Hi There!!!

 

Thanks for Choosing Just Answer...

 

I think on this one you might have to get to a shop. Most AC units are sealed units and if you have a leak something is wrong. Not only that special handling licenses are required to work with the R-22. IF you have an LP or propane operated fridge it does not take R-22, Where electric refrigerators use safe, non-flammable Freon for their refrigerant, gas (propane) RV refrigerators use compressed hydrogen gas and an ammonia-water solution.

 

IF you do find an RV shop you want to ask about any recalls on the fridge. Some manufacturers do have recalls and you want a reputable RV shop to have knowledge about this. It really could be something simple, verify you have good voltage. Both units require 12 volts for the control boards to operate correctly. Make sure the coach breakers are not shut off. It would be odd that both components failed at once. I would have a shop have a look it will take about an hour per item to find the problem..

Thank you. Do you have any advice on where to find a shop?
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 12 years ago

Camping world is all over the US and they do have a service department with qualified Techs. IF you get me the model number and manufacturer of the fridge OR the model of your fleetwood I can check and see if there is a recall for you. It would only take a few mins to find out. I would look for a camping world. Another option is to look for a mobile RV repair service to come to you. Most mobile RV techs would have knowledge of these items.... I will also take a quick look and see if anything is in your area. IF you let me know the Model of your fleetwood I can check on that fridge....

 

Thanks, Robert

Thanks Robert. I think I may ebjoy this site! It's a 1990 Fleetwood, Model STORM 32v.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 12 years ago

OK

Yes this is a great site, I been an expert on this site for three years and a RV Tech for about 10 years. Sometimes it is a challenge but it is rewarding.

 

OK I spent some time looking and it looks like everything is north or south of you. I can say that there is a camping world north 100 miles of Pittsburgh. The good thing about that is they should have a secured site you can hook up at night if you had to stay. They should have sewer hook ups, electric hook ups and water. It may be best to drop off the unit which is common for owners to do.

 

Might be a recall and here is the information so you are informed and can inquire with the shop about it. This way if the recall is part of that issue most of the cost should be paid for.... Hope this helps some more!!!! (Maybe I should start an RV repair service shop in your area, I can not beleive nothing is around!)
