condensate line plugged?

Hey. This is something I have encountered before, at least a few times. Make sure the condensate line that drains the water from your air conditioner isn't plugged. That will also cause it to frost up...and not cool.

Fixed the problem of the coils frosting over there is a wire that runs to the coils that when the start to frost it cuts the compressor off. Hooked it up and took care of that. Now just waiting to see how it does today. I always run fan on auto I was told that that is high

its great the MFG put that bulb there to stop icing. the underlying cause is what your after. if the door is open a lot in humid weather ect...then you may get icing. but after the coach dehumes it should go away. if the seal between the discharge and return air leaks, then cold air gets mixed in and icing occurs. that is the most common cause of frost buildup. pull the grill and check the seal between the two. shower and cook with exhaust fans on.

Interesting you say others in cg having the same problem. ........
Is the cg experiencing low voltage?
If you had a progressive industries ems you'd be able to tell.
I'd check incoming voltage!

I am just glad they are fixing it. It was actually acting up at a different cg last weekend. So I don't think it was low voltage. But I could be wrong. The my boss has his camper right next to me and his was fine. I don't know.

Yes they did replace it with a new one. He did at they had to start using a different Freon in them. He said they check a board first and if it's not that they don't recharge them. They replace it with a new one.
