RV Air Conditioner struggling to turn on
I donít know much about air conditioning so no time like the present to learn about them being an RV full timer. Just today for the first time we are noticing that our Bounderís rear AC unit appears to be struggling to turn on.
This morning when it turned itself on it took 1-2 minutes to seemingly spin up to enough speed before it kicked on and started making cold air. So basically a low whirring sound and you could hear it slowly building up speed speed before finally kicking into that sound where the fan speeds up and the cold air comes out.
Up to this point itís always just fired right up in a few seconds.
Itís a 2003 Bounder which we bought last year and have been living in it for the last year (two hot georgia summers now) so weíve obviously been putting it through itís paces more than it ever has in its lifetime so itís totally understandable that a lot of this 15+ year old systems are feeling their age.
Would love any direction or advice. The A/C does start up and get going but it appears itís having some trouble. We have two dogs in the rv and despite a lot of brushing and vacuuming we do see a lot of dander build up on the filters and I am constantly cleaning them. About 3 months ago i used a brush and cleaned the Air conditioners actual condenser (I think thatís right) fins off but hopefully itís not clogged full of dog stuff haha
Thanks in advance,
