No3putt,
Towed from Lordsburg, NM to Az Freightliner in Tucson,Az.
The Service advisor called today and told they order a new A/C compressor, Receiver Dryer,wire harness that controls the fan clutch and a radiator shroud.

Kudos to AZ Freightliner Tucson Service Dept.
Our MH was towed to Az. Freightliner on Monday 06/20. See my original post for reference.
They replaced our A/C Compressor, Receiver Dryer, Serpentine belt and Fan Clutch Hub Wire harness. They called me with updates several times during the week. All of the work was completed 6/24. We returned to Tucson 06/29, picked up our RV and returned home arriving 06/30. Our dash A/C never cooled as good as it does now. All of the service Department at AZ Freightliner were friendly and willing to assist us with our need.

Apparently there's an issue with the A/C compressors in these units. I was broken down in Vermont for 4 days last August. Same thing, compressor froze, spun the belt off.

It's going around. My dash ac stopped working last year, took my unit in this spring for what I thought was routine service and had to have sepertine belt, dash ac and heat work a fuel leak and missing tail pipe replaced. FL said the belt was normal wear and tear. The dash ac now freezes us out! After reading some of the post I have to pick up a spare belt.

so some thoughts from a hvac guy- Have your ac charge checked- its very important- The air conditioner compressor has oil in it. That oil will travel through the system and return with the Freon, but if you system is low on charge, there is not enough velocity / volume of Freon to bring the oil back to the compressor. The the compressor runs out of oil and you know what happens next.

I went through the Camp Freightliner class recently and the three must have spare parts are, the serpentine belt, fuel filter and fuel water separator. The facilitator recommended sealing the again I a vacuum sealed bag like "Food Saver".

Also get the amber bowl for the bottom of the water separator. It's plastic and can break from road debris. Also it makes it easier to change the separator when needed. Put the extra bowl on new separator so you don't lose much fuel while changing. remove the extra from old separator and keep on ziplock. Makes changing it much easier.
