coach hot while travelling

OK my coach gets hot while we are travelling. I tried turning on the generator but it shuts down after about an hour. Sometimes my generator won't start. Any help would be appreciated

We run the generator the entire time we are driving. It takes a few seconds to start but has never not started and on your 2015 that should not be an issue. We have had the apparently common issue of either the generator shutting off with sudden stops or the occasional power disconnecting despite the generator continuing to run. I make sure the generator is restarted if need ed and my wife and kids are trained now (lol) to shut off the main power switch by the stair, wait a few minutes and turn the switch back on. Some trips this seems to happen a lot and some it's rare. But we have always stayed fairly cool running in the southern summer temps.

I am starting to suspect vapor lock in the fuel line is causing some of our generator issues. The fuel line is not insulated and it gets really hot in that location with heat from engine, generator, and road causing a perfect storm. I'm considering installing heat shielding around the fuel line.

As a side note, on my last trip it was very hot inside (95 when we started) Interestingly in my unit I found the the front A/C fed the ducts on the passenger side and the rear fed the driver side ducts. Rig didn't start to cool down until both A/C units were running.

We bought a fan at CW that is DC / AC adapter/ rechargeable and place it between the front seats to push the dash air back. This has made a sizable difference for us.

Check out my thread here


It sounds as you have the exact issue I had. 10 minutes and $3 fix.
