Maintaining Your RV AC unit

RV ac units are similar to split system ac units with the condenser and compressor units installed outside on the roof, and the air-cooling unit installed inside on the ceiling. One cooling unit suffices for an entire office, however, if the space is over 35 feet in length, you may require 2 units. With the summer around the corner, below are some ideas to keep the RV in good operating condition.

The filter must be replaced or cleaned at least once a month. Disposable filters need to be changed once a month when the RV ac unit is in use, and the reusable filters need to be cleaned with water and left to drip dry before reinstallation. You must prevent having clogged filters, as they would lead to less efficiency, greater running costs, and possible troubles with various other parts of the system, such as the evaporator coil. A damp cloth with a little detergent ought to be used to clean the whole unit to eliminate dirt and dust.

The RV ac unit's efficiency might be seriously hindered if the evaporator coil is not kept clean and devoid of damages. Considering that this coil is located on the back of the roof, it is most prone to damage caused by trees, leaves, and various other environmental threats. In addition, the cold refrigerant is circulated in these coils. It is, therefore, essential to clean these coils with a soft bristled brush to eliminate collected dirt. It would be a good idea to provide covers for the fins and coils.

As a lot of condensation may happen due to the external location of the RV ac units, the gasket seal in between the ceiling and the bottom of the unit must be checked routinely. The drainage holes in the condensate pan need to be cleared of debris, such as leaves to prevent leakage of the condensate into the RV, and clogs have to be removed at the earliest.

Before going on a summer vacation, you ought to start your RV ac unit and make sure that all systems like the fan and temperature level controls work appropriately. The power source must be sufficient for running an RV ac unit. A 15-amp extension cord to the RV ac unit might not be sufficient to provide the power required to run this unit. You have to check the power requirement, particularly the amperage, then make suitable plans to set up appropriate switches and circuit breakers. Insufficient power can bring about major damage to motors, compressors, and various other parts.Dallas TX Air Conditioning Repairs\nFor Info visit
