Re: danhard servicing and repair

Have you researched shops and asked if they feel comfortable working on the Danhard SMB installs? I'd think you could get the PDF of the schematic and they would be able to tell you. I use a friend who doesn't have an issue with my Starcool system. He looked at the PDF and actually made some improvements on it. There might be some critical parts difficult to get if they are no longer available but most shops can work around it.

Re: danhard servicing and repair

i have repeatedly peppered sportsmobile with e-mails I keep asking who or want kind of service to ask about Danhard service outside their service area. I live too far away. I'm hesitant to buy the Danhard unless they can tell me this.

I won't get the Danhard unless they can tell me this.I thing Sportsmobile is a wonderful company for some things but can be pig-headed about others.

Re: danhard servicing and repair

I would look at places that work on ambulances or big rig repair shops, as APU's become more prevalent that run these types of air-conditioners. I have a StarCool which is somewhat worse, Most ford dealers or independent air conditioning shops did not want to look at it. RV shops were usually worse, if it was not a roof mount they did not know about it. I did find a place that had a tech that was not afraid to work on it, but it was not as easy as one would think. The design is not anything overly difficult that someone with air conditioning experience would have any difficulty working on it , the bigger problem was just finding somebody to look at it.

That has been my experience, at least.

not making light with what you say. if sportsmobile sells it they should know how to get it repaired
or at LEAST be able to tell you what kind of AC repair to look at. they can't even tell you that.

Re: danhard servicing and repair

Don't know but my A/C guy says these systems are not that complicated. Still I'd check before buying. For that matter see if these systems produce what you expect.

they may not be complicated for your guy-but they would be complicated for me. I just want to know who to use.

Re: danhard servicing and repair

Instead of starting a new thread.

to anybody who has Danhard AC-not starcool.

first off would you get it again knowing what you know now.

would you get it again IF you did not live relativley close to a sportmobile facility-say within 100 miles.


thanks
