Maybe a Coil brush they sell for refrigerators and compressed air as stated.

Your family will have a blast there!! My daughter and her husband bought season passes.

If you're looking for a place to camp, try Lincoln State Park. It's less than 5 miles from HW and runs about $25 bucks a night. Where Lake Rudolph is easily double that amount and you don't feel like you're camping on top of one another.

Here's a link to Lincoln State Park where you can see the individual sites and all the specs, i.e., length, shaded vs. unshaded and whether or not they accomodate a slide-out. You can also book one on-line: (HINT.... Start looking at sites 001 thru 150 for electric)

HAVE FUN!!!

Once you tap into the refrigerant line to attach gauges with a piercing valve, you have to fix the puncture, sweat in a shredder valve, evacuate and recharge the unit. So if it doesn't matter if it was charged correctly or not. You have created unnecessary work. Charge can be checked by measuring the compressor amp draw with a clamp-on meter. A RV tech should know how to do that.

Re: Air Conditioning question

What speed do you have the fan on? If it's on low it will freeze up in humid conditions.

I don't understand where people get the idea that an AC will freeze up in humid conditions. That's what air conditioning does, it removes humidity. It will not freeze unless the evaporator temperature falls below 32 degrees. In order for that to happen, the unit can be low on charge, not likely because these units only hold a pound of refrigerant. If you get a leak, you loose the entire charge. Anything that restricts air flow can cause freezing. That can be a dirty coil or a collapsed duct. it can happen by discharge air being fed back across the coil instead of being directed out the supply registers.

I have the same trouble on low coo and was told by the dealer that it's normal to freeze when it's hot and humid, Now I am wondering if he just does not want to fix as it is under warrenty

Thanks, I tried to use compressed air and a brush to clean it. I do think I cleaned a lot out of it, but it still froze up on us in Kentucky. Once it warms back up in Illinois, I am going to try it again at our house and try some other suggestions, it is frustrating and if I wasn't such a cheap skate I would take it back to the stealership and let them look at it. Which will probably happen soon.

Thanks again for all suggestions.

Yes it would.
