2006 Travel Supreme Air Conditioner

Hello,
Our air conditioner freezes us out on 72 during the day. At night, we burn up on 67. We can't figure it out. Any suggestions on what to do?
Thanks,
Chuck

The coils could be freezing at night. If you are trying to run the AC too cold, it can cause the coils to ice over.

It sounds like you may have an air leak between the discharge side and the return side. They should be partitioned off completely to prevent short cycling of air.

The unit pulls the inside coach air through a filter media and across the evaporator coil. This area is the return. The heat in the air is removed and is then pushed back into the coach. This area is the discharge side. If you remove the ceiling assembly, or in some cases pull the roof unit off for those that have separate return ducting, you will see these ports. These must be sealed from each other or the evaporator coil will freeze up if the air is short cycled back through.

RV Wizard...1st, thanks for all your help. Do you think this is something that I could do or should I call a technician? The system works fine during the day. It kicks on and off as usual.

Chuck, everything is easy if you know how to do it
No one can say someone can do it or can not do it based on some words in a post. Only you know if you can do it.

Ask yourself this: Did you understand and comprehend what has been said about your situation? If yes...and you can work hand tools(if req'd)...then SURE you can do it.

If you did not understand what has been explained and or can not use hand tools(if req'd)...then call a pro
