Air Conditioner

Our Cross Road air conditioner has never cooled our 32' RV. We have it in the shop again & are thinking we need to add a larger unit if possible. We also have a problem with blowing fuses.

Do you have a 5 th wheel? We have a 32' we had condenser replaced 2 nd year, never seemed to cool right, Had a lot of problems with out slide out on kitchen side, we store our camper in our 40 x 80 garage with doors open daily. We use our camper about 8 weeks out of a year & most campgrounds down south are in direct sun. My husband took our camper to Swap Shop & were told not set up for a 2 nd. air unit, while on roof to ck air unit it was determined that we need an entire new roof at the cost of $4,800.00

Check with RV Armour for your roof,instead of just replacing the original, it may not be any cheaper but it is permanent, they come to you to install & guaranteed forever.

This is why we ask everybody to post their -- Make, Model, and year of their RV in their signature.

It eliminates the need for these questions.

Never heard of anyone replacing the condenser on an RV AC. They are basically a chunk in the junk unit when they don't work. You have a reputable service company do that?

Back in that period of time, The channels running to the AC out let were not done right. Pull the outlets Look inside and you will see where the duct does not seal. Tape up that gap with Duct tape. Makes a big difference. With out that you are trying to cool the roof

Yes, was a reputable service company. In fact did not have problems with it working since, just does not seem to be a large enough unit to cool RV down when it is so hot outside!

I see you're in Florida. I don't think one AC is gonna cut it there. We have a fifth wheel, and two 15K BTU units struggle in the Texas heat.
