I have seen perfectly good roof air replaced because the evaporator was plugged with crud.

Google cleaning RV roof air evaporator or coils.


OK. Thanks.

We are experiencing tripld digit/high 90s heat. Although the controls are set on 68 or so, the coach will no cool down below around 82. Any ideas on a solution?

Just two
one is shade. Frankly when the outside is high 90's with sun the Roof top A/C won't keep up

I am not suggesting more A/C cause you will hit the power limit of your site (though a small portable (Ducted) in the bedroom might help)

Tahquamenon falls State Park. Look it up. Should be cooler there.


Home is where I park it.

Is rhe rear of your unit much cooler than the front? That is normally the situation in our coach and we found out when we were in 100+ in Redding, CA that placing a 20" box fan in the doorway of the bedroom blowing towards the front pulled that cool air towards the front sufficiently for us to be comfortable -very cheap temporary fix for a temporary problem.

Our unit is 3 yrs old and I just had an HVAC guy look at it. Domestic brand. He had to add a bunch of refrigerant. Had to add a piece to be able to do it. Much cooler now and no freezing up anymore.


Did he FIX the leak the Gas leaked out of?? If not it's gonna HAPPEN AGAIN.

We have a 35ft. motorhome with ducted air and we replaced a ceiling vent fan with a Atwood Air Command 13,500 BTU non-ducted Air Conditioner. We spend a lot of time in Palm Desert and the River. It makes a huge difference having both airs running.
