Somebody help please..discontinued compressors for Winnebago tour motorhome

Got a 2010 Winnebago tour in jan 2013,, 32,000 miles on it...used it twice...one of the two air conditioning compressors broke...88 degrees in there. Camping world says they can't get one because it was discontinued ..in 2011 I think,,,said they are having to change to rooftop units,,however they said for the forty foot length we would need three units and only a place for one unit on top....Coleman made the compressors.....seems we are stuck with a large mortgage on something we can't even use during the summer....very upset...or is camping world giving us the run around? Also, how can they discontinue parts on something that new? We have only used it twice and it costs more than our house did! Somebody pls help!

Call Winnebago customer service with your coach number and ask for their advise. CW in many locations is substandard. They have many coaches running around with basement air units and I assume they can help you. Most 40' coaches with roof top air units have 2 not 3.

Call a reputable Air conditioner company in your area. The unit in your basement bay is repairable. You have a compressor, A fan to move the air into and about the MH. Worst case scenario is you might have to replace the compressor part. in all likely hood the valve that switches your heat pump from heat mode to cool mode has gone bad. Many repair shops say "your unit is bad and you have to buy a New whatever. Don't be a victim, Your unit is the same as many in stick houses. yours just happens to have wheels. safe travels.. ed

Last year I had one compressor seize up. When I called Airxcel and ordered one($400+) they indicated they had 300+ in stock. I had my residential HVAC do the repair once I pulled the unit out of the basement.

I have seen the Colman rooftop AC's sold everywhere. There is not any recalls on Colman AC units I'm award of.

Maybe you should try contacting Colman directly with this issue?

I have an Itasca 36rd motor home. The heat and A/C stopped working. Took to camper world spent 200$ to have them diagnose the problem. They said that it was a problem with the heater would cost 2700$ to repair. I did not want to do it then since we were on the road and did not have anywhere to stay for the 2-3 days they said it would take. Finally got to sons house and took it to the nearest freight liner dealer. Took them about an hour to find the short that was causing the problem. Total bill 250$. It always pays to get more than one opinion.

Listen to these folks. Get someone truly qualified to check your unit to identify the problem.

And run, run, run away from Camping World. From my experience with their service department, I would not let them change a spark plug in my lawn mower.

Find a trustworthy heating and a/c contractor and have him take care of it, your rv air is much like a residential system. I am in the hvac bus. And my rv unit is no different it all works the same.

some one said Call a reputable Air conditioner company in your area. The unit in your basement bay is repairable this is the truth and well not cost to much

you do not have the wiring in the roof and all the moods it would take to install it would cost to much

There are still companies selling the whole unit and I think the posters on here have given you the right advice
call winnebago and talk to them. I do notice that on the website they talk about you can use both compressors even on an 30 amp electrical service. The tour has a power management that shuts off other appliances as necessary and lets the compressors run till coach is cooled down. It does look a bit like 2010 was the last year they might have used it. here is a website to go look at

There is a long thread in the winnabago forum here about your problem search yruair #2 compressor failure I can't seem to copy and paste for you with my phone. Some had issues with start capacitor and others with t stat I recommend you read it before doing anything.
