Re: 1996-ish Intertherm Outside AC Unit won't Force Air

Bill, I was having the unit serviced (intertherm package AC...1996?) and compressor locked up. The data label could not be read because it was merely a faded, sun-drenched sticker on the outside of the unit. In the process of getting bids for a new package AC, one gray-beard got a number off of the ...

1996-ish Intertherm Outside AC Unit won't Force Air

I've a trailer at the lake with a 1996-ish Intertherm outside AC unit. The inside electric furnace, Coleman Presidential, does not have an A-coil sitting on top of it. When I turn on the thermostat to "On" and "Auto", you can eventually feel cold air at the floor directly above e...

You are correct JD. What is the best way to close that up? I tried some 100% silicone.

My Trailer Overhaul is Complete; 6+ mos.

All, I've finally finished the complete remodel of one of my mobile homes. I've learned so much in this process that I'm willing to share with this forum; just ask questions. Would I do it again? Yes. Did I spend more than I wanted to? Yes, quite a bit more. Do I have that awesome feeling of satisfa...

Re: Help with Bath Fan Ceiling Installation

A buddy and myself installed a Panasonic Whisper Ceiling Bathroom Fan FV-11VQ5 in each bathroom ceiling and vented through the roof. The total for both was $265.70. These are extremely quiet and pull LOTS of air. Outstanding investment on my part. 1. Cut out bathroom ceiling area of about 2' x 4' to...

Re: Re-pipe cost ?
