Mine has always worked great. Just drove 3210 mile Calf-Nev-Utah-Colo-NMex-Araz-Nev-Cal in temps 95-111 used the dash air when on the rode never turned on the gen and house air. Only ran the fan on hi two or three times-four speed fan used #3 most of the time. Dash air is gooooood.

When the outside temp is about 90 or so I turn off the dash air, start the generator and use the house AC. Dash air seems to work pretty good but not sufficient for keeping the entire interior of the RV comfortable. House air does.

The dash air on my Scepter works great. Takes a while to actually cool down the space if it's been sitting in the sun though. Once the initial heat is cracked, it works like a champ going down the road.

Mine works fine. It didnt work well when I first got the coach. Found that the fuse for the condenser cooling fan was missing.

Max, I am one that has no dash air? Seems like there are only a few of us? 007, where is this valve located on a diesel pusher?

Mine works great, and I think that's awesome for a 17 year old rig. The previous owners kept impeccable records, and there's no mention of it ever being worked on. With only 60k miles on it, I'm hopeful that it will be good for a long time to come

My AC blew the condenser/compressor fuse a few times over the years. Last week it blew and immediately blew the replacement when turned on. I repaired the AC blower motor which is on the side of the RV next to the engine. Not the dash fan. It needed one can of freon to get back to full capacity.

So if you have a large fan on the side (rear radiator engine), make sure the fan is running when the AC is on.

When I picked up my coach the belt was off and the compressor was frozen. I'm still trying to get it running. I think that when these things break no one fixes them due to parts availability. I have been a mechanic for 35 years and was stunned at how hard it was to find parts for this. The compressor is a r12 universal unit that is not made anymore. The cold cut valve and expansion valve I found at Evens Tempcon (there receiver dryer is the wrong part and has to go back) I had to find a dryer at Napa by matching up pictures in a book, it's from a 92 Dodge Caravan. and the cycling switch is from a 93 Ford Probe.

Just returned from a 2838 mile western trip. Not cold. Just cool. I added refrigerent but didn't make a difference. I guess I'll need to look at that valve to see if it was installed wrong.

2000 Discovery works fine. My other coaches would leak freon if we didn't use them for a while. We just bought a few cans of freon with dispenser, from Auto Zone and put some in as needed. We were told that because of the long distance that the freon has to travel on a diesel the new freon dissipates faster. (Use it or lose it).
