A/C service recommendations
« on: July 26, 2020, 04:05:20 PM »
I am presently traveling in western Montana in the Great Falls and Kalispell area.  Last night the front a/c unit on my Entegra coach started making a terrible noise, similar to a tennis shoe in a dryer, and it felt like it was shaking itself apart.  Looking for recommendations on service facilities in the Kalispell or greater area.  Thanks.

Norm, can you get up on the roof and pull the cover off? Maybe the fan, or such, came loose and just needs a couple of screws tightened.
Is the AC unit a Dometic?

I don't know the warranty on those units (I would hope it is better than two-years), so it may be worth checking (I assume your coach is around two years old from your signature line).
Dometic may have an authorized service center in your area.

Had a fried go up on the roof to investigate and it appears that the squirrel cage fan has come apart.  I am trying to locate a replacement to install. Should be an easy fix.  Going to buy an extra for a spare.  Thanks for the replies.

Glad you got it figured out. Personally I would not buy with a spare. It's not a common failure (AFAIK).
Perhaps call the manufacture and see if it is still covered by the two-year warranty.
