A/C Problems ????

Hello All
Bought our new 2015 Grey Wolf 26RL in Nov. and was sure to get the 15K air conditioning unit, due do living in Southern Ga.
Well our first use of the air this week, blowing out ice cold air, so great,but as time went on it seemed to take a lone time to cool down the unit ( although the outside temp. was only in the high 70's ) it finally shut off ,and never came back on, as the temp inside went well above the thermo. setting. Got nice and cool that night, so just turned it off.

Got home and did the same test, same results, and saw a lot of condensate still dripping from the gutters well after the unit shut down ?, frooze up ??? Only in the 80's, brand new unit, under warrentee

Opinions please !!!!

Jim

Measure temperatures at the outlet and inlet and see the difference. It sounds like you might be freezing up the evaporator coils, which is usually a result of restricted air flow and high humidity. Make sure all vents are open fully. The temperature drop difference after the first minute or so should be the same after an hour or two. If not, then it's freezing up. The systems are closed systems, coolant can't be added to them. If you get repeated freeze ups, take it to a service center for your A/C brand.

Freeze ups are possible.. Where in Southern GA are you.. I am in Townsend/Darien area... I can not fix an air conditioner save for a couple of very minor issues... But I do housecalls with diagnosis help.

Can't see it being either of the two, all vents open and low humidity this time of year for southern Ga. ( Just to the west of Brunswick ). Have had the unit on several trips since nov. when we bought her, heat works great and this was the first time we tried to use the air. Will try it again tomorrow, then it's back to Camping World under warrentee.

Our old 2000 Springdale never had any a/c problems !!!!

The RV AC units always work, until they don't. Tell them to R&R the unit.

you said you were in the high 70's outside?

Could be the AC was overcooling and freezing up.

Happens to my home unit and my RV 13.5 when it gets below 80 outside....

try opening a window...lol

Well.. if you are just west of Brunswick then you are near me.. I'm in Townsend/Dariean area..3 miles north of Interstate 95 exit 49 Just exit and turn north,, When the road curves right,, Continue straight to the far end of the white rail fence....Log in park and say hi to me... We can check it out.
