Air Conditioner Filter......

Looking outside at @ 18" of snow and the temp around -10C. I really shouldn't be thinking about air conditioning.
But I do have time to read the coach manual. Regarding the roof air units it says to make sure the intake filters are clean. But it doesn't say where they are. Typical.....
This is a ducted ceiling and I can't see where any filters would be.
Anyone??
Thanks , Iver.

If you have roof ACs, it is that ~12" square white thing on the ceiling that has louvers. There will be a couple tabs you press to let a window come off. The foam filter should be there. If you have basement AC, I can't help you, but I think there would be a return vent for it too.

As posted by dunner, if you have the foam ones you remove them, try to remove as much of the dust while it is dry as you can. I use the sticky side of duct tape to blot the filter. After that wash it in soap and water, reinse well and let it dry. Then replace. Also you can by the foam material at the big box store and cut out a couple of spares. I rotate mine out each month. Hope this helps you out.

If you have ducted air you will have your exhaust vents as well as your return air vents. We have a series of vents running down the center of our coach. Eight of each to be exact. One side is the exhaust air. The other side is the return air, these are the ones that should have the filters. Our vents are round but I assume they may make some that are rectangular or square as well. If you don't have the filters on them I'm sure your local rv dealer might have or can order them. I purchased the sponge filter material form WalMart and cut my own. To clean them all you have to do is rinse them with water and towel dry them or just cut some new ones.

Here's a question. Does anybody make an evap cooler for a MH? I camp from Oct-May and it sometimes gets over 85 in my MH. It would be nice to have something to lower the s just using my Yamaha EF2000iS generator. Something that hangs inside or outside of a window. I don't know if Google would know what I'm talking about.

Not a rant... well kinda. I'm curious as to why folks don't read to see MONACO SIG in the guys post. Obviously doesn't have plastic grilles on the ceilings. The other day a Winnie guy posts a picture of belt pattern totally different from Monaco.

Just woondering....New Year's resolution read and see if the answer fits the question...or are you just trying to build numbers of posts??

ON the Sig you have to drop the ceiling upholstered or mirrored panels to expose the filters. held on by three or four bolts, and hinged on one side...feel around you will find them, let the piece down very gently, the heavy ones can strain the hinge. Best to have help the first time you do it. There will either be permanent filters you can vacumn or replaceables.

Hope this helps.

Topman, have you got a double layer ornate ceiling in your Sig like in the picture below. If so you have to remove three 7/16 bolts on the center section from the drivers side and it is hinged and the whole thing will swing down and you can get two of the foam filters. The bedroom has just two bolts on the drivers side and will swing down. IWhen I take the bolts out I do the middle one first and stick a phillips screwdriver in the bolt hole as a safety device until I get the others out. Then I wash my hands so I don't put dirty handprints on the ceiling then hold on and pull out the screwdriver and let it swing down. Twomed this picture should explain it all to others as to what you are saying.

Twomed, did not mean to step on anyones toes. I was not aware of what type of ceiling covers he had. I was just trying to help him out. I should have known that the 2000 sig had the filters hidden under the other plastic covers, and not just a regular plastic grate like we have.

Thanks very much Twomed and Mike.

I really don't think I could have figured that one out myself.
The manual tells you WHAT to do. Just not HOW to do it.
Now I know.
Again, Thanks, Iver.
