Dash A/C Condensor and fan location.

Greetings
I have a 1998 American Tradition with Cummins 8.3 300 hp engine. I am trying to locate the dash A/C condenser and fan. My High side pressure is at 350 and I hear no fan. Checked the A/C relay and it clicks. Any help locating the unit would be very helpful.
Thanks

Can't speak directly for American Coach location.

On the two Fleetwood's on Freightliner XC chassis that I have owned, the condenser and fan unit is located just in front of the front axle under the coach. Fans can often be replaced with ones from local auto parts stores.

The condenser fan is under the coach, just behind front axle.

Fuse for fan willl be under dash panel in front of steering wheel. There should be a fuse box diagram label on bottom side of the panel.

Never seen them behind axle. Wow, what a pain to work on there.

Thanks everyone. I found it behind the generator about a 1/3rd the way back from under the drivers sear area. What a stupid place to put it. Almost impossible to get at. Thanks again for the ideas.

We have the same coach!!
My condenser fan is not coming on either, I checked the fuses but that wasn't it. A replacement from REV is $276.35, I found some 16 inch pusher fans on Amazon for under 50 bucks. But same as you it will be a bear to get under there and replace it.

If your sure fan motor is bad, you should be able to remove it, take it to NAPA or somewhere it can be looked up by a part number that may be on it, and get one

Before removing it, I'd be sure to check for power at connector at motor..... perhaps even rig up a few wires from a battery to see if you can get it to run before removing it.

It's a little tight under the coach, but doable.

It's tight and I'm a little fat which doesn't make a good combination! I want to drive it to work so we can use a jack and stands, I really don't want that big rig coming down on me.
