Roof air con

Hello fellow Rvers from across the pond.

My roof air con is a bit weedy and I know you used to be able to get a kit to refill the sealed system using a self cutting valve and a canister of gas.

Now that gas has been banned for environmental reasons is there another solution?

Yours Hopefully

PS We love your President

RV Roof Top A/C Units are sealed for a reason....they are 'throw away units'

By the time you have valves installed, system vacuumed, recharged...labor/parts you would only need a few more $$ to buy NEW

Is it time for YOUR medication or MINE

RV air conditioner units are sealed for a reason, but that reason is the federal government (EPA?) requires them to be sealed from the factory with no service ports even though it is legal to add service ports later, it is often cost prohibitive to do so.

When my rear unit went flat the local RV repair shop tapped and filled it for $125. The could not find a leak. Worked great for 6 months then same thing. I had the shop replace it. They charged less to replace it than I could buy the unit and do it myself. My front unit is acting up now, fan bearings. I will NOT try to repair it. After upcoming fishing trip I will have them replace it.
