after arriving at B Young!
We purchased our Redwood from B Young RV near Portland, Oregon. We have commented about them before, but I just have to give them yet another shout out-more than 4 years after our purchase!-For great customer service in their service department. All RVers hear a ton of tales about poor service, lack of service, long waits for service... none of the above apply to B Young RV, at least in our experience. In the middle of a heatwave, Richard Tran (our favorite service adviser!) scheduled us in less than a WEEK from my call for a new A/C. We arrived on time, and we left within three short hours. How's that for a good outcome? Thank you so much B Young RV for making service a priority for your customers, and to Richard for working hard to make us happy! Sorry this looks like an ad for them... it's not. We are just very grateful. We pay full fare for their services :-)
Something I know now after ordering our fifth wheel with two heat pumps: One is enough. We have been going through winter with only one working heat pump for 4 years now, and it has always been enough. Remember, a heat pump will not heat if the outside temp goes below about 35-40 degrees, and then the furnace turns on. If you are thinking of adding heat pumps to your rig, keep this in mind. One is probably enough. But two A/C's is a necessity in temps over about 85, if there is no shade, especially.
We chose a newer version of our unit, the Coleman Mach 8 15K BTU with heat pump. Very low-profile (and great feature, reducing our height!). We thought the old A/C was working "ok"... now we know that it was NOT. Our coach is nice and cool now, even in the 100 degree temps we are currently suffering here in Washington state. We always have a heat wave every summer and I won't dread it as much any more!
