AC concern

The AC is been acting up recently in that the volume of air has decreased. Such that on warm days itís simply cannot pull the trailer. Today I heard some noises in the unit and then after a few minutes I heard a lot of noise... sounding like the breeze blowing through the duck work. Makes me wonder if there had been a mud dauber nest. How could something get in the ductwork like that? How does one clean it out? Is there any servicing on the roof of the trailer that is necessary to keep the air-conditioner functioning at its best?

I should clarify that after the debris was blowing through the vents the volume of air increased and it begin cooling the trailer. So it seems like the issue has been solved but I need a little guidance on how to clean it up and prevent it from happening again

Ok, it did it again. Left the trailer for 9 hrs. AC on. Get back...hot trailer. Turn AC to fan only, go take a shower, turn AC on...cold air. ??

Do you have the fan on low, if so.it's probably freezing up. Run the fan on high and it won't freeze.

How often do you clean the cold air return foam filters?

If they are dirty they restrict the air flow.

I wondered if that was still an issue with ACs. I recall it as a kid with a window unit.

Yes, Missouri loves itís humidity.
