Furthermore, why Is My RV air conditioner not cold?

There are several potential causes for the AC not keeping the air cool in your RV. It could simply be too hot outside for your AC to keep up. Depending on the size of your RV, you may need to install an additional unit to keep up on hot days. The air filters, fins, and coils are dirty!

Also, can I recharge my RV air conditioner? Unlike home split system air conditioners, RV units are not designed from the factory to be recharged. As a result you cannot check an RV unit using pressure gauges without installing valves. I am often asked by RVers to check the Freon® in their unit. In very rare instances some high end RV's do have a split system.

One may also ask, how do you reset an RV air conditioner?

Start with the obvious, inside the RV: If so, reset them by fully turning them off and then putting them back on. Remove the breaker and using your volt meter, check the power supply to the breaker. If you have power, reinsert the breaker and reset it. Remove the AC cover where the filter normally sits.
