Bedroom A/C Issues

So we are headed out tonight and were setting up the 5er today.

Living Room's A/C Blows Siberian cold Bedroom is cooler than outside, but not anywhere the chilly cold of the LR.

The BR A/C worked Fine over memorial day weekend. Now, not so much.

Went up on the roof to take a look, all looks OK only thing I have noticed is the BR A/C is not draining water like the LR A/C is.

Any ideas out there?

TIA,

Bob

If the coils are clean and fan blowing like it should could be you have a refrigerant leak.

I.E. "not sweatin back" on the cold lines.

(ex was old school a/c repair...he could properly charge a unit with Freon by "feeling" the Freon lines)

I'd agree with Presley

Started another thread this morning just in case it is a different issue....now the LR A/C is whistling sheesh!

The rig is not even 8 months old...hard to imagine having a refrigerant leak in both units...

Gonna call the RV dealer at our destination to see if they can look at our rig...more to follow

Bedroom A/C Issues

:cry: July 4th camping trip a nogo...for some bizarre reason BOTH A/C units have failed. Coleman is already closed for the 4th and they can't get warranty parts until next week. :sigh:

Now you can mount your poles, pull the tops off the ac units, line them with reflexit and paint the outsides white. OR do what I plan on doing this weekend, NOTHING! Gotta practice as I'm signing with the pro's next week.

Don't cancel! Google "$15.00 air conditioner" and make up a couple of those for the trip.

wmtire saw it the first time I posted about it here, said he was gonna make up a couple...if he can do it I KNOW you can!

My AC isn't really cooling us, either. 92 inside, 95 outside. I'll call RVW on Monday to see about having it checked.

Weezer.....

I love small Family owned Alabama RV dealers!!!

When they saw how bummed we were, they got our the living room A/C partly!!! Repair (warranty) will happen next week. We have a fan to blow in the bedroom And AND AND.... When we got to the CG a wind was blowing over the TN river and the highs are only gonna be in the lower 80s this weekend and 50-60° at night WOOT!

Got here a tad late in the day (1745) but we are partly set up now and sipping adult beverages as the char su pork loin grills.

Some bean sprouts to have as a side dish and dinner is served on the shores of the TN river!!

Oh and before you say anything OC YES I am working on the awning support poles in the morning
