While running the RV the other day, I noticed some strange hissing. I shut it down and discovered the air dryer was not completely shutting off.

We have had trouble with this particular dryer since we first bought the motorhome. It has been rebuilt 3 times. The last time we did it ,the service guy said it had a lot of corrosion and if we ever had trouble again he would reccomend replacing it.

I crawled under and looked at it and then went on line. I found one that looks exact, so I have emailed the company to ask for OEM specs. if it works out I am going to order it and install it myself.

The last time I had a quote they wanted $850 to change it. I can buy it new for 377.97. If I do the work,

That's quite a savings.

I have been under there spraying all the joints so they will release easily. Wish me luck. This is a pretty big job for a back yard guy.

Check it out.

Got it done yesterday. Looks a lot better than the old one.

Even though it was supposed to be a exact replacement, it never works that way. It would not fit between the frame rail. The new bracket had to be cut off and I had to use the old mounting bracket.

Tested and ready for the road.
