    I really hate Cruisair Dometic

    Long story short… a few days ago we had an electrical issue inside the Cruisair control cabinet on the 116 which damaged two of the 3 chillers control boards. My AC guy had one in stock so at least we ve been able to run on 2 chillers. Well it turns out Cruisair no longer carry these boards and they are pushing their newer control system, an all In one computerized setup which means no redundancy. That fails and all three chillers would be out.

    We found a couple of used boards so we should be able to get that third chiller on line quickly but in the long run we need to find a solution.

    Why do manufacturers insist on integrating everything sacrificing redundancy!

    On my 53, the Flagship chillers are controlled with off the shelf relays and thermostats with LED diagnostics. Simple, cheap and easy to fix.

    Buyers beware.

    This is one of the reasons I don't want to replace my old line voltage Honeywell stats even though they have a wide temp swing.

    I wouldn't worry about that. I removed mine in 2008 and replaced with the FX1 boards and have never touched one since.

    I had one of those boards on my 55 and had to send it to Flight Systems. The old original ones on the other 3 units were still going when I got rid of her
