Converter

I hate to be such a bother, but I asked the wrong question awhile ago. We have the manuals to the converter to our diesel pusher, but can't find where they have put the converter itself. Any ideas of where to look for this ?

Also, how do you get to the air conditioner drains to check to see if the hoses need to be cleaned out ? How would you suggest cleaning these hoses ?

Thank you, again.

Do you have a metal box under fridge?
Most rv's ac drain on roof you would need to remove ac cover on roof to check drains. I the water isn't running inside they are probably working.

You didn't say what coach you have, but generally, you have an 'inverter/charger' that does both functions; supplies 120v from batteries and charges 12v system from 120v shore power. So look for your inverter. Mine is mounted upside down on the celing of a storage bay.

As for the AC drains, you should start at the top, you'll have to take off the AC cover then look for the drip pans under the cover and the small drain tubing that connects it all.

Lots of MH's don't have drains from the heat pumps or air cons, they just drain onto the roof and water just runs down the sides.

We need more info on your rig to get into specifics.

The Inverter is usually close to your battery bank and has heavy cables running to it - check in the first bay forward of the batteries - that's where mine is.

If you're air conditioning unit's do have drain's.
And one or all of them are draining properly.

You will have a wet spot.

Under the coach.

Look under the coach close to the fridge first then front to back from there.

Most mid to upper level units have pans and drains.

My inverter is mounted upside down to the' ceiling' of the coach/house battery compartment.

My roof a/cs drain on the roof and drip off whichever way the coach leans.

Mine is mounted in a centre of a full width bay between the hot water tank/heater (on the passenger side) and the water pump/accumulator (on the drivers side) (don't you love that mix), also there is the transfer switch, a couple of circuit breakers and (this won't be relevant to you) a 220 -> 110 transformer.
You can get to one side from an opening bay door but it's pretty hard to see it there because the accumulator is in the way, the other way to get it is via a hatch with sliding doors in the full width storage bay in front of it.
Without knowing what make and model you have no-one knows where it might be but you could start by seeing if there are any hatches inside your storage bay(s) they are not obvious on a quick glance.

The OP ask about converter, in a 1999 Newmar he might not have a inverter.

My 99 DS the converter is mounted on the left side wall of the power cable bay .

Original equipment was a " Todd Engineering " unit 75 amp unit . I've replaced mine but have the owners manual if you need it , the unit runs on 13.1 volts continuously and you have to install a jumper wire if you require a fast battery charge of 14.1 volts.
Aluminum finned box on left in photo.

BTW: This is the standard equipment converter/charger , there was an option of a " Heart/Interface inverter ( Company now Xantrex ) and I'm not sure of the inverter mounting, but the control panel above the entry steps should say if your coach is inverter equipped ( Heart/Interface logo )
