New member 86 Fleetwood Prowler Regal 29Y

Just purchased the above mentioned 86 fleetwood 29Y. Daughter will be living in it so she can work part-time and finish up college on-line. I need to replace the blower motor in the 13,500 Duo Therm AC. I can get it to run for a day by shooting WD40 on the bearings and spinning it with my hand. It takes a 1/5 HP CCW 3450rpm{I think} motor. If anyone can tell me an inexpensive place to get one I would appreciate it. {not too important right now but will be important come summer time} Heater takes 3-4 "clicks" to start, is that bad??
I have almost all the documentation for this trailer, if anyone wants copies of the Owners Manual or something else please ask. Philharmonic

Better to totally replace roof actually unit rather than play with motor. Newer units weigh less and are more energy-efficient. Check Advent/Dometic/Colman prices online. I played with both Coleman and Dometic before I got Advent. Higher air output and a 30 degree temp drop from outside. And this is in AZ in an 87 Fleetwood Pace Arrow Y27. Heater may be another big issue tho. If it's a Suburban, check your combustion air in/out seals. You may be flirting with carbon monoxide poisoning otherwise.

New unit is not an option at the present, but I will do some research. I was pleased to realize that a replacement unit can be had for mine for around 500.00 nice.

I am assuming that the combustion chamber is a sealed unit itself and to "check the combustion seals" you mean to pull the cover and vents off on the outside of the trailer and the seals you are talking about will be apparent. Thanks for that. Philharmonic

The quickest way to check is have someone stand outside at night and shine a flashlight in the combustion vents. If seals are bad, you can see the light from flashlight from inside in the heater compartment. Seals aren't real expensive but VITAL to keep out CO. But if seals are bad, you really should have furnace given a pro-grade exam. When they get as old as yours (or mine), you really shouldn't take any chances. And having a pro check it over is a he'll of a lot cheaper than hospital bill (or worse).

BTW, and before I forget it, get a quality surge unit for your electrical. Even if you don't have a DC converter setup to protect, you may have other electronics that will need it. They are a bit expensive but still a lot cheaper than the electrical/electronics you would have to replace.
