I recently purchased a 95 American Eagle 40ft RV. quickly a short background on the coach the seller was a elderly man that was proud to own it and made sure it was taken care of and maintained above and beyond! and it 110% showed in the condition.
that being said it has been sitting for around 5yrs he says it was running when it was parked. as well as got started here and there for the first year or 2.
ive been at a loss on where to go for help on my issues. then i remembered whenever i had a question while troubleshooting this coach not starting after hooking up new batteries. this site was always my go to for anything and everything. but now that i have narrowed it down to what I believe the TCU Module as the shifter wont even light up.
i sent the whole unit to a company that claimed to be able to test/repair the module. they tested it and got back to me saying it was something on the main module and it cannot be repaired only choice is get a new/refurbished module.
normally i would just brush it off as "my luck"
this time tho i had some concerns first being the email i got from this company was sent less then 4 hours after i got a confirmation email from shipping company that my package was delivered. plus the email i received from them said my module is bad cannot be repaired i need a new one. but im in luck because they have one in stock that they can program for my coach and send me a plug and play unit and my new total would be $2,600 and some change and they are just waiting on me to give them the greenlight and they would go ahead and charge the balance to my card i used for the module test.
i declined and requested my unit be shipped back to me.
I'm looking for SOMEONE who knows anything about this topic and weather or not i should send it to someone else and get it tested again just to possibly be told its bad. or if someone knows where i can get a new module i did see a few on ebay that claim they can program it and it would be plug and play for like 1k less then i was quoted.. but i would really appreciate someone thats knows a thing or 2 about this stuff pointing me in the right direction.
i bought this coach to get as far away from this AZ heat as i can and instead im sitting in the heat beating my head over this dang module!
