Both Roadmaster and Beaver are defunct brands, so not likely to get much help there. Allied Specialty Vehicles now owns the brand names for both and probably will answer the phone, but neither brand is being produced, nor have they been for a couple years.

Have you tried Allied Recreational Group in Coburg,Or? They are a service ctr for Monaco, Safari, HR, and may even work on Beavers since you probably have a Roadmaster Chassis? Call 1-80-509-3417 and check??

In 2008 parts like this were most likely the same across the high-line models from not only the Beaver brand, but Monaco and Holiday Rambler as well. Those brands' Yahoo groups should also be consulted.

I have long been a fan of products built on the Roadmaster S-Series chassis. It would influence my recommendations if there were a single irreplaceable part that would render the coach useless if it were damaged.

This also calls into question the widely held conventional wisdom that one shouldn't worry about buying an orphan coach as no parts are proprietary. Or, if they are, can be easily remanufactured.

My guess, however, is that it will be possible to find a place that repairs circuit boards that can repair this part. Start an internet search for auto or RV circuit board repair. And post on all the Yahoo groups.

FYI...I did the things you suggest and worked with the folks that sell Beaver parts in OR trying to help the OP out. There is no replacement part for this CCM, it's obsolete. Thought there was a Ver 2 and suggested a supplier to contact. OP contacted and found out there was not. The other problem is since Allied took over any schematics and diagrams are no longer in existence. So the only fix is to find one in a salvage yard. Hasn't happened yet.

All the part numbers are listed...help yourself, I'm sure the OP would appreciate it if you are able to find one.

What about a company, unrelated to RVs that specialize in repairing obsolete circuit boards? Surely such businesses exist. Has the OP contacted any to see if a rebuild is possible?

It's unlikely that part was manufactured by Monaco, especially given they didn't have EE's on staff. Someone should know who actually manufactured the module. See if you can find them.

At the very least try to find a wiring diagram that identifies the wires attached to the module. It really should be possible to replicate most functions with standard switches. Ones that might be a bit tricky could be things like the windshield wipers. There was likely a control circuit in that module for speed and intermittent wiper functions. It's not time to throw in the towel.
