Speaking of Coleman...we have a '99 Damon DayBreak with a ducted Coleman MachIII...works great, doesn't drip. Wish I had it right now...stinkin' Dometic products are killing us.

Dometic Air Conditioner

Thank you for placing the Dometic Service Bulletin on this Forum!
I have a 2014 Columbus 340RK which we bought used last spring. We winter in lower Texas and it was the first time we used our air conditioners. Our main unit runs but doesn't cool at all. Our bedroom unit cools but sounds like a freight train, so loud we can't sleep!
I copied this Service bulletin in an email to Dometic along with pictures of the corrosion on the coils and they are going to replace the unit. I just have to pay the service call.

I found mine on a sticker inside the return air duct accessible by removing the air filter.

Suggestion

I created a small spreadsheet for all the appliances in my unit. It contains all pertinent info. Some was provided on a scribbled sheet by the dealer, but much was collected from the actual appliance data tag. This a project that can easily be accomplished on a lazy afternoon at the campground. I have make, model #, serial #, mfg date ( if available) and any other important data. I have a copy on phone and in TT. This way if I need a part or have to check a SB or recall, I don't have to uncover and scramble in the heat or cold.

5th a/c unit in just over 2 years

our 2015 Coachman Freedom Express RKS 246 is now at the dealership and getting it's 5th new a/c. We finally convinced them in August of last year after having 3 different 13500 units, to install the larger 15000 Dometic. So, everything was working fine until we left for a trip in late June. When we got to the campground it appeared not to be cooling after several hours. Granted, it was probably in the mid 90s so we assumed it would just take some time. Luckily it rained and we shut the unit off. When we turned it back on (it was now at least 15 degrees cooler outside) it finally cooled down that night and was ok for the next 2 days. We get home, plug it into the outlet we had installed for it under our rv carport. (yes, the outlet is fine and has been tested) We set the temp at about 87 just to basically keep the moisture out. We'd been in and out of it over the last weeks and everything seemed to be fine until a few days ago. Noticed it was staying on and not cooling. Turned it down to 80 and still not cooling. Hubby bought a tool to test the temp coming out of the vents and it was 85 even when we had the thermostat turned down to 78. So, it went back today. The dealership as been great about replacing them all under warranty but this is ridiculous. I've emailed the owner of the dealership back in Feb of last year when we insisted on a larger unit, which we finally got in August of last year. We really thought this would fix the problem. Hubby wants to change it out for a Coleman but the dealership doesn't handle those. Sounds like we'd have to take it to Camping World and not sure we want to do that after seeing all the issues about their service. I'm glad to have found this forum and I am going to share it with hubby to see if we should show it to the service people at the dealership.

X2.
Another thing I did was go online and download owners and service manuals for everything in my unit. I store them on my laptop and don't need to have the dealer supplied manuals with me if I want to research anything while at home away from my TT. You can use a tablet also, but I don't think a phone has enough storage space. I find it helpful if you want to copy some of the useful things you will come across on the forums.
