a/c cleaning

we got a silverback 31RK and the a/c in living room is very high up. our TT a/c was not too high and was able to reach up to clean filter. figure about a 6ft ladder? to reach that a/c? is that what everyone else does?

our first 5th. thanks.

We have a step stool for reaching the main AC. One of those with 2 steps I think. Store it in the front closet. If I'm lazy, I'll hop up on the countertop, which is in the right spot in our model. Don't like doing that but have a few times. For the few times I've done the modifications to the AC, I have drug a 6 foot ladder in there.

I guess all depends on just how tall you are. The step stool works for me at 5' 9".

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

i think i may need the 6ft ladder, as our a/c is at the apex of our ceiling. would happen to be at the highest point of course.

Same in ours. Just inside the main door at almost the highest point. Guess it depends on what I'm doing. Just changing a filter, step stool. Other maintenance where close access is necessary, ladder.

I have a step stool I use to reach things. The cover on my a/c broke 1st time I cleaned it. 2014 31 RK also.

I use a chair from the table most of the time but if I am lazy I will get on the counter. Depends on my mood.
