2014 267BHS Mod thread

Howdy folks

New Years day we purchased a new to us Jayco Trailer. A couple years ago we bought a truck trailer combo from an older relative as a cheap way to dip our toes into the camping lifestyle. We enjoyed camping quite a bit but the kids needed bunks....which explains the 267BHS.

I don't think any of the mods haven't been done before, but hopefully this can be a bit of a question/answer thread for myself and others.

Thermostat mod!

This was first on my list as it interested me in 2 ways - one having a digital thermostat with precise temperature control as well as normal air conditioning rather than the stupid roof mounted controls, and the second one was the challenge of figuring it out.

This is the only before picture I have - with the two dials on the roof one for fan control (off-low-high) and the other for coldness.

I was originally going to do the solenoid mod but after some digging around under the foil tape I found a thermostat wire that was installed from the factory to the factory thermostat location!

You are able to purchase the solenoid activated thermostat style controller for these AC units.

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Airxcel 8330752

Terminal labeling

B-: 12v Ground. Required for solenoid activation. There is a plain white wire with the red and white wires coming from the furnace at the factory thermostat location which can be tied to this wire. Or any metal ground would work.

Y: Compressor/cooling

GH: Fan high lead
GL: Fan low lead

The freeze terminals go to an included sensor, I'm not exactly sure what it does but I installed it the same place where the factory one was, up in the plenum.

I know most RV thermostats have an internal high low fan switch, but they are quite a bit more money than the regular household thermostats and I ended up upgrading my household thermostat and using my old one in the RV.

I purchased these tiny 3 way switches to allow for fan speed control. I think for 90% of the time low speed is sufficient. 3/4" mounting hole

The ceiling grill had the control faceplate simply screwed on/sandwiched to the grill, 4 screws removed and it looks like it never existed:

Nice mods...., keep them coming!

Recliners look like a nice fit, and more comfortable

Looks good. I did the same ac upgrade in my 287. Looks much nicer and I like being able to set the room temp. You were luckier than me though. I had to run wires to get to my thermostat from the ac.
