RE: Alfa basement air service

Thanks again to everyone for the help. I think I finally have the basement air removal process clear in my old mind ??. It’s still working, but has a musty smell when first starting up, so I’m sure it’s in desperate need of a good cleaning. Going to get things together and tackle it sometime next week. I’ll take pictures and let y’all know how it turns out. Again, thanks so much for all the tips and advice!

RE: Alfa basement air service

The first thing an Alfa owner needs to do if they are going to spend lots of time in hot areas as we do (living in Florida) is to add a roof air in the living room. This should have been standard issue from the factory. Our experience has been that once cooled down, our basement unit will keep it cool, but if you let it get hot, or are in full hot sunshine, the basement air alone won’t bring it down. Also, with the tall ceilings, there is more volume of air to cool off compared to most other motor homes of the same length. It’s a trade off I’ll take for the ability to stand up in my motor home and see outside in about 270 degrees through the windows. Another thing I find helps is to turn on the ceiling fans to circulate the cold air if running the basement unit. The idea of “stacking” cold air from the floor up just doesn’t work well to me.

RE: Alfa basement air service

Thanks for the replies, everyone. The unit is working fine, but I’ve had it for several years now, and would like to clean the evaporator coil, as I’m pretty sure it’s getting quite dirty by now. I have a 2005 40 fd model. The inlet is above and behind the bed, and I can’t see where I could get to it easily from there to clean it in place. Guess I’ll have to set aside a couple days to try pulling the unit. I’ve heard they are removed from below, but that would involve even removing the heater ductwork as it passes below the ac unit. I’ve always been told “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, but I know dirty coils can lead to higher compressor pressures and shorter life. I’ll update if / when I get it done. Thanks!

Alfa basement air service

Hello everyone! I’m new to the forum, and looking forward to sharing my experiences with the forum, as well as looking for some guidance! I have a question about servicing my basement air unit. Is there any way to clean the coils on the unit without removing it? Maybe cut a hole something make a service hatch?? Thanks in advance!
