Defroster hose routing/connections
« on: October 11, 2017, 08:05:30 PM »
Not sure if this is the correct place for this, but here goes:
We had a stylus pen from a phone make its way down the defroster vent. We have a Vista 27N motorhome. I don't see an easy way to get to the hose to retrieve the pen, it looks like a 1 piece console which would take considerable time to remove to get to the hoses. I can't see the bottom of the defroster hose or what it's connected to. It didn't make it into the fan or anything as the heater and AC work fine. I don't think there is enough metal in the pen to try and remove with a magnet. Any thoughts?

You can use a borescope (also called inspection camera, endoscope, etc.) like this one to locate the stylus and a grabber or some of the scopes have pickup attachments. Great opportunity to buy a new tool  :D.

Oh, I had to rescue my wife's phone from the dash area, we have a pull out shallow tray in the center console near the floor. She put her phone in that tray and the phone was so thin it slipped behind the tray. Fortunately I could remove the tray to retrieve her phone  :P .
