Fixing Damaged Roof A/C Fins On Condenser

Recommended Posts

How can cooling fins on class a motor home ac roof top units be fixed or straightened, not sure if they are called cooling fins.

They got damaged in hail storm in Limon Colorado. Radiator cooling fins got damaged also ,not as bad as rooftop ac units.

Did you report it (hail damage) to your insurance company?

Make, model and year of coach, brand of ac would be a big help!

I bought a set of plastic fin combs from Amazon. It came with various sizes for different make/model of coils. Just have to be careful and go slowly so no further damage is done.

Poke a hole into the tubes and it's all over.

That's the set I use - works well unless the fins are severely bent over. In that case, I used a plastic butter knife to gently get them lifted a little so that the comb could get under them.
