Replacing AC Shroud - Clean Armstrong Too?

I plan on replacing the AC shroud on my 79-31' Intl with a "new one" (from Inland). I am wondering if I should attempt to clean the AC unit while I have the old shroud off and if so, how should I go about it. Thanks, Montanaandy

Take the covers off and wash it out with a water hose.

Won't hurt a thing.

That's all it takes is water? What about the coil cleaners I see. Any use buying that. I'm dealing with a 1976 Armstrong that works beautifully except for tripping the braker at times. It comes right back on but is certainly not dependable. Should I change out the breaker too when I clean the unit?

Yes, just plain water will clean the colis as well.

Or, if you wish, sprtay them with a little liquid soap first.

Are you using an extension cord?
