So this is our last summer of camping before our Warranty expires in late September. Although we haven't had any major issues with the TT, just some minor stuff, I started to look at modifications to prolong the life of our TT and components.
The first modification, I will be applying Eternabond tape to all our seams and around roof penetrations. As soon as the weather cooperates. I'm tired of checking my Dicor
The second modification on the schedule is to install a condenser cooling fan for the refrigerator. During our trip last summer to South Dakota, the Refrigerator would struggle when ambient temperatures got above 90 degrees or so. It was 90+ several days in a row. During those times the refrigerator was operating on electric mode. Switching to LP mode would operate much better due to the draft created by the flue with burner operation. I want to save on my LP consumption.
I have spent quite a bit of time researching the internet for the best idea to perform this mod without "hacking" in a fan and snap disc control. In my research, I found a system that not only controls a fan, but also monitors your boiler & condenser temperature. It will shut your system down during a high boiler temp condition and automatically restart it. The controller will also turn a fan on and off as needed due to condenser temperature.
The website is www.arprv.com
I ordered the controller and a fan. I am going to fabricate a mounting bracket for the fan so I don't have to mount it to the door as suggested. I know alot of mods of this nature were just adding 1 or 2 4" 12VDC computer fans under the roof vent and sucking the air over the coil.
The fan provided in this kit is actually a blower that will take cooler air in from the access door and force it up towards the roof vent.
Has anyone heard if this company and/or the kit they sell? Also, would like to hear from anyone who has done this modification in general and what the results were. My ARP kit is scheduled to be delivered on Tuesday. As soon as the weather improves, I will post pictures of the modification.
