Default cruise air systems

I have had four Blue Birds over a period of many years but am out now and wanting to get back in. One unit that I'm looking at is a 1983 coach that has cruise air units for A/C. I have never had these, always just had the roof units.

Do these work well? A lot of maintenance problems? Noisy inside when running?

What are your ideas and suggestions about having these units?

Thanks

Hi Dave,
Todd's link will answer your primary question. I wanted to let you know that I have a 1985 PT 36 for sale. You can see it on Randy's site: www.buybyebluebird.com. It's the blue, blue, blue one.

I have them on mine. They are more quiet than the roof units plus there isn't the condensation water dripping problem.

The only issue I have is my middle unit has a leak at the king valve requiring a recharge until I can get it replaced. I love them.

Have 3 on ours. Love the quietness inside with them running.
A lot of boats have them also.
Also have a roof air that we run when going down the road.
We don't use the units while doing down the road so no dirt and heat gets into the units.
Not to expensive to fix if just valves that need replacing.

In cruise-air equipped birds, where's the condenser mounted?

Default Cruisair location

They are under the drivers side just past the pass through compartment in the basement on my bus.

On our 83 FC 35 SB the forward unit is drive side behind the wheel, the galley unit is curb side just behind the wheel and the rear unit is curb side behind the rear wheels.
