C-PRIME needs a new air conditioner badly...
Let me put it this way, my current air conditioner sucks! Up until last year it had been working pretty well, but then when the mercury hit 101 degrees last June that's when the problems started. The original plug for the air conditioner got so hot that it was starting to melt, which caused the unit to shut down. My step-brother had to play "surgeon" with the wiring to attach a new plug to it and get it functional again, as well as re-wire some of the outlets in the trailer so the fuse box could handle the A/C. That problem seems to be solved...however, there is another problem with it that's just as annoying and needs to be resolved at some point.
Because there is nothing over the A/C on the outside of the trailer, the compressor gets so damn hot at times that it stops blowing in cold air and it gets hot as hell indoors...even with the A/C going. Once I go outside and spray it down with some water, the compressor starts blowing in cool air again, but by then its so fucking warm that it takes several hours for it to get comfortable again.
Needless to say, this is a major pain in the ass, especially at this time of the year. I don't want to have to go outside and spray the A/C down with water just to keep it producing the cool air and I do not have the same skills that my step-brother has regarding construction or electrical wiring. Therefore, I am left with two options, either try and limp my way through the rest of the summer with what I have and get a new A/C or give in and buy a portable model. The problem is a new A/C would cost me about $300 and I really don't want to drop that kind of money on an A/C unless it was absolutely necessary or if I had the money to spare. As of right now, I have about $60 saved away in my "rainy day" fund, which would be about 20% of the way to a new A/C. However, I don't know how much longer I can deal with the air conditioner I currently have. If any of you guys can help me out with donations, advice, etc., I'll take it into consideration...but for now, I'm not sure about what I'm going to do...and I'm already starting to miss Winter. >_<
