Send a message via Yahoo to frederick w
A/C, and Heat Strips ?

I looked at a 97 Monaco Dynasty. The owner said it had Heat Strips in the A/C? Not sure if I said this right.

What do the heat strips do? Is this an option on Monacos?
Advantage, disavantage?

Thanks in advance.

It is an option on certain Dometic ACs. They can be used to take the chill off but will not substitute for a furnace. I believe they are 1500 watts each so it takes a while to be affective.

my 96 Dynasty has factory installed heat strips in each AC unit. The strip is just a tubular shaped coil that gets warm and the blower air passes over it and picks up heat. Similar to a hair dryer
As stated by AZ...they will take the chill off....they don't work well for actual heating

But they do work when it`s cold, and heat pumps don`t -- Bill Willard
