AC help/referral needed near Disney World,FL

On vacation, need help....in Fl at Disney World. Can anyone recommend an independent or company that does road service; we have a penguin ll a/c hp 15k that is not working properly, tried to get resolved before we left Atlanta but ran out of time; now we are at WDW with only the rear 13k unit working. We plan on having someone come out to take a look at the unit but have no perevious experience with any company or independent in the area. Any advise would be appreciated, it's hot. Thanks everyone!!!!

Just a thought... the front 15k air in my previous Hurricane stopped working on me one day, and would only make a click noice when turned on (you didn't define not working properly). Turned out to be the breaker at the generator was thrown. Until then, I didn't even know that the breakers on the generator could stop the AC while other things appeared to work. Later discovered that we couldn't run the microwave and front AC at the same time. The best thing was that the problem was quickly and easily resolved without costing a dime. I hope that your situation turns out to be equally easy and free.

Were you running the AC on generator at the time? That's the only way what you described makes sense.

I believe the OP is on shore power. I would think that a tripped breaker at the generator wouldn't matter if on shore power.

Ask the folks at WDW. Last Sept our neighbor had a problem with his and the desk folks got them some help really fast. Did a great job for a reasonable price too.

COuld be a problem with something other than an AC unit.

Great catch... didn't think about that one. A DUH moment for me.

Having replaced one of these myself, getting a "mobile" repair is going to be interesting, as you need to get 100lbs+ or not-easily-grabbed AC unit about 12' high to the top of your RV. I had to do it with a pulley system.

A mobile tech should be able to tell you if the unit is dead - or if it's control related. If the unit needs "service" then generally you'll be replacing $600-$700 cost (est) based on internet purchase price. Installation is literally 30 minutes after getting the unit on to the roof.

I dunno if that helps or not...

Email Chris at chris@bryantrv.com
He is excellent and probably couldn't get to your unit for a couple of weeks..always a backlog due to his reputation.
He is located in Deland, FL about 45 minutes north of you via I-4.
He may be able to at least recommend someone reputable. Here is the link to his website which has a ton of troubleshooting info on it. Bryant RV Services

WDW and disaster strikes

Believe me, I've been there, done that...

First trip to WDW had to hire a diesel tow to tow to Cummins N Orlando...big bucks...the trees in WDW are unbelievable and difficult to work a wrecker around

Next trip the black water tank cracked....yeecch .....patched it myself.

Two years ago a tree fell on neighboring TT and crushed the guy's roof. Some RV neighbors and I helped the guy patch the roof with rolls of duct tape and one sticky roofing rolls I had.

There is a Camping World in Kissimmee on FL192 that might be able to do the work.... Probably 20 mi to WDW. You might be able to drop the RV and enjoy WDW and pick up later same day.

There is Lazy Days and a new Camping World in Seffner, Fl near Tampa (about 70 mi w of WDW)....

If they can't help, try Eagle's Pride RV repair in the Great Outdoors Campground in Titusville (75 mi NE) of WDW. Talk to Mike the owner and explain your timetable.

It always happens on vacation.

Camping Connection is on 192 about 6 or 8 miles west of Fort Wilderness. They have mobile service trucks inside Disney almost everyday. They usually have a backlog but you can give them a call and find out.

There are at least 2 or 3 other mobile RV guys working out of their trucks that I have seen at Fort Wilderness also.

Go to the Reception Outpost and ask them if they have a list.

Good Luck

We full time in Kissimmee. There are a few local mobile repair folks around. We have had good service from Camping Connection and Master RV Mobile Services (407) 348-0862. As far as Lazy Days goes, I had some warranty work done on our camp site. They subbed that out to Camping Connection.
