DriVer, You are right, as usual, that is interesting reading. HOWEVER, there is some bad news for any of us who have Newmar coaches.

Quoting from the WCC website : " IMPORTANT - This kit should not be used on RV's that use an Evans Tempcon Evaporator assembly. The kit can only be used on RV's that have SCS or Denso evaporator. "

Newmar uses Evans-Tempcon. I know because I have one. I just looked at an 07 MADP and it had the same type unit as my 03 KSCA, so I'm assuming they use them across the line.

Any idea why the Crystal Air won't work with E-T units ?? ED

Mine must be the Evans Tempcon too. The box in mine says Evans and looks like the one in the ad "clk to enlarge". The output being not much less than 2 roof a/c should cool. The temps in the direct sun here were consistently 125 till yesterday. Today it was 112.

My dash air is cold enough, just needs more volume. Still trying to find the cfm of the dash blower fan in mine. I've been reluctant to get into the Evans box to find it and any markings on it. Any help on that?

Also waiting to see post from HMS Beagle who's mechanic was relocating the parts of his "stack".

Edit: Found pic of location of fan blower in relation to a/c box on Evans net site. There is a lack of complete info. Available to techs only.

So that's exactly the performance and temperature output I get from every other vehicle I have (without any upgrades).
I wonder why the installed system I have in my 2001 Workhorse chassis doesn't work as it should!

The air conditioning system as delivered from WCC works well however this after market system takes it to the next level.

Like any other after market system it builds on the existing products to make them better.

Driver:

Is the Dash air system covered under the WH warranty? Or does that fall under the RV Manufacturer?

Your service center's air conditioning tech should be able to service your air conditioning system in total and figure out who's going to warranty which components that might have failed later.

We the customers should simply expect the system to work as designed. The WCC components are warrantied for 3 years and 36,000 miles whereas the coach components are typically warrantied for 1 year or 15,000 or so thousand miles.

Depending on who services the system there may be out of pocket expenses when the coach warranty expires. The compressor and all the other hi-pressure components supplied by WCC remain under warranty for the warranty period and you should not be out of pocket during this period.
