Sue,
Youu have probably seen my other post.  We are going to take a special trip to Elkhart.  Besides the 2 issues, we also need our rear view camera/ mirror replaced.  The model has been discontinued and sounds like it involves a lot of rewiring.  We would rather get it done correctly.  Also, Kermit will replace the microwave, but it will still be the Apollo.  We just need to figure out travel plans and make the appointment.
Thanks for your responses.

We have a few issues we need to take care of with our RV.  It seems it would be best to go to the factory.  We will be driving from Cape Cod, MA  Taking either 4 or 5 days to get there. We can't tell from the map whether taking I-90 or I-80 would be the best route.  Those of you that have done this trip, what are your thoughts?  Also, any suggestions for campgrounds on the way or back? 
Thanks-
Roni

Sue,   Wanted to follow up.  I called Midwest.  I was told to get an appliance service place or RV service place that deals with microwaves to check it.  She felt it was probably a control board problem.  She wasn't sure what the code was.  We are not even one full month over the one year warranty.  We have a call in to Kermit.  We are really not happy about this.  As I mentioned, we have only used the microwave a few times.

Sue- we are in a campground that surprisingly doesn't get a Verizon signal.  We will try on our way out tomorrow.  I'll definitely let you know how it goes.

We have a Tibetan Terrier- about 23 lbs.  He's great in our RV.  While driving, he travels in a crate we keep under the dining room table.  It works well for us.

Sue,
Thanks-I will try to get them tomorrow.
Do you have the Apollo- if so, have you had any issues with it.

A question for those of you with the Apollo 1/2 time oven.  I tried using it tonight- set the microwave to run for 5 1/2 mins.  After running almost the full time, it started beeping non stop and showed a code of PP:PP.  It kept beeping until I finally hit the reset button.  Once the time was reset, it held the correct time.  The small manual/ instruction booklet does not mention any error codes.  I am hesitant to use it again until I know what happened.  The microwave has only been used about 4 times.  The first time it turned itself off.  Next two times used for about 5 mins each time and was fine.
Would any one know what the error code was for?
Thanks-
Roni

I was able to get a mobile service to come out to check the A/C.  After checking up on the roof and inside, he couldn't find a problem.  We felt he was knowledgable and honest.  It was draining properly from the roof.  The only thing he came up with was possible ice on the fins.  We're to use it and see if it happens again.  We are glad it appears to be nothing major.
Barry- thanks for your help!

Barry,
I feel stupid but our vent does rotate down a small bit.  It does not go up.  The casing around the vent over hangs the top by about 1-2" and prevents upward movement.  So  straight out is the highest it goes.
It is raining heavily right now and looks like it will stay this way today.  We will unhook and move to Fort Wilderness at Disneyworld.  Hopefully, I will be able to get a mobile service to come today on a Sunday.
Hope you have a good day.
Thanks-Roni

First, all you have mentioned will help us when we speak to a mechanic.  Also, I did did not mean to say pump.  We also have a heat strip not a pump.  Actually, we find the heat strip to work well.
Again, thanks for your help.  I'll let you know how it goes.

Our vents do move side to side and we can close them off both front and back.  They do not move up and down.  I did try looking inside again.  The leak was in a small area. It was an area towards the front where a screw was half covered by the foam that goes around the opening.  the foam only seemed wet in that small area.  Don't know if this helps pin point the problem.  We have a dometic 640315.301C0.  It is also a heat pump.  I don't think I mentioned that when running it, it did feel cool.
Just saw your new message.  It was on auto and we did not have it set to be overly cold.  Past this, although I understand your suggestions, it is getting past our scope of comfort.  Always, we would be hesitant, not wanting it be be worse after our attempt, especially being so far from home!
We do appreciate your help.  You are an amazing resource.

 Barry,
Thanks for your response.  To try to answer some of your questions- we are level, we just arrived at a campground and was setting up.  The door was opened and closed a few times.  We did have a ceiling vent slightly opened.  We did not have the thermostat set low. We started at 68 and after about an hour set it to 75 or maybe 78.  Water was definitely draining off the roof and down the side.  The filters are clean.  We have very rarely used the a/c in the year we have had th RV.  Our model does not have vents that can be adjusted.  It just blows straight out the back and front.  Once we realized it was dripping, we turned off.  That was about 2 hrs ago.  So, there is no ice to be seen.
We are not running it right now.  It's been raining.  So, it has cooled off.  We will try to see if we can find some place to service it tomorrow.  Don't know if that is possible on a Sunday.
Barry, you've been great!

Once again, looks like we could use some advice.  We are now in Florida and this is the first time we have had the A/C on for any length of time- maybe 4 hrs. It is leaking- dripping water inside.  I took off the filter and can't really figure out where it is coming from.  Of course it is the weekend and I can't call Phoenix.  Anyone have any ideas or thoughts on whether there is anything I can do to take care of this?
Thanks- Roni

I just called Phoenix and ended up speaking with Bobby.  He felt it could either be a problem with the trigger wire going to the valve or a problem with the LED light itself.  He said it would not effect the functioning of the valve.  I will bring it in to my service place when we get home.
I appreciate everyone's help and concern.  It still amazes me what a helpful caring group this is!
Thanks again- Roni

Barry,
That is so nice that you called for us and checked it out!  We are so relieved.  You have helped us enjoy our vacation!  I always listen when the valves open and close, so I will just be more careful to do so.  You have been more than kind!  Definitely a helpful vote- I wish I could do more!
Thanks again!
Roni
