Need Roof AC Repair

We are currently traveling in central/eastern Kansas. One of our roof Dometic AC units does not produce cold air. Does anyone have a good recommendation of a facility in this area to do a repair? A mobile service would also be OK.

Thanks
Al

I think Flint Hills RV does onsite service.

They are located on east 54 Highway near Andover, Kansas

Here is their phone number.

I replaced my rooftop myself for $500 for a 1500 BTU Dometic. Only fix capacitors or a motor. If its freon related you need to replace it. Because of the RV application they always seem to leak.

Thanks for you response. I have made contact with an RV AC serviceman I Hutchison, KS. I'll keep you recommendation in mind once I get a cause.

If you are not under warranty, you can try to fix it yourself or take the RV in to have the air conditioner fixed. There are a few things you can look for when your Air Conditioner isn't cooling properly.Your AC just might not be strong enough. On a hot day your air conditioner could be outmatched. You could consider getting a second AC installed or upgrading your current AC. The rate at which your air conditioner can cool is measured in BTUs--the more BTUs the stronger the AC.If you believe your RV air conditioner is plenty big but is not cooling to its potential, there are a few things you can do to improve efficiency by maintenancing your AC.

Thanks to all who responded to my post. Yesterday, while in the Hutchinson, KS area I had the rear AC unit repaired. It was done by Dale Willem from Willem's Appliance Service. He came out to our campground site to do the repair.



Now as for the cause, well that's an interesting one. It seems that when the rig was repainted the AC unit's shroud was removed for painting. At some point the bracket that the shroud attaches to got bent. When someone from the painting crew went to install the newly painted shroud one of the holes didn't line up. So rather than bend the bracket back in place he apparently drilled another hole in the bracket. In doing so the drill went through the bracket and punctured the Freon line. Guess he kept it a secret!

Dale clearly stated, prior to doing the repair, that he could not be 100% sure of the fix. Some of the drill filings may have got into the coolant line and might later gum it up. I agree to take the chance. AMEN!
