I have two Penguin 15,000 units on my MH. The front unit does not cool the front area. The back unit is OK. Cool air is coming out of the ducts, however, The tempreture does not cool the front area. Temp stays about 78 degrees. The outside temp was 86 today. Do these units have freon or some other refrigerant? It was in the shop last week and they told me everythging works fine. They said the front ducts was 62 degrees and the rear A?C was 58 degrees. Does this sound right???

Your Dutch Star should have multiple return vents and discharge vents in the ceiling. With the rear air off and the front air on, measure the temperature of the air of return air vent. Then measure the temperature of the discharge air vent; you should have allowed the unit to run for a good 5 minutes and have about 20 - 25 degrees difference between these readings. What reading are you getting? If after several hours these reading change drastically then your coil may be freezing up. Let us know the test results.

I have the identical year and model DSDP as you and have put 27,000 miles on it. The a/c units on ours are 13,500 BTUs and they have no problem keeping the front and rear cool. Last year we spent a week in Texas with daily temperatures in the low 100s and the MH stayed comfortable.

Could there be a big incoming heat issue from the front windsheild?
