This is my first post on iRV2. My wife and I just survived a harsh case of Covid and while we were in the hospital (we shared an ICU room which we called the Honeymoon Suite), we collectively decided to buy a motorhome. We had not heard the word Coach before until we went to buy one. So with just that statement, it's obvious we know very little about RV's, Coaches, Trailers, etc.
We ended up buying a 2005 American Tradition from a guy in Las Vegas. The owner was terminally ill and in fact, passed away on the day we closed on the motorhome, God Rest his soul. We had done a pre-buy inspection so we thought we knew all that was needed to step into the coach and get started on our first of many adventures.
We were told the A/C blower was in-op and figured how hard could that be? I had read a few posts on this site, groups.io and a few others. From what I read, the symptoms I observed in our coach could be repaired by either the connections within the wiring harness under the entry steps or the fuse behind the dash.
Driving home to Huntington Beach from Las Vegas in August without A/C stressed how important it is to get the dash A/C working as soon as possible. Saying the 116 degree temperature while passing through Baker, CA was a bit uncomfortable is an understatement.
The blower itself had been disassembled by the prior owner. We have no one to explain to us how to reassemble the unit. It appears to be pretty straight forward but a picture depicting how it should look would be helpful. Here are a few pictures, of the bay below the driver's seat, of what it looks like now.
There are, of course, other items needing repair, and future items to be found later, which I will post separate from this post but I thought it best to start with one item at a time.
Coming up in the near future will be the inverter/battery charging set up and the resets to get that operating the way is should. Also, the rats next of wires behind the dash (possibly contributing to the A/C Blower situation)
Thanks to all in advance for your help. I'm sure I'll have many posts in the future to talk about, and hopefully, as I learn the nuances of RV ownership, I'll be piping in with many solutions for others on this forum.
