Hi Everyone

I am the second owner of a 2001 Itasca Suncruiser over here in the UK. There is not a lot of technical expertise close by so I wonder if you guys can offer me some advice?
I have a problem with the basement TrueAir conditioning unit; it just is not supplying any cool air. The Winnebago owners case does not include any manufacturers operating instructions for the air conditioning, so I am don,t have any trouble shooting information. I have gone to the Winnebago website and they provide a link to Coleman-Mach but I am not able to find any downlaodable manual that will help. Does anyone know where I can get an operating manual or if not does any have any idea how I can troubleshoot the problem?

Many thanks

Welcome to the forum. You will find lot's of helpful info. here. You might want to do a search on 'Basement Air' or 'Tru Air' and you will likely find many threads with troubleshooting tips.

One of the commonly mentioned causes is the duct work in the rear of the motorhome comes loose and all the cool air escapes. You may want to go under the rig with a flashlight and take a look to see if that might be a problem.

Thanks for the response but I don't know if I am being a bit dense but I can't find any reference to "TrueAir". The spec for the air conditioning on both the Winnebago website and my documentation just refer to TrueAir but now reference or serial numbers. Any idea where these serial numbers will be on the unit?

Thanks again

Make sure you check the replaceable filter. If it has not been changed in a while it can get quite dirty and will greatly restrict the air flow.

John,

Behind the outside cover of the TrueAir unit. There should be one screw on the front edge of the cover near the bottom that you need to open the propane access door to get to and another on the bottom edge of the cover near the rear of the coach. The cover is hinged but has no supports so be careful when you swing it up as it will not stay up on its own.

Your coach is similar to mine so it should be a 6636 model.

Regards,

The manuals in the link above are quite detailed. If you can't readily identify the model number of yours, perhaps an email to Winnebago with your VIN and serial number would be productive. I have found customer service to be very helpful in that area.

It's just a matter of wording. Go back to the website, after you've found your model number and look under "heat Pumps"
