I have a problem my air on my fifth stopped blowing cold air. It's three year's old. I went on roof and took off cover and found this oily stuff all over the fan. What can I do.

Sounds like your refrigerant leaked out.

Dometic carrys a 3 year warranty, if that helps. Since the compressor/motor/refrigerant, is a sealed unit, just replacing the refrigerant will likely be a waste of money. Something caused this (apparent) massive leak. I think it's time for a professional RV, A/C inspection.

If you have a refrigerant leak, there should be an oily area on one of the lines from the leak source. If the condenser has a leak the oil should be more on the outside as the fan will blow the air through the condenser.

Make sure the compressor is running before you condemn the unit. Check the motor amps.
