Thanks Gary for info on the AC group. Now the next question. The chassis disconnect switch. According to the manual it's located in engine compartment. On my 03 Eagle I can't find it. Can anyone give me a picture or details on location.

Thereís a good chance your 03 AE is same as my 02 AT. Switch is below the coolant surge tank, just to the left of the air cleaner indicator. Excuse the dust we just got back from a 4WD park.

Thanks Rob, great pics as well. Another item checked off my unknown or no documentation/ operating manual.
My next question. I have manual otd awning. Looking for the brand so I can download the operating manual. It has a spring lock mechanism
On the right side & the hand crank opening to the left.

Iíll look for a brand name on mine if that helps.

Just unhook the catch on the mechanism with the small black plastic handle on the right and pull down and swing back up forward and lock. This will slide the unit in its track forward over the door. (Sometimes the track gets a little corroded and a little hard to get it to slide). Then extend the telescoping crank handle that should be stored somewhere on the coach, and insert the hand crank and crank out until it extended. We donít use it very often.

I can take pictures of that showing how it cantilevers forward if necessary.

Absolutely love the Eagle. I did experence rust issues with our Tradition but I think a big factor in that was the use on Salted roadways.

American used both Carefree and Gerard brand awnings in those years. My '04 Trad had a Carefree manual over-door awning.
