A/C problems and leveler too!

ugh .... Driving to Louisiana with no dash a/c is not something I want to continue to do. I think I will have to have it charged but just finding someone or some place to do that has not been successful....any suggestions? Second problem....my right leveler would not retract. I finally wedged a crowbar under it and forced it up. Now I am afraid to lower it again! It wasn't easy to force it up! Any suggestions on that issue? My friend keeps telling me that these are the issues that we face as RVer's but I say "who said camping was fun?"

Not sure about your slide but your a/c problem may be something as simple as the heater valve is not closing. On many models it is controlled by a cable that runs from the dash to under the hood. Look under the hood and locate the heater hoses. One of the hose should have a valve in it. I put a little pressure on it by hand while someone else turns the knob. If I don't enough warm water gets in the system to keep the a/c from being really cold. I probably should put a manual cut-off in the line but for now this works. Hopefully yours is an easy fix too.

Fire up your generator and run your house air on the road.

Don't know if your generator is diesel, gas, or propane but it is better to feel good in my mind than worry about generator fuel use. If diesel or gas powered, the generator will not run with less than 1/4 tank of fuel.

Many of us with a diesel generator do this anyway.

I've just had a problem with a leaking jack that wouldn't stay down (as it was loosing pressure), but in my research it was noted that keeping them lubed with a silicon spray will help. Silicon also doesn't allow dirt and debris to attach itself to the rams.

The spray also helps prevent rusting and keeps the seal pliable.

May just need a ball valve for better dash cooling.
