I looked at your profile but I don't see what year your Adventurer is. Can you post here what yr it is and then put it in your profile and/or your signature. It will help us give you more specific suggestions and comments.
If you go to the link in my signature below, you can download the procedure I wrote. I suggest you get it and print it out so your rv repair guy has a better idea of what's involved if he has to remove the basement unit to get inside. 15 minutes reading the procedure may save you 2-3 hrs of labor charges if he does not have a lot of experience on the basement units.
If the problem is just the starting caps, then you don't have to remove the whole unit.
If your coach is 2004 (like mine) or older, then there is a chance that there are issues inside the unit with the outdoor blower bearings and metal squirrel cage..... these parts wear and with metal fatigue and need to be replaced. That's what my repair procedure is all about. A heck of a lot of forum member have used the step-by-step photos to save a hundreds of dollars and avoided much frustration. RV techs that are good on roof units run into trouble on basement units until they experience the issues first-hand.
I had a fun time at the Quartzsite RV show too.
Good luck and welcome to the Forum,
