I too bought the roll of insulation and tape. They did not carry the spray adhesive listed but I found some by Loctite that should do. I already had some 1/2 foam pipe insulation.

Just waiting on a break in the heat to do both of mine.

As mentioned in the FR forum, I'd be worried the unit would be more prone to icing up if wrapped with Reflectix.

I'm going to wrap the large pipe and seal the box up and go from there. If you guys report consistent positive results I'll wrap it later.

I finished this mod tonight. It's going to be 90 tomorrow so I'm going to hang out in RV maņana and chk it out. I didn't get every inch covered bc it got dark but its 95% covered and large pipe covered.

Should I revisit tomorrow or is that okay?

This thread got me curious about my AC so I had to take a look-see. My AC/heat pump is a Coleman Mach 15. The box that is being insulated in this thread is a squared off metal box on my AC. It's insulated on the inside as evidenced by pulling the internal filter. The ducting consists of channels being cut into the styrofoam insulation. Everything appeared to be connected as good as can be expected. Just an FYI for those who have the same unit as it appears there's nothing that needs to be done to the ACs.

You need to spray out the condenser coil (the outside one) I'm telling you that's the easiest way to return performance to the unit. It's a basic maintenance issue that nobody does. Including the one hooked to your house. A clean coil means better efficiency, lower amp draw on the compressor. Make sure the fins on the coil aren't damaged from hail damage.

The cover on the Mach 15 also covers the outside coils/fins. I pulled this cover and none of the fins were bent. By all outward appearances they looked clean, not even dusty. Blowing on them produced no visible dust in the air.
