Default Dash air blower motor location?

I am trying to get the dash air on my 94 Working. When I turn the blower motor switch on the amp gauge shows a 40 amp draw and the blower does not run, wires at the back of the switch look fine.
I can see the air ducts going under the passenger seat. If it is under there I will probably have to pull up part of the hardwood floor to get to it. Thanks,Paul

Look in the front basement compartment on passenger side. Your blower motor might be in the front of that compartment.

Looks like it's going to be a short in condenser fans,checked the blower motors and the compressor and they are fine.

Paul,
When it came time to look at our A/C I made the decision to not worry about the Dash A/C. When it did work it blew Cold Air at my Knees and they hurt when Cold. After looking at all of the Costs of converting to 134A it made more sense for us to simply run the Generator and the Roof A/C units. The coach stays cooler and the Gen gets Exercised.
Not saying that is for you, just what I decided

Paul, are you saying you repaired the short and it's now working? I agree with Steve, but each his own.

No, have not crawled under the coach and looked at it yet, . It gets pretty hot down here in s. Texas and the basement airs do not keep it as cool as I would like while driving. Hopefully it will not take to much to get it going. Thanks,Paul

Sorry, We have Roof Airs so my advice may not work for you.

Some of us continue to learn something new everyday. I wasn't even aware that the basement airs won't keep the coach cool running off the generator while rolling down the road. Basement air owners, why is that?

Actually, that is the first I'd heard that basement airs don't cool well while driving. I know they don't on Newell's with slides but on non slide units that shouldn't be an issue. It might be time to take a peak at your AC units and have them serviced.
