Wasn't really aimed at you Mel. I just got thinking about it and Googled it just to see. I don't think we have ever used one of them so not familiar. Thought I would share the answer.

Well this may be off target but I crawled up on the roof and removed the air conditioner cover, and the people that were not bickering over fires and answered my question was right the seal around the sealed part or the unit was leaking bad, I sealed it with latex chalk will that hold? (now don't fight over chalk now please).

LATEX, oh my gosh, NEVER use latex

Just kidding but sorry I couldn't help it.

Reminds me of post I read one time that said silicone caulk would not stick to fiberglass....... but to remove it said you would need silicone caulk remover!!

Off topic? Funny man! It's the rest if us who seem to get sidetracked and silly, of course. Or off course, if you prefer!

I'm glad you found some good suggestions and that one of them works for you. Ain't no fun camping if you can hardly breathe!

Cheers!

Isn't that fun! You ask a simple question..... But really, I am glad you got it fixed, in spite of all the crazy side tracking going on here. Maybe some one should start a thread about campfires. As apposed to how to stop air leakage of smoke into the AC unit.

I'm sorry if my comment about the fires got things started. I did try to focus on the problem, I had no idea it would be so enticing.

I used foil tape on mine. I can't imagine the product you used should be a problem. Was it a big hole?

We all seem to like to take the ball and run with it here. Even if it is in the wrong direction When someone has a tail light out we can discuss what the best tail lights are, where to get them at the best price and how 12 volts flows through them. We might even tell the OP how to fix them.

I plead guilty BTW.

DW and I have been out on the road the last 3 weeks and have been staying at parks that have a no fire policy. Two CG had a common area where you could stop by and enjoy a controlled campfire and meet other campers.

Have never experienced any smoke, fumes etc to be introduced through any RV AC we have owned, All recycled internal air only.

We have not used a wood campfire for many years. I used to carry wood, but there are often restrictions about bringing wood from other jurisdictions, so we stopped that and bought a propane fired campfire from CW. We love it, no smell, soot, sparks etc, and can adjust/kill the flame instantly as required. Can be used even during many "campfire restricted" areas.

We had an awning destroyed by sparks from a neighboring campsite a few years ago also. Some people think a big roaring campfire is cool, with sparks flying everywhere and it is too hot to get close to the flames. And indeed the smell can be unpleasant if the wrong fuel is used. Agree a campfire goes with camping but as in everything, common sense must be applied.

With the propane unit we can get upclose to the fire and roast marshmellows, wieners etc and adjust the flame for the occasion. Can also put it under my awning if I want to and can put a cooktop on it to cook almost anything. I carry an external propane tank for my fireplace, but there is no reason why an outlet from the internal tanks could not be used.

We have a permanent propane campfire for my stickhouse and internal gas fireplaces in our house. Works for us and beats cleaning up all the mess created by wood fires. We can fire up the gas units anytime and shut them down just as quick.

Wondered how many others use gas fired campfires and just find them more convenient.

To get back to your problem .... can you be more specific about the leak? If it's between the A/C unit and the roof you should replace the seal with the correct heavy foam seal. If the leak was around the cover to the plenum (the cover over the evaporator) it may last awhile but also should be replaced with something more like weatherstripping.

A quick picture of the area would be a help.

THIS IS a thread about campfires! Camp fire smoke getting into coach through a/c, but morphed to gripes about campfires in general.
