1998 Fleetwood Southwind parts?
« on: October 28, 2017, 07:46:13 AM »
My neighbor just purchased a 1998 Fleetwood Southwind Storm and the dash air vents are all broken. Does anyone know where he might find parts for an older coach like that?

Scrap Yards come to mind. Here is a list of possible parts sources (not all scrap yards BTW) from our Resources section:

They are probably a part that Fleetwood used in many coaches over many years, so chances of finding them in an RV salvage yard are good, or maybe even new ones are still available from Fleetwood.  Further, they will be from an regular HVAC industry component source and not unique to Fleetwood, so searching around online should find a replacement as well.

Proline is one manufacturer of those vents, and Summitt Racing carries several models.

Or search around on this site:
