in reference to the Coleman Mach 8 A/C , this morning I turned on the main A/C ON MY Pinnacle and about an hour later heard a strange noise coming from the A/C unit. I went on the roof and the fan wasn't running. I looked thru the grille on top and noticed that 2 of the 3 fan blades were broken off.

I removed the top cover and discovered the fan motor had broken loose from the floor of the A/C unit and broken the blades and put a gash in the coil. Now comes the dealer nightmare to get it fixed. it is under warranty and the fan issue is a known problem.

Anyone have tire rub? My left rear tire has made contact with the lower inside lip of my slide and the metal covering is slightly worn. Before I left on my two month adventure I completely sealed all the seams under the slide and in the wheel wells to keep out water. On my 3k trip second fuel stop noticed a piece of silicone hanging down between the tires and found the rub mark. One of the bridges on I-95 in Ga has a really bad dip that gets your attention. I am sure this is where it happened but my feeling are that it should not have. Bringing it to camping world to address another long laundry list of warranty issues including this. They did a nice job on my cap painting from when my dealer hit it and said they do Jayco warranty work even though that dealer does not carry Jayco. My new fold out couch zipper broke open the first time we opened the couch for company and made a mess with all the fuzzy material sticking to the velcro. So far I have had no problems with the Jayco build, it is the other stuff. Awning, fan, transfer switch, gas side of water heater, generator codes, brakes, etc. I placed jacks under my kitchen slide when I was up at my camp and so far the outriggers have not bent. I have the ones that have the bend for more strength but AZ has the same and his folded and jammed the slide. I will see if Jayco will let them install the thicker ones since I know they will fail. We really love this floor plan and two months seemed just like a few days with all the room. Just wish the 2016 models had the bigger frame and 500 to one schwintec assemblies. And for info I dry camp so I do not have the heavy residential refer.

Rock- Just got back from a short trip and have not noticed any "rub" yet. Every time I go over one of those wonderful "bridge dips" I cringe just thinking about what is happening back there in the camper. It seems nobody can make bridge approaches level with the road surface! I will keep track of ours and let you know if it occurs (I hope not!)

Tell me about those roads. I now make it a habit to check my ceiling fan. Just about all the time the chain is wrapped around a blade from bouncing.

Just got unit back, so far so good, Camping World replaced the fan,motor and mounting kit and straightened the bent fins on the coil. All under warranty, only took 9 days. I ordered the "D" revision fan blade for the front A/C, am replacing it today.

I pushed my warranty work back two weeks. They r busy and the service advisor who handled my cap damage repaint was great. She is off these two weeks and I am scheduled with her so she can go over everything with me. No plans using Rv for months so no biggie. I will ensure they check my fans to ensure they are the new ones. Thanks for the reminder

Same here, trying to find a solution to this. Might remove the chain.
