Fixing an AC water leak (during rain- not running)
Yesterday we went to the storage yard to check on our trailer in preparation for a trip south that we hope to make next month.
The trailer has not been used since last Fall, but we noticed a very small amoun of water on the floor directly below the AC unit.
I will probably try to take a look to see what's up when we get to warmer weather!
I haven't had to do any work on the AC before, but I just did a little research and read that probably teh first thing I need to check is that the bolts accessible from inside the trailer and used to pull the AC down onto its foam gasket have not come loose.
So I am just wondering ......... do these bolts thread into the frame of the AC, or are there nuts up topside so that in order to tighten anything found loose, I would need to remove the AC shroud and have a second person up top with a wrench to hold the nuts?
Tightening any bolts found loose seems to be the only thing I will be able to try to address any leak from the AC.
I imagine that if the gasket needs replacement this is maybe something I would need to leave to a dealer since I suppose the unit needs to be lifted clear of the roof to install a new gasket. I have a bit of a back problem and would guess the thing is fairly heavy and maybe a two person job to deal with changing gaskets
Just trying to educate myself a bit before getting into it! Any advice or suggestions? Anything else it might be other than gasket related?
Thanks ............... Brian.
