If your RV air conditioner doesn’t seem to be operating at maximum capacity, there are a number of things you can check for and update. Proper troubleshooting of RV AC requires that you thoroughly inspect your rig for any components that might hinder airflow.

To help you discover what’s affecting your AC’s capabilities, RV expert Dave Solberg walks you through a quick troubleshooting exercise. Firstly, he shows you how to find the cold air return, which houses the filter, and explains what happens when you neglect to periodically clean the filter on an RV air conditioner.

Once you’ve either pinpointed or ruled out your filter as the culprit, Dave introduces a few more tips for getting the most out of your AC unit. And finally, he teaches you where to check and what to look for if you determine that the unit isn’t functional at all. With Dave’s advice, you’ll get it back in business and running at the top of its game!
