Default Question about Air conditioner on 1998 22L

I took a look at a 1998 22L and everything looks fine. No leaks everything in good shape. The battery does need replaced but that's not a biggie.

2 questions: 1. Is $2,500 a good price and second While the air conditioner was on you could feel the cold air but it was not blowing very hard and then it overloaded the circuit. Should I be concerned?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Lots of variables here. If the A/C was was running on a 20 amp circuit, I can understand why it over-loaded the system, if it is the original A/C. If not, I would question how long it will last. The older A/Cs commanded lots more amps just to get started and more to run than current models. Wattage is also of concern.
As far as price, check out NADA prices for your area. NADA pricing is a bit on the high side. Hope any of this helps. Depending on your skill level, anything can be fixed.

Hope this helps you out. The AC draws a lot of amps. If it was connected to shore power, popping the circuit is understandable. It probably needs a good cleaning and tested plugged into a 30A receptacle. Good luck.

This was taken from NDgent's post here on the forum. It is a great go-by list. You can do a search of thinking about buying and find his post to read it first hand.

Basically, start with the visual items
1. Exterior
Look for water stains and discoloration on inside walls and around ceiling anywhere vents, skylights, windows, etc. exist.
Push and prod with your hand on the inside walls for soft spots (which could indicate a water leak and a damaged or rotten interior wall).
Check for bubbles in the wallpaper (a sign of delimitation or water intrusion)
2. Interior cleanliness of the unit-
Look for water stains and discoloration on inside walls and around ceiling anywhere vents, skylights, windows, etc. exist.
Push and prod with your hand on the inside walls for soft spots (which could indicate a water leak and a damaged or rotten interior wall).
Check for bubbles in the wallpaper (a sign of delimitation or water intrusion)
3. Test appliance functions
lights
fans
refrigerator
air conditioner
heater
water pump
range hood
stovetop
oven (if equipped)
microwave (if equipped)
stereo (if equipped)
4. Lift System-
Does the unit raise and lower properly
Check the lift system for hydraulic leaks (puddle under the trailer)
Check the lift cables to see if they are in good shape and not frayed
Check the seal between the upper and lower body halves for tears or damage
5. fill the tanks to the top and check for leaks
6. Battery
7. Solar Panel (if equipped)
