    everything on these units was built to fail. As a service company for aaon you only need 3 aaon accounts for each technician you have on board. It's a business owners dream. And if you hire right out of tech. School even better. 8 hours to hunt down a bad relay. Oh the leaks are the best on brand new units. Shake that money maker. As the tech. You just tell the customers I didn't build them I'm only here for the repair, do you know of a nice hotel near by. Or well sir I'm the only authorized aaon service company within 8 hours so you are aware of drive time? Boom shake your money maker. Then after 8 hours of failed programming of a jace you say I have to go back to the shop and let the boss try to reprogram this piece of garbage. I mean fine quality equipment. 16 hours drive time. Boom!!!$$$$.

    Where do I begin? Well, first, your attitude alone would get you thrown off most of my accounts before lunch. Next, if a guy took eight hours ot find a failed relay, he should fire himself. If you think being an authorized service and repair company means you are the only one who can service an AAON unit, you are GRAVELY mistaken, most of the guys on this board service them. We have a bunch of them under contract, mostly because the local "authorized service company" blows donkey dik. My guys are much better with AAON equipment than their "factory trained" techs are. We have been "authorized service company" for equipment much more complicated than aaon units for many years. I have had to send guys all over the country for "training". Usually when we get there( yes I usually go too) they find out we know their equipment better than they do.

    Finally, if you think someone would pay 16 hours of windshield time around here, its clear ot me that you live in Colorado and are taking too many chewables at the green mile. your mileage may vary.

    If you as a tech have that many problems with that many units that takes that long to find and fix, you as a tech are doing something wrong.

    You ought to be a Kohler Factory service tech for their environmental enclosures, my territory was N Texas S Oklahoma, they thought Houston and OK city were in north and south, 16 hours windshield time was normal, and they wouldn't let me stock any parts. I have had 33 chargeable hours replacing a $.50 air diaphragm

    But I loved every minute of it, and never bad mouthed the hand that fed me

    But back in the 80's those environmental enclosures sold for $40-60,000,so they made a killing on them

    around here there ate reps in every territory. the longest drive is no more than two hours within a territory. we have gone to other territitories on occasion because a local guy couldn't get to an issue or it was too complicated, but its rare.

    The serial number inside the door is nice. If it ends up as a POS it should break the manu not the installing contractor.

    I don't think the OP was saying it takes him 8 hrs to find a bad relay.

    I think he remarked about hiring techs right out of school that would take 8 hrs to find a bad relay...and how that was quite profitable.

    Just something I gleaned on the original read-through.

    When you look up RTUs in the Yellow Pages, the Aaon units are just above the Aardvard units.
