Ducted Interior Roof A/C Intake Filters

I've been cleaning with soap and water the foam-like air cleaners for air intake into the A/C.

Any other observations on these? I am a filter clean freak, so I clean them at the slightest sight of dust or dirt....I am wondering if I should use somthing other than dish soap (dawn) and water?

Also, is there something easier than the four screws (I know, lazy for sure) I could use to keep the grills in place? It would be nice to have like a turn screw or something....

Thanks!

Hi Lincolnboy2,
Not sure how long you've owned the coach but being a filter clean freak, in a coach, will keep you quite busy. Dust and many other airborne contaminants are always entering the coach (moving or stationary). I clean mine once a month. I just vacuum the filter and reinstall. My filters are in each return ceiling duct. The center of the duct pulls down to reveal the filter. CW sells them. Your coach manufacturer may also sell them.

Mine has 4 screws that have to be removed so the grill drops out and the foam "filter" mesh just lays on top of the grill with velcro like stickies to keep it from sucking up into the plenum...

Yours is a lot better system and easier to get to. No, actually I've only cleaned them 3 or 4 times in the last year, so I guess its not that bad...

Hi Kent. Here is a photo of mine. The smaller rectangle drops down by turning the black screw and that's where the filter is. I clean mine every two weeks with dish soap and water.

Cliff, this is a picture of mine....4 long screws. But the thing is, I don't have any more air intake than yours...its only about a quarter of the entire grid... What a whiney baby I am complaining about this, but it would be so much easier to just have a twist lock of some fashion....

Like yours!
