Backwards ac?

I just had the gasket replaced under my ac and I noticed that the unit looked different. I now realize it was reinstalled backwards from the way it was originally sitting. There's no cold air blowing out anywhere now. Taking the grill off you see the filtered intake side is on the back end of the unit now and you can feel the cold air coming out around the plate covering the other half. I'm thinking the cold air has no way to enter the duct work from that end. True? Help please, as it is currently 83 degrees here in SC and sitting directly on the sun it's 91 inside.

It's a ducted Coleman Mach in a 2001 Fleetwood Wilderness Gl. Worked fine prior to gasket being replaced.

Take the 4 bolts out holding it on the bottom side.
Go on roof, lift it up and turn it around.
Watch to see if the wiring can move without any problem.

It will take 2 to lift and turn it.

Condenser fins on the roof AC should be facing the rear of the RV.

After you do that go back to the guy that did that & get your money back.

Second that... Get your money back.

Oh,,, and last time I checked... Only took one.. but then there are many cases where it takes two, or more, do do what ONE can do if he is big and strong enough (Think Rosy Grier v/s Don Knotts).

Friend with a fifth wheel--had the AC in for service, they replaced it under warranty. Got it back, took it camping--was flagged down on the highway and told his AC had blown off the trailer...putting it on in the wrong direction may not be the only thing wrong.

Thanks everyone. He came back and turns out there was a plate on the bottom that he put on backwards. He switched it and now it works fine. Took five minutes.

Father and son mobile RV techs with the son still learning and just in too much of a hurry. Dropped what they were doing and came and fixed it. Good guys. Honest mistake. Very embarrassed.
