Countryfit, I bought my replacement desiccant air filter/dryer at a local HDT repair shop.

Air dryer

COUNTRYFIT,

The dryer on my coach is on the driver side just ahead of the rear end. It is rather large so hard to miss, but is up high bolted to the frame.

Thank you all. I will check local truck shops...
Bill, your 99 CC Allure should be in the same or very close layout with 00 intrigue's, I will go check it there.

thanks to everyone who shedded light on this!
CountryFit,

Did you order and replace the dryer cartridge? Did CC say anything about replacing the whole Bendix AD-IP dryer assembly as opposed to replacing just the cartridge?

Thanks,

hi dave, i have not gotten a chance to replace mine yet. i think the replacement for my chassis is the cartridge - if you google "Bendix AD-IP 109493X", you will see it's an enclosed cartridge, just like the shape of a spin-on fram oil filter. once you take the old one out, this should be a plug-n-play. i called my local hd truck supplies they all have it.
good luck.

Thanks, CountryFit.

What I meant was, did Country Coach say anything about replacing the whole air dryer as in the image below:



Or just the complete cartridge/can assembly as in the following image:



I e-mailed Country Coach and "Tech1", Gregg, suggested replacing the cartridge 109493X and the "Updated Purge Kit". Scanning a couple of trucker forums brought up discussions on the merits of replacing the whole dryer versus the can-plus-purge-kit-etc. One rationale says that they have to remove the dryer to put in the purge kit and that the labor puts the cost near replacing the whole dryer unit.

If one goes the whole replacement route there's quite a difference in weight, therefore shipping charges. And then there's core charges and refunds to consider. Then there's rebuilt versus new.

Please keep us posted on what you decide and I'll do the same.

Best,

dave, got it... at the time, i talked with gregg, he only said replacing the cartridge, didn't mention the updated purge kit (since then cc has implemented a policy of charging tech advice on the phone. if you need to do it now, you might want to call your local heavy truck parts dealers they might have all so you don't have to pay bulky shipping fees. i called couple of them, they all have both cartridge and complete assembly. considering core charge, buying them locally makes sense. i asked one what were most people buying on that, he said some just bought the cartridge, some bought the whole thing... so hard to say.
i am on a trip now. when i get back home in late sept, i will do it. will let you know how it turns out.

CountryFit,

Yeah, I wish we had a selection of truck parts/repair places. We're near the end of the line and the places that handle these kinds of parts and do this kind of service are very pricey. I'll probably wind up waiting until we're on our winter trip to Phoenix and have it done along the way.

Enjoy your trip!

CAT changed mine yesterday in Irving (Dallas) TX and I watched from the back of the coach. Guy did it on a creeper with no jacks. Guess I should add the cartridge was changed-not the whole unit.

thanks that was what's in my mind. the reason it needs to be changed periodically is the desiccant, which loses absorbing function over time. i tend to believe changing the cartridge should suffice unless other parts are corroded or damaged.

I have a Tradewinds LTC with the 330 Cat and it uses the Haldex unit. I got the parts online and had a local rv shop do the work for $85 an hour. They put it on the rack and pulled the whole unit down,cleaned it all up on the bench,it was pretty bad, replaced all the parts and had it back up in 45 minutes. He also checked the heater coil and found it bad. I ordered another and installed it myself later. While he was under the rig,the tech checked it out and gave me a list of small things that should be done with a priority check off.
They also said that after a bit of time those units should be completely replaced,but mine was ok for now.
Another item from the servicing is that the manual dump valve on the airbags was sticking open when raising the MH after being parked and had to be flipped several times before closing all the way and now it's usually closing the first time almost every time I move the coach.
