Armstrong AC IS Working Again

Preparing to take the Caravel to a rally this weekend, I had to get the A/C working. I have purchased a new Carrier unit and it is ready to be installed this afternoon. However, I just had to make another attempt to revive the ever faithful Summer Breeze unit by Armstrong. I read the wiring diagram, checked the wiring, and checked the thermostat. Wait......the thermostat? Yes, there was a bad connection there. The fan fired right up and the compressor came on and began cooling. Glad to have that out of the way now.
I installed the new rock guard on the front before the last trip out. It sure looks good.
I'll be meeting with my Piedmont WBCCI unit at Palmetto Cove RV Park, near Cleveland, SC. It is a beautiful park. Come camp and visit with me sometime......Kevin

As with all things not used in more than 10 years, the A/C needed to be run to prove reliable. This was not the case. The breaker tripped, I am hoping it is only weak. And also, the fan is not blowing air all the time. I didn't make it to the rally except for a short evening visit. Kevin

The old Armstrong is not working now. I'll have to decide if it is worth the effort to keep or not.

Sorry about that. No a/c is NOT an option.

Nice talking to you recently. Let's get together in a few weeks...after the 4th!!
