[QUOTE=George Weiss;. Several years ago I had the King repaired by a referral from King
Thanks for the offer, but no need to search your records. I have been in contact with Steve Boler several times over the years; as recently as November 1 when my King Control failed. Steve has closed down his business due to lack of repair parts. He has shut down his website.
So now, the only solution for a failed KC 2600 is to replace the unit with an air, hydraulic, or cable throttle system.
The KC 2600 was installed in about 6000 mid 1990's motorhomes including 1998 and 1999 Alpines.
I am collecting parts to convert to an air throttle.
Parts are expensive, some are scarce and very hard to find. In the meantime I am using a 40 ft length of parachute cord, small pulley, carabiners, 4 ft section of 1/2 inch Pex to operate the throttle. It works surprisingly well.
Two owners in Texas with failed KC 2600's have developed a kit including brackets and instructions for converting to an air throttle.
If you know any other Alpine, Monaco, Foretravel, or Country Coach owners who have the King Controls 2600 they should be alerted before they have a failure.
I will be posting their information in the Alpine Owners Association Library if I can figure out how.
