2000 Monaco heater core

Has anyone ever replaced their heater core, or know how? Or maybe a link to some information site? When I bought ours used, I knew it would need one because it was disconnected. I do all my own maintenance to a certain level and know I can do this, just would like some directions or instructions. I know a lot of people don't bother to replace this item and run the coach furnace, but I would really like mine fixed.
Thanks
Keith

See if this will help. I purchased a subscription to Alldatadiy and Chilton. Between the two I changed my power steering pump on my 97 Ford F53. If the pic does show let me know. Don't know if it this work for you but the above subscription might help for anyone that works on their own engine and chassis

Look on the unit itself and see if there is a manufacturer and model number to see if you can contact them for a schematic on how it is assembled. It would be best if the heater core can be removed from the out side, assuming you have access to it. If the dash has to be removed you will have a job cut out for you.

The unit will have the AC condenser & heater core & fan with housing and baffle assembly that diverts air through each of these. Hopefully the heater core is easily accessible but my guess is that it is not.

Just changed a heater core in a 1989 GMC suburban and it was a PITA, had to disassemble from the cab side. The plastic duct work and housing were initially installed as a unit with no way of taking apart without removing the whole dash. I had to cut a large rectangular hole to get to the heater core and then I had to makeshift a way to hold everything back together.

Your question is far too broad. You didn't specify which Monaco; Gas or DP, and who made the chassis?. If your coach is a gas, it might be based on the GM step-van chassis like my Safari Trek. My heater core was inside a plastic housing on the outside of the firewall. The housing is thermoplastic which means it can be re-melted, so I used the blade from an electric soldering iron to cut an access hole in the heater core housing and was able to remove and replace the core relatively easily and tape the housing piece back in place. If you have the right gas chassis, a heater core replacement may be found here: https://www.millsupply.com/stepvan-parts/
