CAC

Looks like we have a "handle" on the lost panel. 'Thanks" to all of you who responded.

New problem:
It appears that the CAC is leaking air. Does anyone know of a source to find a replacemen?

I see from your profile you have a 2000-38'
iirc your CAC is the assembled type, i.e. has two gasketed end sections which bolt together to the finned section; the end sections have the tube-connections molded in.
Several Alpiner's have had the gaskets go bad, and some have even found a number of the small machine bolts (might be allen-head type) loose such that tightening them resolved their leak. Have you tried that?

If that doesn't work, check out these Search results for "CAC Replacement": Link1, Link2, Link3, Link4 for more info

Mike, Thanks for your suggestions about the CAC on my coach. I showed the suggestions you made to my mechanic, and he thinks the CAC in my motor home could be set up differently than you suggested.

CAC core size is
24 inches by 38.5 inches.

One 4 inch inlet
One 4 inch outlet

The CAC is mounted vertically outside the radiator.
The air leaks are where the core is welded to the tank. (see attached picture)

Do you have any other suggestions based on this information? Did WRV make a change in the design of the CAC in newer models?
