Went inside after we first arrived and one had vibrated off during the trip.
Obviously back to the dealer for the A/C, but anyone figured out how to remedy the blind problem?
I've got a 17FQ and found that the AC thermostat wouldn't go low enough for my tastes - even at it's lowest setting it would turn off the compressor when the interior still felt warm to me. Not to mention the fan would continue to run.
So I replaced the control board and added an external wall mounted thermostat. Now in even 95 degree weather I can get the interior down to the mid 60's if I want. And I can set it so that the fan turns off when the set temp is reached.
After all that effort I ran across a Youtube video that shows how to adjust the OEM thermostat to allow for much lower settings. Apparently there is an adjustment screw.
On mine the blinds are more like shades that have two string configurations on each side. The strings are secured at the bottom by round clear plastic clamps that are screwed into the wall. My shades would never stay up until I figured out I had to take the slack out of the strings by pulling them tight while holding the plastic clamp so I didn't pull it out of the wall.
