  • There is a spray you can get for the evaporator coils that you don't have to rinse. The main coils to wash every year are the condenser coils. Those are the first ones you showed. Awesome video! Thank you!

  • Any advice? I have to units in my 2019 Forest River 36 bhq. One in the front BR and the other, right above my tv. I can't hear the tv when its running. Will the front unit cover the kitchen area in anyway? Any help from anyone would be appreciated.

  • I swear this woman has been cloned or is one of a set of identical twins or triplets like those identical blonds who differ only by tattoos on the bottom of their feet.ย  I've just spent 4 months working on my Hauler with the Smart car ย and 5th wheel getting it ready for the trip South.ย  New water tank..6 weeks there.ย  New EZ Connectorย  cable from truck to trailer plus switching out a 4×4 box with a buss bar and cutting in a bigger inspection panel, AC heatpumpย plus 50 odd other major and minor tasks.I know how hard I worked on this as well as how much thought and planning it took do it right.ย  I have no musical skills and can guarantee I don't belly dance.ย  Nor do I spend 1.5 days on UTube vids.I will never catch up in spite of me being a Cabinetmaker/Joiner.ย  Granted she may do some things the hard way but full marks for tackling the work regardless.Does she have an off/on switch….stuck on?Someone edificate me please.

  • Nice job Pippi! As someone who has done AC work for many years, you did all the right maintenance stuff and very well. It's worth noting though, you can usually expect any AC unit to last no longer than 12-15 years, then they need to be completely torn out and replaced. The refrigerant port valves and o-rings get old & leak, you lose refrigerant, and the compressor gets less efficient over time.

  • Well done. This is the first one of your videos that I have seen. It doesn't bother me that you are not an A/C expert. More non-experts could save $$ by learning some basic maintenance. For an outside shoot, your picture and sound quality are excellent. The little tips you throw in along the way like lowering the back jacks are very helpful. You also have a charming camera presence which is also a benefit for social media. Keep up the good work.

  • HOW ABOUT A LEAF BLOWER INSTEAD OF A VACUUME CLEANER, I THINK IT WOULD TAKE LESS TIME AND REMOVE MORE, YOU INSPIRED ME TO CHECK MINE OUT, IT IS AMAZING HOW WASPS CAN GET INTO THINGS THAT YOU WOULD NEVER EXPECT, THANK YOU FOR THE GOOD VIDEO, STAY SAFE!

  • Love the spirit & attitude. Nicely done. Sounds like you have an Asian Dove in the back ground as well (Grrr) LOL. The neighbor kid was shooting at your six :-). Great video. Liked it a lot !

  • Wow just started watching your vids what a beautiful woman you are that does not mind getting her hands dirty with a great personality. You would be the perfect wife for someone. BEST OF LUCK IN ALL YOUR ADVENTURES

  • Please read.. I have a GAS powered air compressor in the back of my truck. I use it to BLOW the excess dirt dust out. And with NO WATER HOSE, I have water jugs. I set up on a piece of plywood to the side a old COLEMAN 2 BURNER CAMP STOVE with a small 16 oz bottle of propane. I heat 2 tea kettles of water to BOILING. Its completely safe. I SOAK the coils in ENGINE DEGREASER from a spray can, and some brake cleaner for spot removal. I then poor the BOILING WATER slowly onto the TOP OF THE COILS going down into the drain channel. The BOILING WATER along with the cleaner has a VERY DRAMATIC CLEANING EFFECT. You will then see a lot of black specs and dirt flakes coming out of the drain holes. A LOT MORE than cool water from a hose and cleaner alone. I refill the kettles as needed and do further spot cleaning of the coils using brake cleaner. THE BOILING WATER CLEANER COMBO GETS IT ALL. I shine a BRIGHT WHITE FLASHLIGHT thru the coils to see if I can see some more dirt that did not get out and do as needed if at all. Try it ONE TIME.
