Hello, all Winnebago owners and "fixit" people,
Our latest issue with our 1997 Winnebago Vectra (36ft) Ford 460, V8, fuel injected coach is the heater core is leaking! We had a heater core installed in 2008 (at 49,270 miles) (current mileage-50,448), and have taken 2 trips last year and none this year, so far.
My husband wants to "bypass" the heater core, and wonders if there is a heater core bypass valve in the system or will he have to disconnect hoses and install a couplar? We were thinking this might be cheaper than going in for another heater core, since we do not travel in areas, where we really need the dashboard heater. (The coach heater works just fine, when we are camped!)
Any comments are welcome on this and if any advice or "HOW" this can be done, would appreciate a reply.
My husband is mechanically inclined, so once he knows "how" it can be done, he should have no problem, if it does not include removing a lot of parts to get to it, or too big of a job!! We do have a good RV Repair center, here in our area that has done most of our work before, but just trying to save a few bucks, if we can, and if this will work and not cause additional problems.
