Greetings from New Mexico

I just picked up a 96 Minnie Winnie with only 24000 miles on it for a smoking deal. This is my first motorhome and I am looking forward to using it A LOT. It has some issues that I have to fix but its well worth it. It needs a new AC unit I think cause when I torn on the AC it kills the generator. I think its locked up or something. The motorhome sat for a long time.

I look forward to talking to everyone on here and sharing knowledge (although I think I'll be taking more then giving for a while).

Try to gain access to the unit and spray well with WD40, let it stand for a while before trying it. Good luck. My home one did that this year. I sprayed it then assisted by turning the fan, all seems well now.

Howdy and welcome to the forum. Sure you glad you joined us. Give the capacitor a check on the A/C it could be bad. Good luck and hope you get it working. Hope to see you down the road.

Welcome to the forum. Had an AC that did that and replaced the start capacitor. Worked fine after that.

Thanks for the good ideas.

@ MSHappyCampers - I didnt ask a question, just telling about my new rig... but if I do ask a question I'll make sure to put it in the appropriate section.
