Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner
Unit has not been used in 6 months. compressor does not heat up. can it be recharged and if so HOW?
First check that this is not an electrical fault. If it is an electrical compressor, check the supply and measure ohm value of the coils.
If the compressor is running, but not cooling, you have probably run out of gas.
Near or on the compressor will be a redundant pipe. It should have a valve on it, but sometimes for cheapness it's just cut off after filling.
There needs to be a valve fitted on the system for it to be refilled. You may have to buy one and braze it on the pipe yourself.
After this first hurdle, most vehicle spares suppliers now have kits for replacing vehicle refrigerant - complete with hose, pressure gauge etc . Just fill a little, and check for leaks, then fill up and test.
Thanks for using fixya!
