Basement air repairs

Finally got the only shop in my area that works on basement air to work on the unit. They removed it and I took the coach back home: 3 days. Now they are looking for a new compressor (#1). Any thoughts out there for a source? I'm told since they stopped making the units 2 years ago, parts are getting hard to find. The weather is great, we are still camping, using the gas furnace on cool mornings. Man, that thing is noisy.

RVP (Mfr) 316-832-4357/3468; or Lichtsinn 800-343-6255. Have Model Nr & Serial Nr of basement air unit available. RVP re-started making the units again, but with R-410, and only compatible with 50 Amp service . Parts still available.

Basement air repairs

Thanks. I thought parts were still available, and had read on this site about the new 50-amp units, but sometimes its more politic not to shoot down the repair guy, at least until he proves himself as not reliable.

Our local AC guy didn't want to take the time to locate parts so we made an agreement.

I found and purchased a new exact replacement compressor from here:


Delivery was timely, rest of installation went well.

Good Luck

Like many other Winnie owners, I had a roof air installed to supplement my inadequate basement air! It's the best thing I ever did!

Many posts about this over in the Winnebago forum at RVForum.net

We have an ultimate ; Being carefull about where we park and keep the shades drawn on the sunny side The basement air has perfurmed Well Altho they claim 10 degree drop It seems we were more in the 17 + degree drop; Keep the doors closed; keep the windows closed; keep the Vents closed; We try to park in/near a shade spot; It will perform. very well, If you say well we need fresh air and open a window and run a vent fan; IT WILL NOT WORK; Life is good.
