Thiss is a great site! New here and my first post. I've been unable to find some of what i'm looking for but this may help.
I just reserected a 1975 Argosy 28 from an Aspen glade in Colorado and returned home to Texas after packing bearings and buying new tires, plugged it in to shore power to find the A/C blew air but not cold. Frige did not cool on Elec either. Water and LPG to be tackled later.
I asked an HVAC friend over and we pulled the "squirrel cage" apart (20+ poprivets, is that normal?) to find it still held factory charge of R-22. We CHANGED AWG in extention cords, went below to the thermostat switch and jumped it. There she blows, 50+ degree air. Did you check the thermostat? (the one with the temp lead coming out the back side). I have been fortunate with this salvage. After getting the roof back together and finding a new Ranco switch, I'll be onto the frige.

That's it.... I replaced the breaker, which was the problem, as it turns out and the AC does not cut off anymore.
However, I think the compressor is going out. It's just blowing air which isn't cold. I think this is the original, 20 year old unit, so I suppose it did good, considering there is only a 2 year warranty on these Colman units.
Any idea if the above is true, and if so, what's a good place to get a Colman AC unit? Is it possible to find a used one?
