We are a licensed home improvement and roofing contractor serving Memphis, Bartlett, Cordova, Germantown, Arlington, and Collierville. Ordered an OEM capacitor on amazon for $12 & installed it per your detailed directions. Sorry Randy, I forgot to mention that this camper is set up in a seasonal campsite and never moved, it also has a shingled roof covering it and an added sun area. Home owners or contractors do have a much better alternative. Nadi – There is no way a stick damaged the capacitor and it does sound like it could be lack of Freon which would imply they didn’t set up the unit appropriately but that’s just a guess on my element. If the wood was glued down, it requires a lot of function to eliminate and probably demands special tools like a Sawsal (see video).
