Air Conditioning - sealing inside seams - anyone looked to see if it is needed?

I've watched a lot of trailer upgrades, fixes, modifications. But I never saw this one - sealing the seams in the air conditioning.

Go to 6:05 in the video to see what I mean. What do you think?

That is a well done video. I did the same on my air conditioners and it made quite a difference.

I'm of the more conservative 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'

I don't touch the blasted thing, and it leaves me alone. The last time I touched one of those finicky roof Air units the freon blasted out of it. I barely touched the compressor and suddenly frozen right hand

Yes, it looks like something everyone should check out.

I recently did the same as mod in our new camper and it made a huge difference in the AC performance.

I can hang meat in my trailer of I wanted to crank the AC way down. Some folks might benefit, some folks shouldn't touch anything in their trailer, and some folks don't need to do anything.

I'm wondering how long is your trailer and how many slides? I think it makes a difference. My old TT was 26ft with no slides. My new one is 28 with a super slide and the same size ac unit works way harder to keep up

It absolutely does make a remarkable difference. I have a 21' long body and no slides. I decided on this trailer in part because the AC and heat would work very well, and I would never have to worry about fixing anything with a slide.
