  1. Well Linda, and anybody else with thoughts on my roof ac. I believe I’m in the market for a new unit. It was around 100 and high 60’s dew point in MN last wknd. Ac compressor would cycle on and off about every 15-20 minutes. The coolest it hit was 81 in the cab. My friends have been staying in my cabin for last 4 months, while they’re building a house. While my wife, myself and 3 dogs have been staying in the dolphin roasting. I finally told them Sunday to get the hell out and to go to their in laws. Whats a good one with a heating element? I’d like to get a high efficiency one but the reviews weren’t that good as far as problems. also is 13,500 btu overkill? Thanks in advance for anyone’s thoughts and feelings
  2. Ya good point Linda. I’ll see how it goes this wknd. Now the weather genus’s calling for high 90’s and humid
  3. Hello all, finally got to my dolphin last Friday. My inside cab temperature was 92 degrees. I had cleaned inside filter and outside compressor then fired up roof ac. It ran ice cold for about 15 minutes then the compressor kicked off. It was still 82 in cab. After about 10 minutes compressor turned on again. Any thoughts. Low of Freon is what I think but I don’t think I can add any. It’s supposed to be 90 plus and humid this coming weekend in northwest MN. My dr calls me a well nourished male, so I’m not a big fan of the heat.
  4. Thanks for the link jjrbus. I’ll post my results in the near future
  5. Markwilliam1. Yes, If it’s there... it’s supposed to be under cover by the temperature control. I won’t know till I get back to it may 18
  6. Derek up north and Linda S. You two are filled with a plethora of info. Linda, i did use a compressor to blow out the inside of the unit, but never thought of going on the roof Derek up north, I will check in two weeks to see if it matches. Thanks to both of you!
  7. I haven’t messaged the forum since last fall. I got my 89 Dolphin out of storage last week. I’m wandering if anyone knows about a limit screw to set the compressor to colder? It blows cold then compressor turns off. It’s a dometic. 11,500 btu I believe
  8. Also MNman for the Honda your looking at for 850.00$ make sure it’s not refurbished. Honda controls their prices fairly close at 1000.00 for new
  9. I know your Mnman. stupid spell check
  10. McMan I’m a drywall contractor in Mpls and own 7 of the Honda 2000’s. During our recent Indian summer stint I used my oldest of the seven and that had no problem running my 11,000 Coleman on my 89 dolphin. I bought a Honda 3000 for it but don’t see the need for it now. Plus 2000 is half the weight. Enjoy your Toyhome. Hambone
  11. I think your right Linda. I should have walked away when I saw his wooden teeth. Why would I think he can take care of a rv when he can’t take care of his choppers Well I’m up for the challenge anyway since I haven’t had enough ice on the lakes to fish till at least January
  12. Hello all, as some of you know I bought my 89 Dolphin 900 about a month ago. I drove it from middle Wisconsin to cabin/ indoor storage by Alexandria Minnesota. about a 400 mile trip. Every weekend I’ve been going up and spending time getting to know it. I’ve posted few questions to this forum (tranny dipstick removal/replace, cracked shower). Now I discover plastic bathroom sink has 3 hairline cracks. Also previous owner used shower for storage and had duck tape over drain. Since I’m trying to fix the shower I pulled the drain tape and dumped water in it. Now I’m getting sewer gas inside. I’ve put water in all the p-traps but still stinks. Any thoughts would be appreciated. thanks Hambone
  13. Both great ideas. I will do both. My plumber nephew told me to spray foam under the cracked area. Think I’ll do that too
