'76 Argosy Dash A/C
My local RV dealer said that the compressor was bad on the rooftop A/C and recommended a complete new unit. However, they looked at the install and it would take a lot of drilling and etc. to replace.
So, I took it to a local A/C repair shop. Turns out it was the Thermostat, not the compressor ($50 vs $400). He is totally evacuating the old Freon 22, drying it for 24 hours and recharging. Should be good to go.
In regards to the dash A/C. I replaced everything, dryer and compressor. The problem is the evaporator valve that is stuck. Seems the whole coach was built around the metal bax containing the evaporator and labor to cut and get to it is prohibitive (almost $1000 !!). Any easy solutions out there?
Nice to have at least one "cheaper" fix for a change!
