AC freeze up
Came 265 miles home today from north east Texas. Fields along the road were flooded and the humidity was very high. There was severe flooding near my home, but we found home high and dry on the top of my hill.
First 150 miles was fairly cool (70s). Stopped for lunch at the Flying J (Denny's) at Waco and it was in the low 80s when we started home. I had the AC on and 2 bars on the fan. It started getting warm, so I went to 3 bars on the fan and then 4 bars. I soon noticed that I had very little air flow.
I turned the AC off and within half a minute, I had cool air and steadily increasing airflow. The ice took a couple of minutes to melt. When the air warmed, I turned the AC back on. No problem the rest of the way home.
I had icing problems in my 2014. Looks like the 2018 (2017 Sprinter) has the same icing susceptibility.
