Spring is a great time to get started.
Inspect your AC shroud (cover). Go up on your RV roof. Is your shroud cracked? Damaged shrouds let moisture & debris inside.
Clean the air filter. Gently remove debris and dust with a soft brush, and vacuum cleaner attachment to clean the exposed unit.
Clean the Condenser and Evaporator Coils Repeat the air filter cleaning steps. For extremely dirty coils, try a condenser coil cleaner and evaporator coil spray.
Inspect the rubber gasket. Check for water leaks around the AC. Inspect the rubber gasket for damage or wear, and tighten the screws that hold your air conditioner in place.
