Replace Heater Core

I have a 1998 Holiday Rambler Vacationer. The previous owner removed the heater core because it was leaking. I purchased a new heater core, but can't find any pictures or schematics.

Holiday Rambler said they don't have any records from when Monaco owned the brand.

Anyone have a suggestion.

thanx

Not sure if this will help you but allot of the motorhomes from that era used the "Evans" cooling and heating systems. Not familiar with the Holiday Rambler so not sure if they used it. If they did there should be a large black cover in the underhood compartment on the upper passenger side of the firewall. That cover will have to be removed to install the new heater core. I have changed a few myself on Triple e and I think Newmar motorhomes. I will tell you right now it is not a fun job as access to the far left side screws is usually very limited. It has been awhile since I changed one but you should be able to see where it goes when the cover is off. Hope this helps



Cheers

I guess it all starts with identifying the air box manufacturer. bkrahn mentioned Evans. The box in mine is Acme. From there you can search topics and find specific help.

When mine needed replacing I was lucky to find this topic: http://www.irv2.com/forums/f104/2003...al-151074.html

I actually ended up cutting the air box on mine as there was no space to get to the air box without removing a ton of items and even then it would have been really a difficult repair. Cutting the box made the job relatively easy: http://www.irv2.com/forums/f23/big-m...ml#post4446702

You better hope it's not Evan Tempcon. Replacing mine. It is a combo unit sandwiched heater & air conditioner. $400 for parts only.

Hello, I have a 1997 3601 Triple E Empress. My heater core also started leaking. After a day of searching for a replacement I called Triple E to find out the maker of the core. Not only did they know the maker but they still have them in stock along with instructions. The service manager even took the time to explain what I had to do to remove the bad one. Two Thumbs up and 5 Stars. Thank you Triple E.

For what it is worth, I just took my heater core and AC evaporator assembly off my 2004 wrecked Camelot. It is attached with only four nuts and was easy to remove after disconnecting the two AC hoses, the two heater core hoses and unplugging the wiring from the unit. Not sure if yours is the same, but I am attaching some pictures for your reference to help out if it is the same. The SCS plastic box is all broken up and the AC Evaporator is damaged/leaking. I am replacing the whole shooting match with a complete used unit from Visone for $350.
