2014 Bus Fan Clutch

I'm interested in buying a new 2014 37AP Bus and am wondering how many owners with new Bus' have had problems with the radiator fan clutch?

You would get a faster answer on the tiffinrvnetwork.com. Although, there haven't been that many reported problems with the busses. Tiffin does have a new design which is being implemented now.

Well, here's a question we know well. We just had a 2014 45LP built, documented the whole process with time lapse video and blog posts.

We had a big fan clutch issue. Had us sitting at the Tiffin service center for a quite a while as we were pretty much stuck. We had gone through 3 fan clutches in less than 400 miles! You can read all about it here....

Starting on page 7 we talk about the fan clutch. The ending of the story is that we now have the new proto-type fan clutch and it is working beautifully. We are very happy with it and it is our understanding from talking with Gary Harris (whom we worked closely with for this issue) that they are going to start installing these new fan clutches in the buses in July 2014. Before that, it is our understanding that they have gone back to the older style fan clutches until then.
