Default How to remove air conditioner

I am trying to remove the roof mounted air conditioner from my 1999 Dodge 190 Versatile Road Trek. I can't find any obvious mounting screws/bolts.

Is there someone out there who could point me in the right direction??

Thank You
Steve & Connie

Take a look at Harold's site:

He replaced his Air Conditioner (on an '89 Roadtrek). It might give you the info you need.

I don't know about your specific model but I have removed my airconditioner several times now. I had to remove the filters to access some screws. Other screws were hidden under the control panel. Once the inside cover is removed, there were bolts holding brackets on the inside which held the conditioner on. I also had to remove the power wires from the unit.

Before you remove it, make sure you find a place that has the proper seal for it. I bought one that was cut at the corners so it would fold up real nice for packaging. It didn't seal and I had to replace it again. I found a rubber compound seal that works real well. I was told to put a good bead of silicon on both sides of the seal before installing the conditioner too.

Thank you both. I got it out last night. The two hidden screws behind the control panel messed me up for a while. There weren't too many screws holding the AC in. Seemed like the caulking was doing most of the work.

I'm not planning on replacing the AC, which leads to a couple new questions:

1) Did RoadTrek make a cabinet for models without the AC, and if so, is there a place I could buy one?

2) Do I need to seal off the rear vents in the top??

Thank you
Steve

I've never seen a Roadtrek without an air conditioner so I don't know if they used that area for storage.

This photo of a Great West Van shows that you can have exterior storage in the place where an air conditioner fits. I like that option for anyone who doesn't want an air conditioner.



If you're going to convert that space to interior storage then I would seal off the vents to make that compartment watertight.
