaces to about 35F. The 37' 370LE needs two 15,000 units to be comfortable....especially in Tenn. during June Classic Motorhome Get-Together rendevous! The interior non-ducted ceiling assm, part number is 3310741.016 $98.75 and the 15000 btu A/C unit number is 651816 $1,169.00 sold by Camper's Paradise (704)395-6015...hope this helps, Regards, Bob

Team,

Another source for the heat pump above, but for $100.00 less after shipping cost of $90 for one unit, unit cost of $989, or $172 shipping cost for two units. At this price, I'd get both units as 15,000 btu.

It's on the way to the get together for those coming in from the east side of the US, and it's two hours away from the park if anyone wanted to organize a group trip to save on shipping while we were out there.

This is also on my project list of things to do.

Sent you a PM but thought I'd also include this picture which does show the A/C differences. Mine has tall Colemans Mark III's, John has two different ones and you can just see your low profile Dometic beside Lance's 345.

Cheers
Tony

Parts for 370

Bob:

I recently purchased the 370 LE that was for sale in Georgia. It is in very good running condition, but it is also missing the dash AC components. Let me know what you find to work on this motorhome. I will need to replace all of the system as well.

Also, have you found any wiper blade refills to replace the OEM wiper blades?

Great to here from you Steve, let me know exactly what you need for your dash AC and I will help as much as I can, do you plan on using the original R-12 like me or doing a conversion to R-134. Are you missing any components ? The wiper blades are available from any Napa store, will get the part number and post it later.

Bob:

I am missing the compressor, evaporator, condenser, hoses and freon. A new engine was installed in this coach about 10,000 miles ago due to overheating. It seems the prior owner did not want to risk that again, so left off the AC components. I am not sure what the original components were for this system, and I could go with either R12 or 134.

OK Steve....I need to see some photos of your 370LE if I am to help. The compressors are still readily available as is the condenser and the receiver/dryer. Are you sure that the evaporator is missing??? It is located in the dashboard forward of the passenger seat. If you are serious about fixing the dash AC, you might want to inspect your radiator because you will have to remove sanity 70 percent of the crap anyway to install the condenser. Regards, Bob

Very heavy work weekend planned starting tomorrow...a double day, I'm in such a great mood now that a business man will be running the country instead of a politician ! Tomorrow we finish stripping the roof, remove the generator, remove the shower, and remove and replace all the heater hoses. New hot water heater is in..so we will be installing the new heater hoses to both the hot water heater, and the aux heater. New hoses also to the dashboard heater core as well as 2 new heater control valves. Sunday I will be stripping out all of the electrical AC components.....circuit breaker panel, the 2 original 30 amp transfer switches and the uni-volt. All the new components are in. Radiator should be back from the shop next week along with the AC condenser. The new roof AC units and related parts should be here as well but we still have to refinish the roof, so probably a Jan. 17 install on the roof related components. Steering box on it's way to MO. for rebuilding. New front brake rotors ordered this week along with new grease seals. Unfortunately the first road test is not scheduled until April, so I will not be able to tell if I am successful at eliminating the downhill brake shimmy until then. More pictures to follow over the weekend. Regards, Bob

Hey Bob, when you get around to the shower door how about some step by step pictures. I wanted to take a good look at your 325 at this year's get together but was mesmerized by everybody's updates/changes. Too much to take in all at once. Typically the shower door jams I have looked at are about as wide as the wall of our shower is thick. Normally these jams butt against a wider wall covered with tile or whatever and a bead of silicone does the trick of sealing. In the case of our motor homes I'm not sure what happens. This is a project I want to get done soon and have been putting off for this reason. Running out of excuses if you know what I mean.

OK Lance, I will document the shower door removal and installation on the 370LE. It's my second go around as I did one already on the 325LE. I am not skilled at all in wood working...wish Tony lived closer...between my mechanical skills and his wood working skills we could have an awesome shop. A solid 12 hours in yesterday, finished removing the AC units from the roof, removed the generator, removed the shower drain/trap, installed all but 2 of the new heater hoses/clamps, test fit the new hot water heater and mapped out the circuit breaker wiring while removing the circuit breaker original panel.
