It’s probably a good bet you’ve never seen an A/C system in this condition.
When the fine folks of Mark’s Air in Tampa, Florida set out to work on this 2005 International 4200 truck they discovered there was considerable restriction to the airflow. It turns out the truck is used at Tampa Bay Downs race track in the stable area where considerable hay and horse bedding is constantly flying around.
What to do?
MACS Member Caroline Acebedo of Marks Air tells us,”The customer had no idea that there was a cabin air filter in the truck. The way this International is designed, when the A/C is turned off, the outside air door opens.
Due to this customer’s environment, we chose to replace the filter, clean the evaporator and case, and then unplug the outside air motor to prevent the horse bedding material from dropping down into the evaporator case again.”
