On our way to Florida and NO heater

Ever want to want to experience real cold. Try driving in the winter with no dash heater. Left yesterday morning at sunlite from central Ohio heading to Florida. After about 4 hours of driving the dash heater just stopped working. Called Fleetwood and was told where the fuse was located. Stopped at the next rest area and found a working fuse. We are currently sitting in the lounge at Tom Johnsons RV in Charlotte NC waiting to hear what they found. They were very receptive to getting us in and checking it out
Wish us luck
Oh yea, running the coach heater did a good job of heating the coach but didn't do much to nothing for heating the driver and wife... :(

Is it the blower that is not working? or is it blowing cold air?

No blower, no power to the heat/air controls.
Tech has checked and so far no idea why no power
No defroster is a real problem...

Hi RonK,
What's happening? A hard failure of a 12 VDC appliance should not be that hard to diagnose.

Tom Johnsons is about 5 miles from my house. If you are still there & need anything, I may be able to send you in the right direction. I work all weekend but I am only a PM away.

After an exasperating (for the tech) 8 hours he found the problem to be on the back side of the fuse block. The support at American Coach kept telling him that the fuse block could not be the problem...... but he found the connection on the backside of the block where the 30 amp fuse is located, was not connected. Once he resolved that we now have a functioning heater.
I want to tell all we really appreciate the support of everyone here.
Yes, Tom Johnsons is great, and we got to use a really comfortable waiting room. Brendon, our service advisor, kept us updated and even Jason, the tech, came to talk to us twice during the day. Brendon called us today to check up on the heating system just to make sure everything is functioning properly.
We are now in St Augustine and going to have a looong glass of wine and watch a movie this evening.

Thanks again everyone!!

That had to be an expensive day and you have had some miserable times lately but Florida is pretty now. You may need to knock off the chill at night but it's sunny at least.

Glad you're back in business.

However, that old saying once again is proven to be true;

"That which cannot possibly be the problem, usually is the problem."
