Alante 31V

Hey there, we have an Alante 31V, we love it. We have had it since Sept 2016. We've driven it through mountain passes in BC and have no major issues. The dealer has been working on our leveling system, but we feel // trust they will get to the bottom of the issue..

Had to start the dash air to help it out. Looks like I will be shopping for a new A/C unit when we get back. Any suggestions for an upgrade?
It seems to me that these RV AC unit are rated to create a 20 degree difference from the outside ambient temperature. So it may be within spec.

Yeah, I agree that doesn't solve your problem of being hot inside.

klsparh.

sorry to hear about the a/c quitting.

111 outside. sounds like heatwave we are having in the SF Bay area and other
CA 'hot spots' this weekend.


yea, i believe it's suggested the best an a/c can do is to cool up to 20 degrees
less than outside temp.

hopefully you are able to survive until cooler times re-appear.

take care ans safe journeys

I installed supports under my shower pan as it was very flexible with my 200lb weight. Wasn't hard to add 4 supports, just attach them with Marine 5200 adhesive on the floor, leaving the top to 'float' a bit as the coach flexes, access is thru the plumbing panel. I am in the process of adding the Air Suspension system also. I have fixed most all of the other gremlins so hoping all will be good once I get the handling dialed in.

Actually, mine hasn't had much more in the way of issues than any other class A I have owned, you may have gotten a Monday model, after a bad weekend. Hope you get it sorted out.
