so i took delivery of my new salem cruise lite 262bhxl on tuesday this week . the walk through went well and i understood a lot of it being a camper for years .
so my plan was to bring it home load it up and go out wed morning , well i got it home at noon and started loading it up and got everything in by 3 not where it goes just in the trailer so i thought well i think i will go out now and organize at the campground .
then i started finding problems .
1 . siding was loose and came out of its upper groove for about 5 feet . not to bad of fix .
2 . metal in the way so the deadbolt work properly on the side door to the bath another easy fix
3. bath door plunger needed set deeper to keep from rubbing .
4 . the factory plugged the componet video leads into the input of the dvd player and not the output
5. found loose nuts on the side frame braces .
6 . and this was the worst !! tuesday when i got there i turned the AC on and after about three hours i thought man it just does not seam to be cooling well ? it was very hot so i let it go and by evening it was cooling ok because the sun stopped baking the trailer .
next morning i left and when i came back it was nice and cool but as the day got hotter i could hear the compressor kicking on and off about every 30 sec ? and could not get it below 80 in the trailer . i started to diagnose the problem and found the compressor was over heating , i could move the heat protector switch off the compressor and it would stay running but got supper hot and blew the breaker
so the next morning i called the service guy and told him what was going on , he said ya it sounds like the compressor is burning up and he could look at it next week ! sorry but it is hot now and this trailer is two days old . he said if you wanted to you can pull the unit off and bring it in for a new one , so i did it was very easy .
took it in and he gave me a brand new unit
got back to my campsite and installed the new ac and boom !!! back up and running . about three hours from taking the old one down and getting the new one back up .
now can i relax after two days of fixing stuff
the trailer is very nice and i like it a lot just some things got overlooked and im hoping for a relaxing weekend ? fingers crossed .
