You need to get on to of your camper and remove the cover, typically a few larger screws and maybe washers will secure the housing cover; (is: the AC's on my unit has 3)

1. Check for any foreign objects between A/C (air conditioning) fan and cooling radiator, producing this loud noise. It is not uncommon for a small animal to have gotten on top of your camper and made its way inside the housing, especially if it has been in storage.

2. Look to see if you have any damaged or missing can blades. If material is missing, the balance could be off causing vibrations. It would also be a good idea to see if any hardware is loose and only needing to be tightened.

3. Having a person to assist, have that person turn on the AC and listen for a loud noise comming from the fan's electrical motor. Like any regular electric motor, bearings can wear out and squealing or other noises will be hear before it finally stops completely.

4. It the unit is not cooling enough of not getting as cold as it once did, you may need to get the coolant recharge, typically an authorized HVAC tech can do that.

5. If the AC is not blowing any cold air at all, most likely the part that is bad (cannot recall exact name right now) is like a coil; black, round, a little bigger then a quarter in diameter and a couple inches long with a couple wires on it. If you have a manual with a diagram, you may be able to locate that part.

Above all else, if there are compounded issues going on, you may want to consider a replacement instead of buying several various parts, depending on the age of the AC you have right now. It may cost a little more but a new one will come with a warranty and be more efficient.

How to turn air conditioner on

The AC typically uses the same blower as the heater to circulate the cool air. Sounds like it is working properly just turn it to cool rather than heat.

Rv slideout adjustment

Every slide out has a manual override for the motors. You should be able to call the dealer you purchased it from and they will tell you where it is. You can then adjust it back to a closed position and use it normally.

Water heater elements for 2006 conquest trailer

Remove the old element. Take note of the water heater make and model, i.e. Suburban SW6DE or Atwood GC6AA. You can find the replacement at your local RV parts department. I have even seen them at Lowe's. Or you can buy one online.
