We did a two night trip and 300+ miles in our RV this weekend and only had a few issues. Has anyone encountered any of these and have advice?

1) During load on the engine, Ford E-450, the A/C quits blowing out the normal vents and starts coming out the defrost and heater vents by your feet. When the load returns to normal so does the direction of the air. The air is always ice cold.

2) Twice the slide needed a little helping push to starting going out. Never had a problem coming in.

3) Some water is dripping from the outside access to the hot water heater, more like condensation. Drips down the side of the RV. This only happens when the hot water is on.

All in all a pretty successful first run. In two weeks I will try it pulling my Rzr trailer.

This could get addictive!

1. System has a check valve which keeps vacuum from equalizing when accelerating. see diagram; https://www.google.com/search?q=ford+E+4........sASf9IHQBQ&ved=0CCIQsAQ&biw=1366&bih=622

2. Slide motor a little weak. Keep lubed.

3. Pressure valve on Hot Water heater. Mine dripped occasionally for 3 yrs. Hurt nothing.

J-D,

Only happens on a long hard pull for the most part.

I've got a call in to a Ford dealership to see what they say. I suspect leaking vacuum line as well.

It's not a huge deal for the moment but I don't want to lose cab A/C during a 2500 mile drive, even with a backup plan of using the house A/C. But then again, I leave in three weeks and if like one person mentioned, this is about removing the dash to get access to the lines and could be 20 hrs labor, then what are the odds this thing would be ready in three weeks? And finally, the big trip was supposed to include me pulling our Rzr, which I had planned on 6/20th as a test trip for that. Timing is everything!

I will follow your advice on the repost with a different title if the Ford dealership leaves me lacking.

Thanks,

Kurt


Kurt
