You most likely have a leak. That can be recharged but at RV repair labor prices you may consider replacing unit because of age. Installing a new one is pretty easy as I have installed hundreds. It only takes an about an hour with a buddy to help you.

The RV roof top AC systems are sealed systems. To recharge the AC system, access ports must be installed and R134a then recharged back into the system. This can be costly and will not always work to resolve the issue. The manufacturers do not recommend recharging the AC systems due to the fact that they hold such a small amount of charge that when they do leak out damage occurs to the compressor. In my opinion you are better off having a new AC installed (rather than paying $300-$400 to charge it and it still not work or bite the dust a month down the road and you still have to purchase a new unit) and then you have the peace of mind knowing that the unit is new and covered by a two year warranty...

Duo therm rv air conditioner repair


Sounds like thermostat is failing. There is a factory set resistor that helps the thermostat keep a 2 degree accuracy. Second possibility is that you have a fan or direct airflow from the cooling system, being devirted, that is allowing the cool air hit the thermostat on the wall.

On my 2004 duo therm rv roof a/c,I turn it on and to listen to it, everything seems fine.But it`s not cooling properly.I have changed the filter,went on roof, removed cover,motor and fan are working...


on the compressor two pipes normaly one must be very cool .and other pipe very hot this means compressor is ok
if not cooling that much means low charge of freon need repair first the leak then recharge with freon.

Dometic air conditioner blowing cool air


When the cooling slows down, but water is still running off, usually something is icing up. You can turn the unit off, and let it thaw, and try again. Sometimes, if the humidity is high, this is more pronounced. It sounds like you are low on refrigerant. That implies that you have a slight leak. You should have the unit serviced, and the leak repaired.
Best regards, --W/D--

Duo therm ac problem


Same problem. I have a 2005 on a Rockwood Roo. Worked fine in October 2009. Not working June 2010. Problem is not a freon leak, compressor went bad. I banged the compressor gently with rubber mallet then with a hammer but that did not work. The fan runs, the compressor runs but gets hot. Also no indication of freon moving through system as everything gets warm from the compressor outward.
