You are correct. I have already looked up all the needed parts and have plans to do the major a/c overhaul, when and if the system has a problem. I am going to do my inspection process tomorrow. My girl has given me strict orders to get the grass cut, front and back yards, while the temps are low. I sitting at 57 degrees right now. Also have to do my dry rub on some sirloin and tri tip steaks for grilling later today for our surf and turf dinner plans here. I think my a/c noise inspection will be tomorrow and my trailer light concerns as well, since she will be here to run the lights while I am under the back of rig. I have another thread started about that concern.
I don't recall if it was with the '800 or '900, but there's an actuator on top of the plenum (maybe the one in question?) that, with a few easy tricks, is replaceable without all the hassle outlined in the shop manual. I'm pretty sure I recall someone posting pics and describing how to do it. It might be something as minor as low headroom and a 7mm (or is it 8mm? I always use a 9/32") nut driver bit in a 1/4" box end ratchet is the trick.
One of these:
In something like this:
It makes for a really low-profile nut driver. I use such a setup at work for one specific task. I have a zip tie on the shank of the bit that extends through the ratchet wrench. I had planned on drilling the bit to press a roll pin through to lose the zip tie and make it even more low-profile. But I like being able to easily remove the bit as needed.
