Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner
My 2004 duo therm quick cool model #59516.331 15000btu air conditioner quit blowing cold air. Somewhat cool air comes out but not enough to cool the RV in the deep south. Dealer tested it and said there is little to no freon in the close system. A friend who owns an AC repair business said to get another unit, that repairs to fix the leak are difficult and it would be better to replace it. What are my options? Do I have to buy a whole new unit, parts of the unit or what? Thank you for the help.
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.

I have a coach (2008) with 2 roof top ac units and 1 gas furnace. Zoned 1 and 2. Both units when turned on together or seperatly start the fan circuit, however the compressors do not start, and the blowers shut off after a few minutes. What the hey?

Yes they are a closed system, and most places don't want to be bothered with cutiing the line, soldering in a fitting for refill, and then find out there is a big leak somewhere, that can't be detected until you waste the freon etc. Have you owned the RV since new, and are sure it did work good before? Have you tested the temperature difference ? For example, they are really only designed to remove moisture from the inside air, as well as cool the inside air (ambient) to about 20 degreesF, below the outside temperature. Has the condensor coils/fins & evaporator coils/fins, been thoroughly cleaned recently? If they are plugged, it can significantly reduce cooling ability of the unit.
