You do not want to put insulation on all the pipes. You only want to put insulation on the pipe that is cold. You want the plumbing that is hot to dissipate the heat.

Freon exits the compressor as a high-pressure, hot gas, and it moves to the condenser. It has metal fins with a fan to blow air through them. These fins work like the radiator on a car, and they help dissipate heat more quickly

When the freon leaves the condenser, it is much cooler. It’s also changes from a gas to liquid because of high pressure. The freon makes its way into the evaporator through a small hole and when the liquid reaches the other side of this passage, its pressure drops. When this happens, the fluid begins to evaporate to gas.

As this occurs, the heat is extracted from the surrounding air. The metal fins on the evaporator also help exchange heat with the surrounding air.

When the freon leaves the evaporator, it is once again a low-pressure, chilled gas. The process starts all over when it goes back to the compressor. There is a fan that’s connected to the evaporator in the ceiling, and it circulates air and across the fins of the evaporator to provide the cooling.

RV Airflow did call me yesterday after looking at my pictures and video that I sent them. They said it was a bit of a head scratcher. He asked what coach I had and a few other questions. They weren't sure if Thor changed some of the dimensions when they mounted and setup the ductwork.

I took it back apart and sent them some of the dimensions. They are committed to coming up with a solution for my Coleman Mach 3.

Great customer service so far!

I asked them if they had one for my FW 28A. They referred me to their measurement page. I will measure when I get my MH back from service.
