Fleetwood Flair electric problem

1992 Fleetwood Flair dash A/C problem
Good Morning all, I am new to this site.

I have a problem and 2 mechanics can not figure out. I am looking for the Magnetic clutch relay for the dash A/c. The compressor will not turn on. I really need my dash A/C to work I am going to Florida to take 5 adopted children to Disney and I can not count on the generator to run the other A/C because it has failed so many times. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

Is the problem finding the part, or that you don't know what's wrong (you said 2 mechanics can't figure it out). The dash a/c is a pretty standard automtive unit, with the compressor and such supplied as part of the chassis and the dash plumbing, control valves, etc. supplied by the RV builder. Most RV manufacturers used Evans Tempco components for the dash and a HVAC controller from some Ford or GM vehicle.

They have taken the dash and some of the front engine apart. They can not locate the fuse box or the magnetic clutch relay. I have called fleetwood and they sent me drawings of the wiring but it does not match the coach. Looking for other ideas of were it could be hiding...

Thank you

In cases like this, a good shop would just install a new relay (under $20) and a new wire from the dash (splicing into existing wiring) to the new relay. Much less expensive and time consuming then tearing apart the engine and dash.

I'd recommend another shop or a mechanical friend.
