AC unit bench test

Hello there fellow campers,
I took the roof mount AC unit off my class c while I do some renovations and have the roof replaced. Is there anyway to bench test the unit before I lug it up back onto the RV roof and find out its not working very well?? Id like to find out early so i can have it serviced if it needs to be. Thanks to all that answer.

Just put it on a picnic table so that the outlet is not blocked, wire it up to an AC cord and plug it into a outlet. Let it run a while, then measure the temp of the air with a pocket thermometer. It should get down to 20F (+/- 6F) less then ambient.

re: a/c bench test

Thanks Jim,
Thats how i thought I could do it but just wanted to make sure. Since I live in Upstate NY and at the typing of this reply its about -10 out with the wind chill I'm gonna wait till it warms up a little before putting it out on the picnic table. If I do it now I'll walk back into the house with 3 adams apples! -LOL Or I could fire it up in the garage, naw I'll wait till it get warmer. Thanks for your response.

probably wouldn't hurt to take the cover off and clean it while it's out
