One of the most common problems that a lot of folks run into with RV air conditioners is damage from tree limbs, low clearance overpasses, and sometimes even signs (We’ve all been to a campground with a sign that just is too darn low!).

If you’ve been fortunate enough to avoid any external damage as we’ve listed above, if you’ve owned your RV for any length of time, your RV AC unit has most likely experienced wear and tear during all of your travels.

In Tulsa, Oklahoma we know that having a properly working AC unit is crucial during the Summer months, especially in the Southwest where we consistently experience triple digit days. Every Summer we work on my RV AC repair service orders simply because the AC is not cooling enough.  In some cases with a single unit AC setup, you simply may be not equipped with enough cooling power for the size of your cab.

The Two Main Systems in a RV Air Conditioner Roof Unit

Did you know that your roof mounted RV AC unit operates on two primary systems?


  • The Sealed System: This system is just what it sounds like. It’s sealed off from the air movement system and contains the inner workings of the air conditioner. This is where the compressor, condenser & evaporator are all stored. This is the heart of your AC unit.
  • The Air Movement System: This part of your RV AC unit contains the motor and two fans. One fan for moving air across the condenser and another fan for moving air across the evaporator.


  • Keep a close eye on your thermostat: It’s important to know the limits of your RV’s AC unit. That’s why we recommend utilizing your AC fan whenever possible to help circulate air and lower the temperature within the cab. This allows you to avoid overloading the capacity of your AC unit. By doing this, you can actually extend the life of your RV AC unit by minimizing the amount of run time and help cool the cabin faster with the help of the fan.
  • Utilize your roof vent when you’re outside: If you and your family are planning on spending a day mostly outdoors and not running the AC we highly recommend opening a roof vent to allow moisture to evaporate. This prevents condensation from pooling and prevents damage not only to your RV AC unit, but to your roof as well.
  • Always check your condenser: A blocked condenser coil will undoubtedly prevent your unit from cooling. We recommend checking your condenser at least twice per season.  On RV AC repair call we get, this is our first step. Always keep an eye on your condenser.
  • Keep The Fan Oiled: Your AC fan is probably the most hard working part of your RV AC unit and needs to be regularly lubricated to ensure that it has a long life. We recommend keeping your fan properly oiled as a preventative measure.
  • Keep Your AC Unit Covered In The Off Season: We’ve seen many RV AC repair jobs  and RV roofing repairs that could have easily been avoided by utilizing a cover for the RV AC unit.

Keeping your RV AC unit cleaned regularly and following the steps above can go a long way in prolonging the life of your unit and help you enjoy the journey even more.


Does my RV air conditioner user freon?

RV air conditioners operate similar to the way a refrigerator. 

Just like a refrigerator, an RV AC unit is hermetically sealed and most units are not typically designed to be opened and repaired. However, our team at Caney Valley RV Repair can handle any type of RV AC repair situation, and if the best possible solution is an AC unit replacement, we’ll be up front with you and let you know.

How do I clean my RV air conditioner air filter?

Our team here at Caney Valley RV Repair recommends that you clean your RV’s air conditioner air filter about every 2 to 4 weeks. The frequency of cleaning also can be dependent on how often your using your RV AC.  During the Summer months we highly recommend cleaning the air filter at least every 2 to 4 weeks.  If you neglect to clean the air filter on your RV AC unit, the build up of dirt can cause your unit to have to work even harder to produce the same amount of cool air, and ultimately shorten the life of your RV AC unit.

How to clean RV air conditioner condenser fins

The simple answer is do not attempt to clean your RV AC condenser fins  yourself. 

We recommend contacting our team at Caney Valley RV Repair for condenser fin cleanings. The main thing to look for if you are checking your condenser fins, is checking for bent fins and dirty fins.

Again, we highly recommend having one of our professionals out if you susect you’re having an issue with your condenser fins.

How to clean RV AC Condenser Coils

As we’ve mentioned above  checking your condenser coil regularly during heavy use seasons is crucial for optimal RV AC operation.  

If you do locate debris in your AC’s condenser coil, you can remove it by hand or use an air compressor to blow out debris. If you do use an air compressor it’s important to blow air from the inside out to ensure the debris is blown out of the unit.

And if you’ve already made it to the roof of your RV and have the air compressor out, it’s not a bad idea  blow out your condensation drains while you’re up there. Since these drains have very small openings, it doesn’t take much for them to become blocked.
