Back on road/Maintenance items/Tommy P shout out


Recommended Posts

At the end of Sept, we got back to TN. C wanted to stay in place to prepare for music school auditions. So we had a few months to work on all the little projects that get put off. So of course, I did all the projects in the four weeks leading up to travel day instead of a little at a time over the months parked. :)

HUGE thanks for Tommy P for taking good care of the truck and figuring out the AC problem. Knock on wood, I have 18 hours of drive time under belt with AC working. Intermittent voltage fluctuation at the compressor was causing the APADS (AC protection controller) to shut down compressor. Even though the AC wiring harness was new, weatherpak connectors were new and changed twice, hard wire was the answer. Don’t ask us why.

note to self: when ordering mini split, make sure to check 110v model vs. 220v model since it is running off genset.

If your out of items to do. Will run my T600 over, and drop it off for a while. Be happy to pick it up when your done. 😀

Sounds like you have done a lot in a short time for sure. Plus think of all the rest you can get now while on the road.

I have to get my shop finished. Get the AC going in it. Can't handle the hot these days. So anything like this, does not get done when its hot.
