Perform an AC Checkup
Posted By Good Sam On August 1, 2013 @ 6:00 am In RV Tips | No Comments
The dog days of summer seem intent on pushing the mercury to new heights. Fortunately, RV air conditioners can turn a potential oven into a cool, comfy refuge. Take the following steps to ensure that your main source of climate comfort continues to run reliably.
• Clean or change the AC filter. Unclean filters cut airflow, and that creates efficiency problems. If you’re using your AC regularly, clean the filter weekly.
• Inspect the upper shroud for cracks and exposure deterioration. Clear any debris like dead branches that may have accumulated there. If a shroud is damaged, have it replaced.
• Check the gasket between the air conditioner and roof. A damaged gasket can result in leaks that allow water through the roof.
• Make sure the air conditioner’s coils are cleaned once per year. This procedure should be performed by a qualified technician.
• Don’t under-power your AC. To avoid brown-out damage to your AC’s motor, ACs should have at least 30-amp power.
Follow these tips to make sure you don’t break a sweat this summer.
