The Basics of RV Cooling Units

The cooling unit, as seen in this photo, consists of four major components; the boiler, condenser, evaporator and absorber. This is a complex apparatus of tubes within tubes, with all of the connections exposed to the elements and often visible when looking at the refrigerator through an exterior access panel.

Cooling units, as they age, will experience some corrosion from the harsh chemicals used in refrigeration. In time, the tubing may rupture and leak a corrosive ammonia-type substance called Freon. This is why it’s important to inspect the refrigeration system periodically and listen for that telltale gurgling sound when the fridge is running. If you hear this, it’s a sign that the cooling unit is leaking and needs replacing.

A new cooling unit can save you a lot of money over time. It will also save you the headache of losing perishable food when it fails. A remanufactured cooling unit from Ozark Refrigeration is built with thicker wall seamless tubing and a more durable boiler design that lasts longer than original equipment. They will cost less to purchase and replace than a new refrigerator, too!

Besides saving space by eliminating the need for bulky ductwork, mini splits have energy efficiency ratings of 20 to 35 SEER2. This is especially valuable for RV owners that rely on solar power and lithium batteries for off-grid operation. These units can operate at a fraction of the power draw of a traditional RV AC unit and help reduce your electricity consumption by providing zoned climate control that keeps you comfortable in the spaces you use most. rv cooling units
