  1993 ???

I've talked to the owner, he insists it IS a 1993; I thought the last of the classic bodystyle was 1989???

  SCS Basement AC tripping breakers
Posted by: InfiLights - 06-11-2018, 07:31 AM - Forum: Air Conditioning - Replies (5)

Hi all,

Looking for some advice for a friend with a 98 Vantare that has a SCS basement unit along with 2 separate CruisAirs with SMX controllers...never heard of this setup before...
Anyway....he is having an issue that I would like to help resolve with your collective help.

The basement air starts and runs fine for about 10 minutes and then it trips the breakers. What would cause that and when to start the investigation to address this problem ? He says that unit would put out cold air fine and sometimes run for 15-20 min then trip the breakers and sometimes as short as 10 min. Must be a amp surge somewhere inside......

Any thoughts ?

Hey got a question!  My rear Air conditioner will not shut off, unless I turn the breaker off!
Could the Thermostat be Bad?

I have used the above external surge protector for a few years. I plug it into a power post and it provides me with volts and amps per each leg. It tells me if the post is safe to use. Last Thursday evening it was plugged into a power post at Newell and was working appropriately. We had the four roof airs running, Aqua Hot was on, the water pump and auxiliary water pump was on and the dish washer was running. At some point during the night the coach stop receiving power. The refrigerator switched to the inverter, but the breaker for the refrigerator then trip. 
The readings from the Progressive Industries showed normal power at the post, but was not letting the electricity move to the coach. I found the breaker for the refrigerator and turned it back on. I started the generator and it showed normal operation. I then turned off the generator and waited a few minutes and plugged the 50 amp cord into the power poll. All of the electrical legs were working normally.
When we arrive at the storage unit I plugged the Progressive Industries into the 50 amp service and received a normal condition. I then plugged the 50 amp cord into the surge protector and now power went to the coach.  I unplugged the 50 amp cord from the surge protector and straight into the 50 amp outlet and power to the coach was provided.
Any thoughts on why the surge protector refused to allow power to the coach?
Why did the inverter breaker for the fridge trip?

  Switching From Generator to 50 Amps For Roof Airs
Posted by: rcantrell52 - 06-10-2018, 10:11 AM - Forum: Air Conditioning - Replies (5)

We were at Newell this past week for service and while on the road to and from Newell we ran all four roof airs using the generator. When we arrived home I turned off the air conditioners and the generator and plugged the coach into 50 amp. After plugging the coach into 50 amp I noticed that it took about two minutes before the thermostat would turn on. Is two minutes switching from generator to 50 amp too long?
The other thing I noticed during our return trip home was that the thermostat would not allow me to change the temperature on any of the air conditioner zones. The thermostat was unresponsive to zone changes, temperature changes, or changing from a/c to heat. Any thoughts on this situation? I appreciate any and all input.

  Genset temps VERY hot while driving
Posted by: AlanJohnson - 06-09-2018, 07:53 AM - Forum: Generators - Replies (7)

My 20kw genset runs VERY hot while driving.  And it never shuts off.  (I chicken out and shut it down manually when temp guage approaches 250 (max)). Here is what I know.

1. I've had the coach a year. It seems well maintained by PO.
2. PO advised me of this condition. He had had it checked out at Newell and they said it was "normal" to run quite hot while driving.
3. Temperature is under 200 when stationary
4. It does not lose coolant
5. Cooling fan seems to work properly (although after reading a prior post, i'll see if squirrel cage blades need cleaning.)

1. On the front of the engine (where I think the thermostat is located) are 2 things with wires attached to them. I assume they are:
    a) Temp sender for overheat shut-off
    b) Temp sender for dash temp guage.     Am I correct about these two? and which is which?
2. How can I make sure each of these are working correctly? (Especially the auto shut-down one)
3. At what temp should this be shutting itself down?
4. Opposite side of the thermostat housing is a plug.  Is this for a third sensor? (Could it be used to validate reading from dash guage?)
5. Would pointing an IR temperature reader at the housing tell me the temp as well?

Ideas for lowering the operating temp...
1. I will wash out radiator with a hose.  Not sure how dirty it is, but i do see some build up of dirt on inside of it. Is hose cleaning sufficient?
2. See if blades on squirrel cage fan need cleaning
3. I see a smallish (9-12") piece of rubber seal hanging down under front of the generator. I'll put it back in place. Could a small seal leak be letting in enough negative pressure to keep it from cooling?  
4. What else????

Thanks for your help.
