If you don't find anything in the Keys try Fort Myers Beach--the Red Coconut.  On the beach side you are on sand, 1st row is beachfront and fourth row you back up to the road (some road nice).  Sites 15, 16, 17 and 18 are not beachfront but have gulf views. Very tight camping but a total beach experience.  You can walk the 1.2 miles into town or take the trolley.  Many places to eat and beautiful sunsets over the gulf.  Just a short drive to Sanibel and Captiva islands.

Here's a couple of places to start looking. Good luck and enjoy the warm weather.

I know you are trying to sort out why the heating elements in your AC do not work but we found out in a previous camper a portable electric heater is capable of putting out the same amount of heat as the AC heating coils.  The small portable heaters are typically much quieter and allow you to move the heat to where you need it most.  These are relatively cheap and available from many sources including Walmart.  We have a heat pump instead of AC heating elements in our PC but typically use the portable electric heaters for the reasons mentioned above.  Many of the portable units have a rudimentary thermostat to allow reasonable temperature control.

One of these could get you heat now and allow you to determine why your AC heating coils are not working, then you could determine which method you prefer.

Hi Everyone,

Given most people here on the PC forum own newer PCs, this likely won't apply, but it could for us with older roof-top A/C units.

My brother had his old 1998 Starflyte motor home serviced to get his A/C top cover replaced.  UV damage was so bad that it broke off and shattered on the ground, fortunately while parked.  He asked the service guy if anything could be done to reduce the A/C noise.  The guy said he'd look it over.  It turned out that over the years, the hardware that holds down the A/C unit worked themselves loose.  Between the gasket shrinking some amount with age, and the mounting hardware working loose, his A/C unit vibrated excessively up there.  My brother said the noise reduction is dramatic.  He was surprised to learn of how loose the unit was, especially since he had no water coming in.  Funny that my brother thinks the A/C unit was loose the day he bought the RV used some years ago.

So if your older A/C unit runs louder than a new one, tighten up the mounting hardware.  It might solve your problem.  It might also reduce the potential of water infiltration.

Sandy, if you remove the filters from the inside and look up into the A/C unit, you  will see four Philips head screws, one on each corner. Remove the two rear ones and peek into the rear of the A/C. You should see a U shaped coil with fins on it. That is the heating element. If you see a heating element you need to call the factory and talk to them. If don't see one,  call them and ask why you don't have one.

Leaving for the Florida Keys! Wink Heart Shower.    Need a suggestion for a private campground. Ocean or Gulfside preferred. (Yes - ready to pay big bucks!  Anyone have a friend with a big yard?)

Janey  ThankYou

I have the full Kelderman airbag setup for the rear of my PC.  It does help with the ride massively, but also allows me to level the RV and lower/raise it for towing.  I also have bags in my front springs.

Were the rear leaf springs removed or is it the 2-stage setup connecting their rear shackles to the air bag mechanism as shown in the pic in the Kelderman link?  Thanks.

Same 2 stage as pictured, leafs are still there.  I have the Kelderman kit.

Sandy, My guess is the your AC unit doesn't have a heat strip in it. You will need to look at your model number and check and see if it came with it,


You might be right. I take it the model number is on the AC unit? Can I see it from inside or climb up to see it.
