The Castle is a 2005 model 22H Arctic Fox travel trailer. It has served well and we want to have it around for a long time to make great use of its experience. So when the A/C is wearing out, it did not take long, like about a half second, for the OFM to conclude that it was time to drop some money and have the A/C replaced.
After 15 years of running for long times at max output we think it is time for the Castle to get a newer unit that has heat exchanger fins that are not corroded half off the unit by the salt air of the coast and a compressor that doesn’t rattle like baby toy. It is still cooling but the 104F day did not let it shut off for over 12 hours and the Castle is only 149 SF.
The new unit will be installed Friday morning and we will be really happy that a slightly larger cooling capacity unit will be installed. The control system will change from analog to digital which we hope is a significant improvement also.
Having a quieter unit with better cooling should be a good change toward having tooooo much fun when it is HOT outside.
